Christmas Day

Sitting in front of the fire

We can not tire

The presents piled under the tree

We feel free

No television to ruin our day

Welcome to Christmas Day

We laugh and share

Talk about how we care

Gotta love your friends and family

While standing next to the Christmas tree

Doling out presents

Screaming at the contents

The one day

Life’s problems go away

Sharing our love

Sharing our joy

We put each other above

To look at the toys

Fire crackling merrily

People laughing joyfully

I feel most at home

On Christmas Day

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I love this poem. It shows the real reason people should love Christmas Day. And yes, I celebrate Christmas even though I'm pagan. It's a day to celebrate family for me.
