Remember back to the time when life was simpler. A time when the gentleness of the season inspired everyone around you to cry out "Merry Christmas" and know those words were heart-felt. To have an old-fashioned Christmas with no worries or cares except to know that the Christ child was born for you, and this is why you share.

Christmas is a magic time
when all the world is bright;
it finds a place within our hearts
and fills us with delight.

The world is much more beautiful,
a richer, softer glow.
It seems that God is reaching down
to touch each soul below.

Christmas is a happiness,
A day of hope and peace,
When everyone is kind and good
and worries seem to cease.

A time of love and blessedness,
Rememberance fond and dear,
A childlike faith is ours again
This precious once a year.

Let us keep Christmas beautiful
Without a thought of greed,
That it might live forevermore
To fill our every need,

That it shall not be just a day,
But last a lifetime through,
The miracle of Christmastime
That brings God close to you.
