Tis the season to be merry, a time to rest and travel,
For the days left in the year will be spent with family and friends,
In joyous celebration, loud chatter and a timeless setting,
With abundant food, flowing drinks and endless stories.
A ritual for many and a necessity for man, time away is time treasured,
After 12months of work, 340days of toil, a time to reflect is here,
A time to reward self is now, with long nights, late mornings, without care for time,
Dwelling in the presence of family warmth and banter.
Beyond the norms, a bigger reason exists to celebrate,
Lest we forget the birthday of the one who brought salvation,
A God turned human, born into the world as a meek baby,
Our salvation, destined centuries ago in this very month.
Our fate was sealed, our life renewed according to His Father’ Will,
The day He humbled himself into a man, to live among us,
Joy and pain he felt, as He lived purposefully, spreading the gospel,
To all who listened and all who rejected Him.
In this very month, chance was born, salvation was promised,
To all who accepted Him as the true king, for their sins were wiped clean,
A new life, on a clean slate, for He bore the brunt on the wooden cross,
There is more to Christmas than parties, holidays and bonuses,
Let’s celebrate Jesus, let’s celebrate salvation, let’s appreciate life.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY
P/S:- Though the actual date of Christ’s birth is not known, we appreciate that His birth set off a chain of events that led to Him dying for us.
