My Ideal Christmas?

This is a post that I originally published on the 4th December 2010. I am revisiting it because I still think the same as I did then.

 

Santa overwhelmed

 

 

 

 

 

 

An ideal Christmas – you have to be kidding!

I think it won’t happen – at least while I’m living.

When will we have peace and joy in our lives;

or a world without war, and where everyone strives

to understand one another, and tries their best

to make their religion mean something that’s blessed.

 

 

Guns for Xmas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What about the stores, with their Buy! Buy! Buy!

Will that ever stop so that we can see why

this special day originally came to be?

It’s the opposite of their greed and venality!

And when will families, parted all year,

come together again without anger or fear,

but instead will create a real celebration

of love and of sacrifice and deep contemplation?

 

 

Buy things with money don't have

 

 

 

 

 

 

My ideal Christmas has none of the hype,

but is based upon joy and on love of the type

that gives unto others and asks for no more

than to have all men equal, both the rich and the poor.

Of course, in this world, that’s all an illusion –

here, life is ruled by fear and confusion.

Selfish wants take the lead, and of love there’s a dearth;

Man doesn’t change because a child came to earth.

 

Santa stop the fighting

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, I’ll just take the presents, the food and the wine,

and shut out the world, so that all will be fine.

 

 

Christmas Celebration
