C is for the Christ Child who came to bring us Light,
To lead us to eternal joy in His mercy and His might.
H is for the holly hanging on the walls
Green and red festooning, decking all the halls.
R is for reindeer that bring Santa’s sleigh,
Hauling all the presents that we open Christmas Day.
I is for icicles on the tree’s limbs
Sparkling even when all the light dims.
S is for Santa who brings treats and toys
To delight all good little girls and boys.
T is for trimming- trees, gifts, or halls
With tinsel and garland and bright Christmas balls.
M is for mistletoe and kisses we steal
With love and affection and special Yule zeal.
A is for angel on top of the tree,
Glittering, sparkling… as bright as can be.
S is for salvation- Christ’s mission on earth.
The way to the cross began on the day of His birth.
Christmas is a big concept. I think there is plenty of room in Christmas for secular tradition and festivity. I enjoy the ho ho ho and the fa la la. For me, though, Christmas begins and ends with Jesus.
Have a happy and holy Christmas! Yuletide blessings to you and yours.
