Berries on the thorny firethorn bush

Hang in clusters and have turned red

Chill in the air means winter is near

Christmas on the way it can be said


Yards decorated with grapevine reindeer

Inflatable Angels, carolers too

The nativity scene in the spotlight

In a special place for all to view


Garlands hanging around the house

And in the windows candles bright

Once a sign of good news and welcome

To those that traveled at night


Colorful lights blinking on and off 

Tinsel glistening on the Christmas tree

A big star or even an angel atop

Wide-eyed children waiting anxiously


Explain to the little ones

Why we decorate and keep Jesus near

Teach them to give glory to God’s only Son

During this time every year


Gifts all wrapped and bows curled

Let the bells jingle all the way

The most important reason to celebrate

Is God’s gift, Jesus, born to us this day

 “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his

name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”

St. Matthew 1:21 KJV
