Christmas Is A Time

Christmas Is A Time

A Chapter by Debbie Barry

Written in 7th grade, about the meaning of Christmas.


Christmas Is A Time


Christmas is a time for loving
Those who, to you, are dear.
Christmas is a time for caring
For those for whom no one cares.
Christmas is a time for laughing,
Not at people, but with.
Christmas is not just December.
Christmas is all the year through.
Christmas is a joyous time
When everyone should live.
Christmas is for giving love,
Not just receiving gifts.

Nice positive poem which lifted my solemn spirits on a dank dreary night.
Unfortunately Christmas is all about commercialism in reality.
