  1. 61. Christmas Past, Present And Future

    In December 2013 our daughter Vickie lost her fight for life after being diagnosed with cancer. She had fought so bravely. In April 2013 she was given the news that she was in remission. In July that year, my wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. Vickie, her two sisters, and I secretly planned a renewal of our wedding vows. We booked the church and the reception, and I surprised my wife with details three days before. Vickie was told in September the cancer had returned.

  2. 62. Christmas Carol

    Sara Teasdale recounts the birth of Jesus and all who came to visit him. Some were wealthy, while others were poor. Some resided on Earth, while others came from heaven. All came to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Sara Teasdale was an American poet born in Missouri on August 8, 1884. She had six collections of poetry published during her lifetime and one published posthumously.

    The kings they came from out the south,
    All dressed in ermine fine;
    They bore Him gold and chrysoprase,
    And gifts of precious wine.

  3. 63. Forever And A Day

    Traditions give us a sense of belonging. They bring our families and loved ones together. We create a lasting bond that will give us comfort through the good and bad. Traditions are the foundation of our families. Traditions are what we look forward to, especially during the holidays.

    If I had one Christmas wish
    For family and friends this year,
    We would take the opportunity to strengthen values and beliefs
    We hold so dear.

  4. 64. The Miracle Of Christmas

    In 2011, my mother passed away 2 days before Christmas at the age of 98. I was so thankful she was a Christian and I knew she was with Jesus but felt immediately that Christmas would never be the same...a sad time of year. As soon as I thought that, I felt her come to me in her spirit and say..."Christmas is NOT about my death; it's about HIS birth!" I felt immediate peace. Each year when I get overwhelmed, I remind myself what Christmas is really about...thus the poem.

    Mary was chosen; how could this be true?
    A young girl and virgin was who they all knew.
    Cousin Elizabeth, too, six months was she.
    Her son was John, a "forerunner" he would be,

  5. 65. Christ's Advent

    The time leading up to Christmas is its own special time, which is often glossed over and lost in the Christmas festivities that begin as early as late November. L.M. Montgomery in her Anne of Green Gables noted that the anticipation is most of the fun. If you jump into Christmas too early, Christmas becomes old news before it actually arrives. Further, you miss the growing magic feeling derived from the waiting. You cheat yourself of the true Christmas feeling. Merry Christmas!

    Silent soft snow descends.
    Lights reflect into the night.
    The world seems to wait,
    Hushed before Christmas's delight.

  6. 66. The Old Man

    • By Ziggy71
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 18, 2021

    Many people struggle during the Christmas season, no one to share the holidays with, no one to visit, or no one to visit them. The emphasis during the holidays is family and friends, but many people, young and old have neither. Many dread the holidays. I was hoping this poem would shed some light on the subject and inspire people to visit shut-in people, say hello, pray with them, stay a while sharing food, drink, and love.

    No Christmas cards this time of year, no one sends them anymore,
    no Christmas tree to decorate, no Yuletide wreathe on the door.

    No one comes to visit, to wish him Christmas cheer,

  7. 67. Christmas Day

    It seems children believe Christmas is more about Santa than Jesus.

    Across a white December night,
    Each home is filled with candle light.
    The moon shines brightly in a golden sky.
    Stars are twinkling way up high.

  8. 68. My Childhood Christmas Memories

    I've always loved Christmas, but I've never recaptured the magic of childhood Christmases; that is until I had a child of my own. A childhood Christmas is the best Christmas - full of innocence and wonderment, and seeing it through the eyes of a child once more is a true gift.

    My childhood Christmas memories always make me smile.
    I'll often drift to long ago and stay there for a while.
    Remember singing carols long before the date?
    Of counting days from Halloween, I really couldn't wait.

  9. 69. My Christmas Wishes

    As one gets older, sadly we see many loved ones pass on, and over the Christmas season they're missed more than ever. Memories of the happy times that were shared stay alive in heart and mind, always and forevermore.

    I wish for my lost loved ones to spread wings
    So they'd fly back and share all Christmas things,
    Just as they did back in their days on earth
    And the holy birth was a source of great mirth.

    To me, it's what the true meaning of Christmas is about.

    H----Hallelujah, praise God for his birth
    R----Rejoicing our Lord has come
    I-----Immanuel, God's chosen one

  11. 71. Christmas

    It's a birthday, a time of joy. Gifts for all and love and peace. Cold winter nights and pretty lights. All these are symbols of Christmas, a story told the world over. A gift of all gifts.

    December is here and there's ice all around.
    All the leaves are gone and the soil has hardened on the ground.

    Icy breath as you exhale,

    This story was created from my inspiration of each Christmas day and the memories made.

    It is seven a.m.,
    And the snow is falling
    As I look outside
    At the carolers calling.

  14. 74. Christmas Lesson

    • By Julesies
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2014

    This is a poem I wrote to help others really think about Christmas. I feel like too many people today only think about what they are going to get for Christmas and not what they are going to GIVE for Christmas. So this is just something I want to share to warm people's hearts.

    Christmas is a special time
    To give, to serve, to love.
    It isn't just about yourself,
    But others that you think of.

  15. 75. Dreading Christmastime

    • By Victoria L. Thomas
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2016

    I lost my husband in September, and I am dreading this coming Christmas without him. We were together 10 years and got married in May; it would have been our first Christmas together as a married couple. I don't know how I'm going to get through this coming season.

    I'm dreading Christmastime this year
    Because I have so much to fear:

    An empty space beside my chair,

  16. 76. It's Still About Jesus

    • By Paul Felix
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2020

    Have you ever thought about how Christmas began, a baby, a manger, a barn full of animal friends? Or was it the star of David that shined so bright, or the sound of the angel in a majestic flight? Whatever the reason, season, or birth...a child born of heaven brought peace to hurting earth.

    For every Christmas carol we sing,
    For every present under the tree,
    For every child that smiles with glee,
    It's still about Jesus.

  17. 77. Ode To A Holiday

    • By Mark Weismantel
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2018

    For some, Christmas is a time of great joy. For others, it is not. I enjoy writing poetry and try to write meaningful poems. I use a rhyming scheme as my style. I'm just an amateur.

    Upon us now is that time of year again
    When we think a lot about our family and friends.

    The days are short and the nights are cold,

  18. 78. Angel With A Gold Bow

    • By Virginia A. Parks
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A whimsical holiday tale, I wonder if it's true.

    The boys sit down in the park beneath the tree,
    Praying that their parents could look down and see
    The beautiful angel on top with the pretty gold bow,
    And all of the presents that lay wrapped below.

  19. 79. Blessings And Good Tidings

    To me, Christmas is a time of love and joy, where we put aside our hatred to enjoy the season and spend time with family and friends.

    Rows of houses blanketed with snow.
    Christmas lights lucent and aglow.
    A reindeer, a sleigh, like artwork on display.
    Stories unraveling, brass bells ringing,

    Though I live in Australia, I can picture the scene in my mind's eye. It's reminiscent of a Charles Dickens scene from Scrooge. I love the poem and appreciate the words and talent of the poet.

  20. 80. Christmas Is Here

    There are many Christmas traditions like putting up trees and handing stockings. These traditions have developed from generation to generation.

    Cold days and hard long nights.
    Trees shimmed with tiny lights,
    Their branches pointing ever high,
    Reaching for the midnight sky.
