Christmas Now and Then

Today the kids want electronic games

Cell phone requests abound

Expensive clothes and pricey gear

The peace is never found


It seems these days we just spend

To have the perfect season

We’ll go in debt to get the things

But is that the proper reason


We need to take a look at what

Christmas really is

Family, sharing and lots of love

Friends and the birth of Jesus


What happened to the simpler times

When gifts were made with love

When a doll or truck was more than enough

Or a scarf, or a puzzle or gloves


Candles placed upon the tree

Lit with a magical glow

Childrens’ eyes shone just as bright

In the Christmases long long ago

So true how many families will go in debt to have the perfect Christmas.
