The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
Embrace that Holiday Cheer
Everyone lives for that bright Christmas morning
When family convenes for festivities and cheer,
Exchanging presents and recipes with those gathered 'round them
And taking time to show love for all those they hold dear.
But what about the moments between?
Those days before the holiday bells ring,
Before stockings bursting with tiny tokens of affection
Are draped elegantly from each mantle and stair railing,
But after twinkling lights have been hung
And trees trimmed with care
Ornaments passed down through generations
Nestled twixt those of a modern flair,
When glittering garlands refract
Dancing orbs of red, white and green
And create prisms giving life
To magical worlds within their sheen.
When the icy winds howl
And flakes fall heavy outside,
But warmth fills your heart
From your preferred spot to hide.
Curled before a gently crackling fire,
Hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies sweetly
Warring warmly against the bite
Of the fresh evergreen that wafts discreetly.
Carols of chestnuts and marshmallow worlds
Dance deep within your soul,
Giving life to memories of tales
Of magical rabbits in hats and eyes of dusty coal.
Cozy blankets piled high upon your lap
Create the perfect stand for those well-loved pages
Of the book whose elegantly crafted tale
Pulls you back through the ages,
As attention flits between the daring adventures
And sweet romance which abound
Upon yellowed slices of the trees' greatest gift
And the magic all around.
It's in these perfect moments
Where peace and happiness resound
That the joy of the mystical Christmas season
Can truly be found.
