Do They Believe

I think it is quite odd,
Some children don't know God
Yet in Santa they believe;
Filled with trinkets and toys
Forget the baby boy
Whose blessed gift we receive.
With him we share this day
And always it will stay
In our hearts this Christmas eve.

    Excellent way to do his poetry form, Craig. I really need to try this form but I don't think I can match this one!!

    I was raised Catholic so I believed in God and my thoughts were Christ is the reason...I dislike when they remove Christ from Christmas, and I bah humbug the holiday a lot because it's not about receiving gifts... anyway, good write, very wide words,,, good luck in the contest... :)
