Give Me An Old Christmas

I want an old Christmas,
The same as years ago;
Carolers singing, church bells ringing,
Children playing in the snow

I want a horse and carriage,
To lead me through the cold;
I'd bring home the biggest tree,
Just like the days of old

Long before technology,
Life was simple and plain;
The true meaning of Christmas,
A season for hope to claim

Before the twinkling lights,
Candles flickered with grace;
Families gathered together,
Sharing spirits by a fireplace

The fresh scent of pine,
Wooden ornaments cast their spell;
Tiny hearts embraced in awe,
For another Christmas tale! 

Folks throughout the community,
Assembled as one in prayer;
The old spirit of Christmas,
Casts its elegant flair

Garland adorns each nook,
Snow mocks a silent mime;
Mistletoe and scented wreaths,
The magic of Christmastime!

No fancy gifts or presents,
Beneath the Christmas tree;
Hands clasped in harmony,
Hearts as one with unity

The aroma of a turkey,
Welcomed neighbors passing by;
Children prowled the kitchen,
For a sliver of grandma's pie!

Bring back the days of Christmas,
When Christ was the celebration;
God gave His greatest gift of all,
Peace on earth to every nation!

    I loved this Milton, yes bring back the old way of celebrating Christmas, when love was the cheer, and greed didn't come near. The amount of presents didn't matter, just the fact that everyone was near. Sincerely, Moses
