Christmas is more than sleigh bells ring.
Christmas is more than the carols we sing.
Christmas is a time for family and friends,
to celebrate and gather before the year ends.
A time for reflection at all the year has brought,
for those less fortunate to be in our thoughts.
A time to be thankful for the lives we are living,
for the love of our family and the gifts we are giving.
For though it is pleasant to receive a box tied with a bow, the most blessed gift of all is giving love to those we know.
So, here is my Christmas wish for all, both far and near, "May the precious gift of love, be yours, this and every year".
