Christmas Poems

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. In today's challenging economic times it is a tragedy that parents spend way more than they can afford to try to please their children. The sad truth is that, "money can't buy you love". 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.

    Poem About Missing Dad On Christmas

    Picture

    The nights are long and cold; the sun is hardly around.
    Christmas time is approaching, and snow will soon cover the ground.
    Trees and lights are twinkling; stockings are being hung.
    The Christmas spirit is all around as carols are being sung.

  6. Mama's Christmas Miracle

    Mama told me a story a long, long time ago, not like any that I'd ever heard,
    all about a little girl mama used to know, how I remember every word.
    Seems like a lifetime ago, though I remember it so well.
