Christmas card verses

Gin-gle bells
Gin-gle bells
Gin-gle all the way
Oh what fun it is to drink
On a festive holiday.
Christmas time is oh so near
Children so excited you can hear them cheer
Enthusiasm and excitement fill the air
And people show love in how they care.
Take the time to enjoy the season
And be thankful for the reason.

Catherine Pulisfer
This Christmas,
may you have the fulfillment
of seeing around you
the people you love the most.
May you have the satisfaction
of creating special memories
they will remember with pleasure forever.
This Christmas,
may you feel peaceful and contented,
knowing what Christmas means,
and celebrating it your way.

love to watch my Christmas tree,
It blinks and sparkles bright.
So many colours of Christmas time,
It sure is a Christmas delight.

Julie Hebert
Christmas is forever,
Not for just one day.
For loving, sharing, giving,
Are not to put away.
Like bells and lights and tinsel,
in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others,
Is good you do yourself.

Norman W. Brooks
I've been waiting for Christmas
I've been waiting for Christmas
Santa's getting near.
Can't you hear the sleigh bells ringing?
Reindeer up so high
Can't you hear the children singing
As they watch the sky.

Annon
There’s More to Christmas
There’s more, much more to Christmas
Than candle-light and cheer;
It’s the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year;
It’s thoughtfulness and kindness,
It’s hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding
And for goodwill to men!

Annon

Christmas waves a magic wand over the world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

Norman Vincent Peale.
