A Family Christmas


Christmas is the time of year
for celebration and good cheer.
A time to laugh and shout and sing,
and be thankful for everything.

Santa Claus won't come to town,
If you don't put on your nightgown
and go to bed on Christmas Eve
with thoughts of the presents you'll receive.

Family are a part of it;
the lovely Christmas tree is lit.
The bells in the church are ringing clear -
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
