I love to write poetry, so I’ve decided to share my poetry on my blog occasionally. This poem accompanies Santa’s Birthday Gift, for I believe that Santa is the Spirit of Christmas:
The Spirit of Christmas
Santa’s the spirit of Christmas,
The longing to give in your heart,
The wanting to make others happy,
As God gave us Love at the start.
For God’s Love was born at Christmas,
All wrapped in a small holy Boy.
So we want to give on His birthday,
To share all our love and our joy.
You’re never too old to love Santa,
Just open your heart and believe…
That Santa brings gifts for Christ’s birthday,
And it’s better to give than receive.
