CHRISTMAS IS WHAT
YOU MAKE IT
(By Theresa Myers Skinner)
Christmas comes just once a year,
It is a time for cheerful giving.
Be it gifts very rare,
Just a smile makes life worth living
It isn’t the gift that you receive
But the thought of the one who
It isn’t the price, as you believe,
It’s the spirit in how you take it.
If >^>u give, be sure you give
With cheerful joy, and mean it.
Bringing you joy each day you live,
For Christmas is what you make it.
