Christ is Born

Christmas trees arrayed in splendor,
Gifts wrapped and ribboned, topped with bows.
Stockings that the children long for,
A home so lighted that it glows.

Friends and family come together,
Smiles and hugs and joy to spare.
Amidst the cold and snowy weather,
Warm season’s greetings many share.

Milk and cookies by the fire,
Kisses under mistletoe.
Presents stacking ever higher,
Parties come and parties go.

In the midst of jubilation,
Don’t forget this season bright
Honors angelic proclamation
“Christ is born this Christmas night.”
