'Twas the Day after Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house
Visitors were slouching on the couch.
There were leftovers and bottles of drinks,
And don't forget the lingering food stink.

Wrappings and toys on the ground;
It was a mess to be abound.
Children were busy at play
And they were gazing at the Nativity lined with hay.

"Goodbye!" countless people screamed
While the gift cards has yet to be redeemed.
"This was the best Christmas ever!" exclaimed Johnny,
Still gazing at countless holly.

Now they'd have to prepare for New Year's
And clank glasses in cheers.
Ma and Pa were contemplating their credit
They couldn't even believe it was legit!

"Now, clean up, children!" they shouted
The children wouldn't budge; they pouted.
Eventually they did clean up
And were rewarded with a hot cocoa cup.

The parents were still thinking of their excessive debt
Heck, for that amount they could buy a jet!
Pa awoke in a cold sweat
And realized they'd forever be in debt.

Maybe Santa was in debt too
He'd have to deal with it through and through!
Did he have any money, any ways to pay it off?
Or would he worry with a frightening cough?

The rest could not wait for New Year's
While still in deep arrears!
"Twelve o'clock we'll stay up!" Johnny exclaimed.
Fun and partying would be reclaimed!

And that Christmas may have well been the most exciting
Minus the whining, the biting, and the fighting!
Perhaps next time may have more surprises;
A masquerade of disguises!

A late Merry Christmas some long-distance relatives sent.
On them still remained the stinking food scent!
The greetings all said while Christmas grew out of sight,
"Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good day AND night!"

Christmas Poems

Christmas is nearly upon us

"Christmas is the time of year to reflect with thoughtful prayer,....
to cast aside of all bad thought and habits you expressed throughout the year.
We can all join together to celebrate jesus birth,....a renewal and beginning right here on planet earth.

Jesus left all of us a messagage while here on earth,to love,to care.
his words were ever simple,plain and so very,very clear:
"Be kind to one another throughout the coming year".

Christmas is the time of year to spend with the young and old, the needy, greedy and the poor.a time to love,a time to share.
let us all spread our love around with all our heart and soul,....
for the love of your neighbor should never turn so cold.

Songs of Christmas carols fill the nightime air, and friends
gather round the fireplace drinking egg nog and cider without a worry
or a care,.... a time to love, a time to share.
Chestnuts roasting on the stove, mistletoe strung over every door.
the noisy sounds of slay are so difficult to ignore,....ringing out so
loudly,they spread vibrations throughout the creaking floor."

Attending morning service in our house of worse-ship, singing hymns
and prayers of thanks, children in nearby parks and playgrounds
play games and harmless pranks.Turkey cooking in the oven,children
playing with their new found toys,.....what a thrill and pleasure to
see all the happy and smiling faces on all the little girls and boys."

Here comes Santa on Christmas Eve

"Here comes Christmas it's that time of time of year for Santa to appear.

snow is falling on the ground,.....everywhere you look snowflakes
can be found.children wearing mittens in the snow,.....making snow balls they intend to throw.
jingle bells a ringing, jing-a-ling,the sounds of Christmas echos
ring. parents and children skate on the lake,.....the children
home for holiday break.

Children dream of Santa Clause, parents shop without a pause.
the days are bright, the nights so clear,....the love and spirit of Christmas permeates throughout the wintery air.

Christmas carols sung at night,....under a dancing moon that glows
so bright.chestnuts roasting, grownups toasting this special time of
year,.....after a nip or two, all our woe's and troubles seem to disappear.

here comes santa it's Christmas Eve,....he's finally here it's hard
to believe.santa and his reindeers are now flying high,....their
lonely silouhetes dot the blackboard sky.

Empty stockings line the living room wall, hung for boys and girls
who have images of santa's gifts racing through their minds,....
all in hope that they will find,.....their stockings filled to the
very top with toys and presents of every kind."

It’s Christmas in New York City, come and experience
the sights, lights and sounds so pretty
That comprises the rhythm,beat and excitement of our
great big wonderful city.

It’s Christmas in New York City, now adorned in her Most glorious dress,
as church elders prepare the nativity scene and the Baby Jesus crèche.

Christmas trees displayed all over town adorned and decorated in
Gaily colored lights,bells,reefs and tinsel that glows and twinkle in anticipation of Kris Kringle

Sparkling brightly Day and night…boy oh boy what a magnificent sight.

Christmas tree stands gleaming bright and tall in department stores, promenades,plazas,malls, lawns, and homes.
In department stores all over town Santa is busy making his list for all the girls and boys presents and Christmas toys.

Saint Nick extends his warmest Christmas wishes to all who visit or call,
“Merry, Merry Christmas to one and all”… Here’s hoping, that on Christmas Day snow will fall.

Merry, Merry Christmas! For, it’s Christmas in New York City.

I walk the wicked winter wind

I walk the wicked winter wind
That dances up like nightlife
And almost am turned as snow is
To hibernate
Just one last time within your arms.

A Christmas Limerick

There once was a boy of Ole,
Who was mean, dirty and often stole.
But one day he was caught
And for Christmas he got naught
But an empty stocking full of coal.

A Dream of Christmas

I had kindled the hearth to warm my toes and started some Hickory brew
To heat up my insides as well, as another December day was through.
And breathing in that wholesome scent, I closed my worn eyes tight
Resolved that I might dream a bit that cold and snowy night.
In the almost formless shadows, the quiet cabin came alive.
Whispering messengers delivered me gifts as the clock struck Ten-and-Five:
The crackle of the fire, the creaking of the floor,
The childlike wintry whining of the wind beneath the door.
Like an echo ever-coming, sounds bounced from every cob:
From the eaves to the boards to my ivory doorknob.
And then in fright and worry I spun around in place
And there before my ornate mantle crept the shadow of a face.
The shadow bore a beard that stretched almost from sight.
It flickered and it quivered in the muted candlelight.
It seemed to hold immense respect for whom it reflect
And in that moment it was enough just to stay circumspect.
But as my nerves were calming enough to clearly think
The most surprising, brilliant light forced my eyes to blink.
There when I reopened them in beauty that made me gape
Were glistening elven sprites about and Santa donned in velvet cape.
Lo! It was the grandest thing to watch that cheerful pack
Race to lace the finest ruby ribbons round my tree and back.
From Santa's sleeves red ringing bells shot out like from a gun
Followed by green garlands and globes that filled the room as he spun.
Betwixt this glorious tumult open flew my shutter doors,
A gusty wind freezing cold the candles to their cores.
Gone was all illumination, in black the chamber stood.
I heard but recapitulation of the horn owl in the wood.
Then again the hearth flames livened allowing me to see -
No Christmas bells rang anywhere; no ribbons wrapped my tree.
My visit from Santa Claus had been but reverie.
So with a smile I lay me down to again with Santa be.

The Wreath is on the Door

The wreath is on the door
And the snow is on the tree
God has laid His holy hands
On all that we can see.
Be quick to raise your voice
And praise what He has brought.
Keep now His love in every choice
And Christmas in every thought.

A Winter Limerick

There once was a man made of snow,
Who grew happy and bigger whene'er the wind would blow.
But some kids playing a trick
Gave him a candle and a wick
And soon he was only H2O.

Famous Christmas Poems

Christmas Joys

Evergreen boughs that fill our homes
With fragrant Christmas scents,
Hearts filled with the loving glow
That Christmas represents;

Christmas cookies, turkeys stuffed,
Festive holly berry,
Little faces bright with joy,
Loved ones being merry;

Parties, songs, beribboned gifts,
Silver bells that tinkle,
Christmas trees and ornaments,
Colorful lights that twinkle;

Relatives waiting with open arms
To smile and hug and kiss us;
These are some of the special joys
That come along with Christmas.

By Joanna Fuchs

Christmas Fun

The tempting gifts are tantalizing;
About opening them, we are fantasizing.
The holiday foods are appetizing;
Our excitement and joy are growing and rising;
Our hearts and minds are harmonizing;
Jolly Christmas fun we're maximizing!

By Joanna Fuchs

Christmas Magic

Are we too grownup to feel a thrill
As we light the Christmas tree?
Are we immune to cookies,
Christmas cards and Christmas glee?

Are we too adult to "Ooh" and "Aah"
At the Christmas candle's glow?
Are we blasé about our gifts;
Do we shun the mistletoe?

Are we too mature for carols,
For merry or for jolly?
Do the decorations leave us cold,
The ornaments and holly?

Fat chance! We'll never grow too old
To love the Christmas magic.
A year without a Christmas
Would be boring, even tragic.

So bring it on! The candy canes,
The feasting and good cheer;
O Christmas, lovely Christmas,
You're the highlight of the year!

By Joanna Fuchs

A Sunny Christmas

Every year at Christmas time
There's not a sign of snow.
Instead we spend our yuletide days
In the sun's warm cheery glow.

We have the best of Christmas things,
The lights, the gifts, the bells,
(And "snowbirds" who arrive en masse
To fill our beach hotels.)

The glorious weather fits right in
With our happy Christmas mood,
And we can also walk and run
Without having to be snowshoed.

So don't feel bad for your (location) friends
Who have no snow or ice.
We think our sunny Christmas here
Is a holiday paradise!

By Joanna Fuchs

A Merry Christmas Wish for You

While you enjoy the gifts,
food, sparkle of ornaments and lights,
feasting on favorite foods,
I wish this Christmas
would envelop you
in the special warmth
and rich contentment
the season brings.

I wish friends, family,
all those who love you
let you know how much they care,
so that you feel happily wrapped
in their affection.

I wish this Christmas
would be one you never forget,
a shining beacon in your memory
to light all of your days.

By Joanna Fuchs

Year-Round Joy

Christmas is full of shiny things
That sparkle, gleam and glow;
These holiday pleasures dazzle us,
And yet, deep down, we know...

That Christmas has its special gifts,
But our year-round joy depends
On the cherished people in our lives,
Our family and our friends.
