What Christmas Is All About

I found this beautiful poem while surfing on the internet & I would like to share this poem to all Christian especially who celebrating Christmas. Yes, this is the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you to M.S.Lowndes for this meaningful Christmas poem.

Christmas will always be for us
A time to reflect on Christ
The gift God gave to all the world
Was the gift of His life

We know Christmas is not about tinsel
Nor fancy Christmas wreaths
Nor is it about all the decorations
That adorns our Christmas trees

And it’s not about Holly or Mistletoe
Hanging from our doors
Nor is it about the gifts that are left
By the jolly Santa Claus

Christmas is more than all of this
And the only reason why
We celebrate Christ’s birth together
And the wonder of His life

So remember as you celebrate
Just what it’s all about
And invite the Lord to join with you
Instead of leaving Him out

For He will always be the reason
We celebrate this day
No substitute the world may offer
Can take that meaning away

What a sweet poem! I hope your Christmas was happy and sweet. It is too bad you won't get snow, but I am jealous that I won't be able to attend the wedding next summer of my very close friend (which will be in Malaysia) so we are even. :)
