Christmas is all about sharing love with your loved ones.
That’s why I am taking the time to share love with you and I hope to get some love back
I am hoping for snow this Christmas so we can spend the day
cuddled inside with mugs of hot cocoa and love in our hearts.
Don’t forget to bring the marshmallows.
Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred,
and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit,
become a child again at Christmas-time
Christmas is not a time nor a season,
but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill,
to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas
May this Christmas end the present year
on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh
and bright new year.
Here’s wishing you a Merry Christmas
