Do they celebrate Christmas in Heaven?
What a glorious sound it would be
If all of the angels were singing,
Gathered round a big evergreen tree.
Will you have some children to read to,
Like those wonderful yuletide’s of old?
Will you be chosen to tell them
The story you once happily told?
Another Christmas without you,
I’m missing you still, my dear son.
But if they have Christmas in Heaven,
Then perhaps you will not miss the fun.
I know that God must have noticed
How you like to spread Christmas joy.
And perhaps He will let you play Santa,
To a small angel girl or boy.
I can see those small cherubs jostling
To be invited to sit on your knee,
While you tell them the old, beloved story,
Of how Christmas first came to be.
