The Meaning of Christmas

I was going to do a long post about the meaning of Christmas and how it become commercialized etc… Before I could do this my 13 year old baby girl Mya summed it up very well in this poem she wrote.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

God Bless, Tim Marks


“The Meaning of Christmas”

Oh joy it’s Christmas again!
Oh boy what will I get?
But that’s not the meaning of Christmas is it?
No no! Christmas is Christ’s birth, He was born to save the earth!
Now now, don’t you see?

The meaning of Christmas is not a tree, or Santa Claus, or dolls that you
No! No! It’s about a Holy Boy,
Who was born in a manger
And to the world He was a stranger!
Now please remember what I’ve told you,
And keep it in your mind!
~Mya Marks~
