Boughs of evergreens grace mantles above fireplaces. Children await Santa Claus with smiles on their faces. Beribboned wreaths are hung on many a front door, but to me the spirit of Christmas means so much more. The greatest gift was not found beneath a tinseled tree. It was Jesus Christ, who gave up his life for you and me. Humbly born, he was laid upon a bed of straw in a stall. God gifted us His only begotten son to give hope to us all. A present so very precious, one that we can never repay. He bestowed on us a Savior, the babe born Christmas Day. We must always hold dear to how much we are blessed, as we sing 'Joy to the World' when our love is expressed. We fill our churches with candles, admiring their glow. As moonlight shines across white fields of fallen snow, we pray, giving thanks to God, remembering to be meek, for it's our Father's divine favor that we reverently seek. Christmas is a time for Christians to celebrate and rejoice, praising the Lord in lyrical hymns raised in adoring voice. With myriads of Angels in chorus, let us worship and sing, "All glory to God," as the bells from church steeples ring. The true Christmas spirit is not gifts with huge price tags or new toys for children that fill too many shopping bags. It should proclaim "peace on earth, good will toward men." So, to this end we pray to God in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Reading that gave me the Christmas spirit, and that's not easy to do. With all the hype and fan fair some years I don't get it at all. A truly superb poem Jenna. Not sure if I am allowed say it, but its got to be a length ahead in the running for the contest.

Love this Jenna, so well composed capturing the real meaning of Christmas. Sad really that many haven't a clue why Christmas is celebrated and just get drunk and overeat. Best of luck with this gem. Tom
