The year slipped by so fast

That it’s Christmas time again

What does Christmas mean?

Is it plainly a holiday

When gifts flood the day?

Or is it much more significant

Than all the commercials chant?

Today thee’s a new Christmas song in the air telling us what Christmas is all about. The song says it all and it’s so beautifully sung by the American Christian Life United (ACLU) Choir, making “Say Merry Christmas” the greatest Christmas song of all times.

On my part, I have written a poem in 1992 expressing & concurring exactly with this new Christmas song:

Christmas

This is the day that the Lord hath made & the season too

Let us rejoice & be in it to the full.

Christmas is a season of cheers

And there’s every reason to steer

Our hearts & love to the Lord

God‘s only beloved Son to adore.

Christmas is a season of loving & giving

In our hearts much forgiving & forgetting

Loving without reservation

And giving without compensation.

Christmas is a season of rejoicing

Rejoicing in our Lord’s coming

We sharer joy with the unjoyful

We share gifts with the needful.

Christmas is for one & all

Without exception we should call

And shout to the world at large

To heed, change & our spirit to charge.

Significantly, this is one celebration celebrated the world over by every colour, race or creed, young & old, rich or poor!
