It’s one colourful time of the year;
City resounds with carols and cheer.
Surely people buy many new things
To place them under their Christmas trees.
They make exciting plans for each day
With dear ones who stay quite far away.
Kids stand in queue to meet Santa clause,
Longing to receive what he has got.
Table displays delicious food;
Everyone eats till they all feel good.
They see that they spend time together
And make the best of frosty winter.
Soon, holidays end; people get back
Start working on the files that are stacked.
Then life goes on like it was before
Till the next Christmas knocks on their door.
While repeating things every Christmas,
The true meaning of it is missed much.
Do we really know its real meaning?
Don’t we focus only on blessings?
Christmas—a time to give and receive,
To forgive those who cause us much grief,
For bitterness and anger to cease
To be sensitive to those in need.
It would be Christmas every other day
If to its meaning we abide and stay.
Have a meaningful Christmas!
