Poems about Christmas for Family and Friends
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.
