A poem about Christmas and what it means to me.

What is Christmas?

Snow fell from the sky and covered the ground Snowflakes ever so gently landing safe and sound Children watching inside homes, eyes widening in delight “Perhaps we may have some snow on Christmas night...”

Hot cocoa slipping down my lungs and into an empty stomach Every bit of the drink I had loved it Soft marshmallow were the cherries on top I tried to slurp it down without making a slop

Christmas trees carried into homes then decorated with ornaments of one’s own Shining through a dark house with it’s bright lights and a star or an angel on top, whichever you’d like

Presents finally unwrapped on Christmas Day! Homes filled with children rejoicing, “Yay!” Stockings filled to the brim with candies of all sorts Kids no longer holding back exhorts

As Christmas music swelled and the snow fell I couldn’t help but day dream “maybe, just maybe, a Merry Christmas this will be.”

When you think of that day, what do you see? Lights, presents underneath your tree? While all those things are lovely and kind, Let me tell you what I have in mind:

Years ago, a humble Savior was born Later in life, was whipped and clothes torn Died on a cross with no regrets Bled all He had till He had nothing left

Suffered under the reign of Pontius Pilate but yet, on this day, why do His struggles go a bit silent? Came down to us as a babe to pay the price for mistakes WE made

Christmas is not about material things, it is not about the songs we sing or jingle bells that ring It is about hope and this child, wrapped in cloth in a manger back then, just seen as a baby but today, a Savior.

Merry Christmas to you all. I hope you enjoyed it as well as this poem. ❤️💚❤️💚❤️💚
