Christmas is a time for getting gifts
It’s a time for happiness and parties
It’s a time for Christmas carols to be sung
But without all those things, will Christmas still be the same?
Christmas is a time to be grateful
For we have friends, family, and more than enough things to treasure
But if we lose all those things, will Christmas still be the same?
Will we still thank God or will we blame Him?
We’ve grown so used to measuring Christmas by the joy it gives us
We’ve forgotten its true meaning
When we have no Christmas trees nor presents
When things only go from bad to worse ’tis season
Christmas is not superficial
Christmas is the Lord coming to this world
To show us that we have Him
Despite our worries and troubles
Christmas is about cherishing what we have
No matter how little it is
It’s about sharing our love
It’s about being the light and bringing joy to others’ hearts
The questions is have we understood this meaning of Christmas?
Have we had enough faith to smile through the storm?
Have we cherished? Have we shared?
Have we brought joy to others?
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Enjoy your presents, rejoice!
But do not ever, ever forget what Christmas really is about
Taken from the poem I wrote to complement this year’s Christmas musical with slight alterations to accommodate it being simply written, not spoken. This is loosely based on my own Christmas this year without a Christmas tree or anything to bring some sort of Christmas feel and I was listening to the song Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (which is my all-time favorite Christmas song) and reading through the musical script and this is what I got.
Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂
