The arrival of Christmas
Is like a new dawn,
Remembering the time
When Jesus was born.

The magic it holds
Brings a song to the heart,
It's the time of the year
To make a new start.

Snowflakes are drifting
On a light breeze.
Tinsel and baubles
Adorning the trees.
Brightly wrapped presents
Piled in the hall,
Children all waiting
For Santa to call.

Ringing of sleigh bells
As day turns to night
While carols are sung
In the soft candlelight.

Families are happy
Just being together,
Leaving sweet memories
Lasting forever.

May the spirit of Christmas
Bring blessings to you;
Renewing your hope,
Making wishes come true.
