From mind to paper and back again.

The Meaning of Christmas

on December 1, 2008

Snow turns to rain as the day thaws out

And the ice on the road turns to sleet

Some people wonder what the fuss is all about

Dreams only come in your sleep


First of December is here again

With the promise of snow – not rain

Our winter wonderland is nearly here

And children will play without fear


That jolly fat man dressed all in red

Will creep down our chimneys when we’re tucked up in bed

He’ll leave dirty footprints all covered in soot

And wake us from our slumber, our sleep, our rut


Presents will line the Christmas tree base

And all our troubles will fall into place

Just to see a smile light up a loved one’s face

Now that’s the meaning of Christmas
