Do you believe in Santa, Grandma?


christmas

 

Yes, I believe in Santa.

Don’t ask me why?

I love his red cheeks,

his jolly and heartfelt chuckle,

and chubby belly held up by a great big buckle.

 

Although you may think

I am a little too old,

I still believe in Santa Claus

truth be told

when it is time for him to appear

with his beautiful sleigh and gracious reindeer

it is also the time

that people seem to smile a little bit more

and some folks are kinder than ever before

Everything seems to be so much brighter

and the hugs that I get are a little bit tighter.

 

It is a time for family to get together

It is a time when even the sick feel a bit better

Yes, my dear grandson, I still believe in Old St. NIck!

I believe I once saw him climb down a chimney made of red brick.

Someone tried to convince it was all just a trick

But the joy and the comfort that happens to be

during this time of year is the best; Don’t you agree?

 

So, I tell you believe me

for remember it happens to be

the celebration of the birth of Jesus

and other holidays as well

when people no matter where

they may be from

celebrate love, peace

and they all seem to know

that when you believe

Who knows what miracles, together we can achieve.

It’s Christmas Time Again


It’s Christmas time again

a time to share with friends

a time to be

with family galore

and someone you adore.

 

It’s Christmas once again

to celebrate

the infant boy

born in Bethlehem.

 

We all know it is the season

we all know the reason

Joy is in the air

 

Lights shine bright

All is right

under the mistletoe

 

It’s Christmas time again

a special time of year

The message is so clear

We need to love each other

not just at Christmas

but all through the year.

“This Christmas mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. Speak your love, and then speak it again.” – Author Unknown
