The ABC's of Christmas

A is for Angels
With halos so bright
Whose carols were heard
On that first Christmas Night.

B is for Bells
So merrily ringing
Joy to the world
Is the message they're bringing.

C is for Candles
That so brightly shine
To give a warm welcome
To your friends and mine.

D is for Doorway
With garlands of green
To make Christmas merry
As far as they're seen.

E is for Evergreens
With fragrance so rare
So plentiful at Christmas
Their scent fills the air.

F is for Fun
The whole season long
From trimming the tree
To singing a song.

G is for Greetings
A merry "hello"
With a heart full of love
For people we know.

H is for Holly
With berries so red
To make into wreaths
To hang overhead.

I is for Ice
On snow covered hills
Where sledding is fun
Along with the spills.

J is for Jesus
The Christ child so dear
We honor his birth
On Christmas each year.

K is for Kris Kringle
So merrily he stands
He is who they call Santa
In so many lands.

L is for Lanterns
I am sure that their light
Helped Mary and Joseph
That first Christmas Night.

M is for Mary
Her heart full of love
For her little son Jesus
Who came from above.

N is for Noel
The angels did sing
To herald the birth
of Jesus, our King.

O is for Ornaments
So shining and bright
With lights on the tree
To sparkle at night.

P is for Packages
With ribbons so gay
All 'round the tree
For our Christmas Day.

Q is for Quiet
Christmas Eve Night
With snow covered hills
Glistening so bright.

R is for Reindeer
Who pull Santa's sleigh
To your house, to my house
They know the way.

S is for Shepherds
Who first saw the star
Over Bethlehem's manger
And followed it far.

T is for Trees
We decorate so gay
Then wait for ole Santa
To hurry our way.

U is for Universe
Where Christmas brings joy
To all in the world
To each girl and each boy.

V is for Visiting
Friends near and far
We travel by plane
Or by bus, or by car.

W is for Wise Men
Who brought gifts so rare
And knelt down and worshiped
The child they found there.

X is for X-mas
Or Christmas by full name
No matter the language
It all means the same.

Y is for Yule Logs
Whose bright sparks fly high
To give a warm welcome
To friends passing by.

Z is for Zeal
We show at this time
In giving to others
And loving mankind.

Caleb came home yesterday with a Christmas book where each letter of Christmas stood for something, this reminded me of that!
