  1. 81. Spread The Word (A Shepherd's Christmas Story)

    This a poem of the story of Christmas as witnessed by the shepherds.

    The stars shone bright one silent night when shepherds saw a brilliant light.
    They heard the angels sing their song, "The Lord, the Savior has been born.
    In swaddling clothes You'll find the babe within a manger filled with hay."
    The angels sang:

  2. 82. Two Letters To Santa

    As a child growing up in Newfoundland, I remember one Christmas when there was no snow a week before Christmas and how concerned I was that Santa might not be able to come without it. But, ah not to worry, by Christmas Eve we had at least a foot of snow on the ground. I can still remember the intense relief I felt that Santa would have no problem getting to my house.

    I wrote a letter to Santa
    To make sure he would know
    It's only two weeks until Christmas
    And we still don't have any snow.

  3. 83. A Precious Christmas Memory

    I worte this poem about a tradition that my Dad and I had of putting up the Christmas lights together.

    In the damp, dusty cellar, surrounded by boxes,
    Our excitement just grows without measure.
    Searching and sorting with loud shouts of glee,
    As we uncovered the grand Christmas treasure.

  4. 84. Christmas In My Eyes

    Christmas for me is a time filled with love and joy and family. It celebrates a historical event that forever changed the world as we know it: the birth of Jesus. This time is special because I get to reflect on the year and everything God has done for me. I get to spend time with my friends and family. That's why I love Christmas.

    People saying, "Ho, Ho, Ho"
    Lovers kissing under the mistletoe
    Children playing in the snow

  5. 85. Two Christmas Blessings From Above!

    My poem is a special Christmas poem. I wrote it for my niece and her two precious new babies. These two little miracles brought back the gift of joy, love, merriment, and cheer to our family's life after a period of loss and grief of some very special family members, especially since our loss and grief occurred during the Christmas season. I am trying to acknowledge how God has a miraculous plan in our lives. Even in the midst of grief, He blesses us! These two babies are our Christmas blessings!!

    Once upon a Christmas time, not very long ago,
    was a loving family that lost all Christmas glow.
    Tears of sadness filled the air; no more merriment or cheer.
    Loss and grief of loved ones gone, so hard to bear and carry on,

  6. 86. Santa's Gift

    Christmas is a magical time of year, a time when anything seems possible and we rise above petty differences and unimportant spats to wish the best for people everywhere. Santa Claus is the embodiment of the spirit that encompasses us during this season of happiness and good will. There are those, of course, who find no joy in Christmas, but perhaps with Santa's help, there is hope for them too.

    The laughter of eternity's children
    Resides in the glint of his eyes,
    And his joyous laugh, which surrounds us all,
    Leaves an echo that never dies.

  7. 87. Pets In The North Pole

    • By Peyton
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2012

    I have a cat at home named Maxine. She is very playful, and I love her so much. I just wanted her to enjoy Christmas as much as I do, so I wrote this poem for her. It really helps you imagine what it would be like if your pet was one of Santa's helpers flying through the air on Christmas Eve. It really does make you laugh thinking about what it would be like.

    Hear Ye, Hear Ye there is much to do,
    But the reindeer up north have caught the flu!

    The presents are wrapped, the sleigh is all set,

  8. 88. A Search This Christmas

    • By Leslie C. Boren
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2015

    Wondering if I can find another soul going through Christmas alone.

    Christmas looms near.
    People pass by,
    singing and smiling,
    and giving good cheer.

  9. 89. Christmas Memories

    Christmas was once a happy time of the year, but since losing my mother in 2005, then my wife in 2010, all that's left are memories. Grief never goes away. We learn to live with it. Christmas day is the toughest time.

    ​It's such a warming feeling
    Being surrounded by Christmas
    Expectation fills the air.
    The sparkle, the glitter

  10. 90. Christmas Time

    • By Nicola Fisher
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2014

    This was a poem I wrote for my three-year-old sister for Christmas time.

    In the distance, quite afar
    I see the bright shining star
    Although it's quite far away
    It begins the story of this special day

  11. 91. Elfie

    This poem is to remind children the reason we celebrate Christmas. It's not just about receiving lots of presents; it's rejoicing in the holy birth of Jesus and what that's all about. It's about learning to look for the good in other people, wherever, whoever, whatever they are.

    There was a voice in the wilderness,
    An eerie, heart-rending, dismal sound.
    'Twas Elfie the elf, and he'd gotten lost.
    All he could see was snow and frost.

  12. 92. Santa Claus

    I wrote this for my children. Christmas is very special to my children. They talk about Santa all day, and I love that innocence. I thought it would be cute to write a poem about Santa Claus and bring out that childlike wonder.

    There's something truly magical
    that happens once a year.
    He comes while you are sleeping,
    he and his reindeer.

  13. 93. Soldiers' Christmas

    Our soldiers know exactly what it is like to be serving so far away from home and thinking about you on Christmas Day (and every other day). Your letters and care packages mean so very much to them. Many of them are in Iraq and Afghanistan where life is waiting for the next gun shot or explosion. Many others are in support postings elsewhere. I have a friend serving in a German hospital where her patients are wounded soldiers from the war zones. She has a deep need to know that you care about her. They all do!

    Creeping through the silent night,
    Things that move are things of fright,
    Sleigh bells never ringing now
    Angels seldom singing now

    A family getting together for Christmas is an amazing thought and is so special because some people do not see their families at Christmas. Others don't even have families to get together...

  14. 94. Minstrels

    In this famous narrative poem, William Wordsworth (1770-1850), recounts a Christmas tradition. Minstrels would travel door to door, playing music and providing wishes for a great Christmas season. In true Wordsworth fashion, this poem highlights the natural elements of the night. He uses descriptive language such as lofty moon, encircling laurels, and dazzling sheen.

    The minstrels played their Christmas tune
    To-night beneath my cottage-eaves;
    While, smitten by a lofty moon,
    The encircling laurels, thick with leaves,

    • By Astrid Hardjana-Large
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2018

    To capture the joy of Christmas and encourage the love of family, I composed a terzanelle to celebrate Christmas. My words are filled with what I look forward to and the spirit I love to see at this time of year.

    'Tis the season for lots of love.
    Gather all friends and family
    And celebrate the joys from above.

  17. 97. The Next Time Santa Comes

    This is a poem about Santa Claus from a child's point of view.

    The moon reflects the fallen snow
    And makes it light as day
    I lay awake upon my bed,
    As the clock tick tocks away.

  18. 98. Kriss Kringle

    Filling stockings at Christmastime is one of the traditions of Santa Claus. In this cute holiday poem, he also leaves a sweet surprise for the birds, a surprise to be enjoyed by everyone on Christmas morning. Thomas Bailey Aldrich (1836-1907) wrote short stories, novels, and poems. He liked to use unexpected endings in his short stories.

    Just as the moon was fading
    Amid her misty rings,
    And every stocking was stuffed
    With childhood’s precious things,

  19. 99. Star Of The East

    In this poem, famous poet Eugene Field (1850-1895) shares the hope of Christmastime. It starts with a short retelling of the Christmas story. Then it moves to an invitation for the reader to be like the wise men and lay their hearts and gifts before the Child of Bethlehem.

    Star of the East, that long ago
    Brought wise men on their way
    Where, angels singing to and fro,
    The Child of Bethlehem lay—

  20. 100. Christmas Jewels

    In this poem, I sought to capture a more happy and secure time growing up with my family. It wasn't always a bed of roses, but family Christmases in my memory were always an oasis of contentment.

    Oh, to capture Christmas
    In the palm of one's hand;
    To clasp, like a jeweled strand,
    Every memory dear and grand.
