“A Christmas Story”

Many listen for the sleigh bells
That in a far off distance ring
Yet others shout Hosanna’s
For the new born Savior King.
 
Now Christmas day is celebrated
In many a varied way
For the Christian it’s quite religious
But with non-believers, just a holiday.
 
The Wise Men traveled to Bethlehem
Just guided by a star
They were bearing gifts for the Baby Jesus
Which all brought from afar.
 
Today most rely on Santa Claus
And his reindeer overhead
The principal is much the same
But they’re store bought gifts instead.
 
Yes the stores put out their welcome mat
Two months before Christmas day
Trying to help us fill our shopping list
In a most beneficial way.
 
We all help them with their efforts
For the needs are much abused
In the corner of room number three you’ll find
Some toys that haven’t been used.
 
Just throw away the want list
And to all little children bring
Clothes that will keep them all warm
Until the first breath of spring.
 
On Christmas Eve, fill up all the stockings
So all is ready for Christmas morn
Yes and while opening presents take time to remind
That today the Christ Child was born.
