The Meaning of Christmas
Christmas time it seems to me.
Isn't what t'wns -meant to he.
Worrying, hurrying from shop to
Xever knowing when to stop.
Tinsel, hells and lights galore
Still looking for more and more.
A dress for Mom, for Dad a shirt.
Sister dear would like a skirt.
Sis and I have made a deal
To huy brother a fishing reel:
My poor allowance I fear
.Will suffer for a year.
. Christmas time it seems to me
Isn't what t'was meant to he.
Christmas Carols should he sung;
The Holy Star should he hung
Upon our Christmas tree so bright
To shine and light the Holy night.
That all should know about our
Of One who looks down from
One who sent His Only Son, that
Might with Him happy be.
.That's what Christmas t'was
meant to be.
Norma Jean Soucrs
Spirit of Christmas Eve
The Spirit of Christmas comes
happy and gay,
because of our Christ Child
born that day.
Music going from' ear to ear
brings smiles and laughter and
also tears. , .
"Children be good,", all mothers
"for the light of Christ is here
Take heed and respect our shin
which hangs in every tree
Whenever I enter a Church so
it seems empty instead of filled.
My eyes wander round to friends
yet scarcely I see their faces
Xow quick, deep breaths . have
filled tie room,
for another year is soon to
He glad !--Mcrry Christina to
