Snow is falling
Friends are calling
It's that joyful time of year
Sleigh bells ringing
Choirs singing
Christmastime is here

Candles glowing
Cold winds blowing
Sipping cocoa by the fire
Colored lights twinkling
Ho, Hos and Kris Kringling
Hoping for your heart's desire

Children skating
Shoppers debating
Looking for that perfect gift
Snowflakes flurrying
People hurrying
Cars getting stuck in the drift

Snowball throwing
Santa's list growing
Gifts hidden in a secret place
Goodies baking
Special treats making
Frosted windows looking like lace

It's a cold December
And we remember
The story of the Christ child's birth
Telling the story
Of His wondrous glory
Celebrated all 'round the Earth

'Tis the season
Knowing the reason
Brings a joyous reverie
Families together
Friendships forever
Just the way it was meant it to be
