Gather round the tree....

and sing songs of holiday joy.

Here is a song I wrote for my children when they were young.

What is the meaning of Christmas?
Is it holly boughs
And Mistletoe
And Christmas trees?
Is it pantomime
And magic shows
And stuff for free?
What is the meaning of Christmas
For you and me?

What is the meaning of Christmas?
Is it tinsel and turkey
And Christmas cards?
Is it stockings and presents
And Santa Claus?
What is the meaning of Christmas
To you and yours?

Christmas means something to everyone;
Christmas means sadness to some.
Christmas is happiness
And loneliness,
It is memories
And it’s the years to come.

Love is the meaning of Christmas,
Love is a friendly heart,
And children’s smiles,
Like candlelight.
Love is the reason
We are here tonight,
Love is all around
And can still be found
At Christmas time.

Nice Blog, I really like your blog. In Christmas holidays if you stay in Manor House then you must feel a different experience of this festival.
