 What is Christmas about anyway?
What does it all mean this happy holiday?
Some guy up North is laughing at us,
Ho Ho Ho!
Oh by jingle, bring out old Chris Kringle,
To light up every lawn on the block.
Put aside those Christmas blues,
Instead lets decorate,
 Keeping our spirits lite,
With decorations delights.
Don't you remember cold winter
Hanging a hundred strains, of 
Decorative multicolored lights.
After all your hard work,
One bulb, just flickers,
Then without warning,
It goes out completely.
Deck those halls, drag out the, 
Holly, put up the mistletoe by golly.
Let us welcoming a new tradition,
Started by the baby boom generation.
Black Friday's shopping extravaganza,
 Which begins at the crack of dawn.
Brave souls camping out, huddled together,
Just to save a dollar.
Frozen gnomes, with coffee cups held tightly,
Standing in a everlasting line,
Patiently, waiting for the doors to finally open.
After arriving home, grateful it's all over.
Then realizing it's time, to do all the
 Joyous wrapping.
 So open the eggnog, pour me a glass,
I'll drink it down in celebrations repast.
Bring on the turkey with sides galore,
Shall we not feast until theirs no room for more.
But really to me it's all about a time long ago,
In a manger far away, beneath a shinning star,
Here a tiny baby was born,
And he smiled at mankind's world.
Family, loved ones gathered near,
Hearts in hand.
 Embracing each other with happiness,
Love and good cheer.

    I enjoyed this poem Cherie, and you are right. I am not a Christian or any other religion, But Christmas time is a beautiful time, bringing love out, and this is beautiful. And if the baby Jesus symbolizes this, then folk should remember .I loved your words....peter

    Yes, they have really made a farce out of something which should be sacred, though I don't believe the son of Mary & Joseph was the messiah, I do believe that each child born brings forth the possibility of man becoming more godlike, and that birth is a sacred gift, and that God is INSIDE all of us as well as outside! Go back to 'making gifts' those were real gifts, gifts of time and company & of the heart! Light & Love

    I agree with you, Cheryl, this time of year is all about love and family. We should be worrying about spending time with our loved ones, and not about spending our money! I love the message you send in this poem! Fantastic work, my friend!...Thank you for the kind comments. I appreciate it very much!
