With all the children, far and near,

Today we'll sing a song of cheer!

To rosy lips and eyes, so merry,

We'll all kiss under the holly berry;

And for the sake of the small and gay

We'll be children also for to-day.

Short Christmas Poems: Christmas Day

By George MacDonald

Star high,

Baby low:

'Twixt the two

Wise men go;

Find the baby,

Grasp the star--

Heirs of all things

Near and far!


Short Christmas Poems: Christmas Bells

by Eugene Field

Why do the bells of Christmas ring?

Why do little children sing?

Once a lovely shining star,

Seen by shepherds from afar,

Gently moved until its light

Made a manger's cradle bright.

There a darling baby lay,

Pillowed soft upon the hay;

And its mother sung and smiled:

"This is Christ, the holy Child!"

Therefore bells for Christmas ring.

Therefore little children sing.

Here's an Idea for a FREE Christmas Gift!

Sometimes we don't know what to get our mom and dad, or other adult family members, for Christmas.

When we read about the man who wrote the poem 'T'was the Night Before Christmas' and gave it to his kids as a gift on Christmas Eve it gave us an idea!

We could copy down some Christmas poems on a nice sheet of paper, draw some pictures, put some stickers and decorations on it and put it in a nice envelope under the tree!

Viola! A thoughtful, free Christmas gift!
