What Christmas Means to Me


The brisk, quiet, star-lit nights
With people on the go
The hustle and bustle of shopping
While praying for it to snow

Decorating the tree and the house
A Nativity Scene on the lawn under the sky
Angels placed all around it
For all to see, who come by

Baking cookies and other treats
Addressing cards to send to friends
It can be busy and hectic
But you hope it will never end

Everyone is usually happy
With smiles all around
People greet others cheerfully
It is such a joyous sound

Children are filled with anticipation
Wondering what gifts they might get
Parents hide these treasured packages
So the children won’t see them yet

Many parties are held
Where people get together for fun
They talk about how exhausted they’ll be
Once the season is done

People go off their diets
And eat much more than they should
It’s difficult to pass up the food
Because all of it is so good

People start getting serious
As the special day draws near
Carolers sing wonderful songs
They are a joy to hear

The special day known as Christmas
Is the anniversary of Jesus’ birth
It’s a day that is held most holy
All around the earth

As we gather in churches on Christmas
Remember to thank God above
For sending His Son to redeem us
And filling our hearts with love

Christmas to me is the gathering of family and friends. It is about sharing each other's love and spending time with each other.

I recently started my own business online (Fairy Tale Greetings). Our business creates personalized letters from Santa Claus to send to your child from the North Pole! Come check out !

Ahhh!!! Finally! Ok, so I apologize for the enthusiasm, but this is the closest I've come to finding someone even remotely as crazy about Christmas as I. I've been looking online for several weeks and have come up empty handed until this moment. I considered putting up my own site - and I still may - but this is fantastic! I'm pretty bad off when it comes to Christmas. I work a desk job and 99.9% of the time my music of choice is Christmas. And while I don't wish time away because I have two kids, it seems the months that pass are just inconvenient necessities that must be experienced just to get me to the time of year I think it should stay. Anyway, thank you for being excited about Christmas enough to make a year 'round site dedicated to it. I'm thrilled! Now back to the heat and humidity!

I love Christmas! Especially Christmas in July!

I'm starting to prepare early this year and I've been looking for ideas of what to get my boyfriend for our first Christmas together! So far, I've decided to get some personalized Christmas ornaments... ( kind of like these http://www.ornamentsandmore.com/1st-christmas-ornaments.aspx ) but I'm looking for some other great ideas too!

I hope to get some great ideas from your blog sometime! :)

personally, I love the way friends and family all gravitate to the table, which has a beautiful Christmas floral centerpiece on it. this year I tried a new florist in Danville, CA, called Danville Florists & Gifts. if you're anywhere in the Bay Area I'd recommend checking them out - here's their website: danville-florist.com

Great festive poem. It's always a good feeling that Christmas is coming, and also the moods and seasons are a changing.
And this is true whether one celebrates Christmas or not.

Very insighful, love the poem.
I just want to give an advice.
I think your writing is kinda hard to be read, I don;t know if it's the background or the font color.
