Hello and merry Christmas, everyone! How is your Christmas day going?
I am having a lovely day so far, just relaxing and spending time with my family. I am not going to do a big post for today (and I’m not sure I’ll post anything tomorrow) but I thought that I’d pop in here and wish everyone a joyous Christmas day!
I also decided to share a little poem, written by my younger self. Keep in mind that I was probably about seven or eight when this was written and I didn’t know a lot about poem writing, so it’s definitely not the best, but I just wanted to share something about the true meaning of Christmas, and why we celebrate this lovely season. Enjoy!
When fall is gone, and winter’s here,
I know Christmas is very near.
We put up the tree, and light the lights,
Whose soft glow looks so pretty in the dark night.
On Christmas morning, you may see
Many gifts under the tree.
But, make sure not to forget:
The reason of Christmas is not the gifts.
Jesus was born on Christmas night.
In a world full of darkness, He became our light!
This is a beautiful thing to remember. Sure, presents are exciting, and baking cookies are fun, and all of these festivities seem to spread the joy of Christmas.
But, what are we really celebrating? Jesus’ birth! The coming of our Savior! To me, that is more exciting, more joyful than anything else. Just something to reflect upon.
Merry Christmas again; I hope your day is full of love, peace, and joy, family and friends!
