Wouldn’t life be worth the living
Wouldn’t dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?

  1. This is very similar to a Christmas program my boyfriends kids were in at his Mom’s Church. They went through each ornament on a tree and described it’s meaning to Christ’s birth. The ending was the gifts under the tree signifying the gifts the wise men brought to Baby Jesus and the gift of salvation given to us by Baby Jesus. I looked at gift giving a whole different way after hearing that. The exchanging of gifts wasn’t a duty but it DID honor Christ.
    This was wonderful to read. Thank you!
