days of old Christmas


You can feel the magic in the air , it’s the Christmas
Spirit that’s everywhere.
Thanksgiving is gone and the mad rush has begun
With Black Friday sales for everyone.

Your children’s eyes are open wide , hoping to get that big surprise.
Bicycles , skateboards , roller blades and more
Electronic games . Xboxes and PS4

Yet some still hold on to days of old when children played in the cold.
Waiting for that first snowfall to build a snowman and have a snowball fight
This was the children’s delight .

Getting your sled and taking it to the top of the hill
and sliding all the way down – “was such a thrill” .
And in the city or in the suburbs , the sounds of the children’s laughter
Was all that was heard.

Where children would walk by your side greeting others
With a “ hello “ or “ hi “ and wishing everyone a a “ Merry Christmas “
And a “happy new year “ and walking the streets without any fears.

Time does not stand still and things must change, but children
Should not be in the house playing some games.

what is Christmas


What is Christmas without family , without presents underneath the tree
What is Christmas without faith , hope and love
Given to us from the Lord up above.
What is Christmas without the smiles and joys
Of the children playing with their toys.

When your mind is empty and not a memory to be found
And you feel like your dreams are laying on the ground.
This is the time that you look at the world thru the
Eyes of every boy and girl.

The spirit of a child is an everlasting light that reminds you
Of another child s sacrifice.
This vision was seen by three kings from afar who traveled
To where he was by following a star.
The gifts they gave was the start of something new
And to this day the tradition has followed through.

It is called Christmas- Christ – Mas – meaning more of Christ !
What is Christmas ?
It is different for everyone ! But for me it’s the birth of GODS SON .
