Poems for Christmas

In today's world we are inundated with images of Christmas from the media. We are told that it is all about buying expensive gifts for each other.

A holiday is about the time spent together with loved ones. It is about gifts that come from the heart, and it is the about the thousands of years of tradition that mark the holiday season.

    Seems like a lifetime ago, though I remember it so well.
    It was a Christmas Eve I'll never forget as far as I can tell.

    The nights are long and cold, the sun is hardly around.
    Christmas time is approaching, and snow will soon cover the ground.

    The Christmas spirit is all around, as carols are being sung.
