Christmas Joys

Christmas-wishes

Evergreen boughs that fill our homes
With fragrant Christmas scents,
Hearts filled with the loving glow
That Christmas represents;

Christmas cookies, turkeys stuffed,
Festive holly berry,
Little faces bright with joy,
Loved ones being merry;

Parties, songs, beribboned gifts,
Silver bells that tinkle,
Christmas trees and ornaments,
Colorful lights that twinkle;

Relatives waiting with open arms
To smile and hug and kiss us;
These are some of the special joys
That come along with Christmas.

The Nicest Present

christmas_present-1

Under the tree the gifts enthrall,
But the nicest present of them all
Is filling our thoughts with those who care,
Wanting our Christmas joy to share.

To you, whom we’re often thinking of,
We send our holiday joy and love.

By Joanna and Karl Fuchs

Poems to send on Christmas


 

Somehow, not only for Christmas,
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others,
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing,
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing,
Returns to you glad. – John Greenleaf Whittier

Wouldn't life be worth the living
Wouldn't dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?

Roses are reddish
Violets are bluish
If it weren't for Christmas
We'd all be Jewish. – Benny Hill

I love the Christmas-tide, and yet,
I notice this, each year I live;
I always like the gifts I get,
But how I love the gifts I give! – Carolyn Wells

He who has not Christmas in his heart will
never find it under a tree. – Roy L. Smith

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away;
While quite unselfish, it grows small. – Eva K. Logue

A Christmas gambol oft could cheer
The poor man's heart through half the year. – Walter Scott

At Christmas play and make good cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a year – Thomas Tusser

Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind;
Teach us to be patient and always to be kind. – Helen Steiner Rice
