Christmas Is Home

The holiday season is definitely upon us and I'm enjoying it but struggling to keep up! I love all of our fun Christmas traditions. One of my traditions is to write a new poem during the holidays. I thought you might enjoy a poem I wrote a few years back about this time of year.
Merry Christmas!

Christmas Is Home

Home is a cozy fire crackling
As a family sings “Silent Night.”
Laughter as a little child sees
Their first Christmas light.
Home is putting the first ornament
On the Christmas tree
And wishing for toys
On Santa’s knee.
Because Christmas isn’t Christmas
Without home, and a house
Isn’t a home without Christmas.

Music from pianos, voices, and violins,
Signals it’s Christmas Eve again.
Sacred verses bring to mind
The Virgin Mary’s miracle birth,
When our dear Savior came to earth.
We invite him to our home each day
And at Christmas time in a special way,
We remember him.
For Christmas isn’t Christmas
Without Christ
And a house isn’t a home
Without CHRISTmas.
