The spirit of Christmas

I have always loved everything about Christmas and got that love and excitement from my mum who, sadly, is no longer alive. She was one of the kindest, sweetest people I ever knew and I try every day to live in a way she would be proud of. One of the reasons I love Christmas so much is because so many more people seem to live in a kindly ,supportive way during the season. However wouldn’t it be awesome if we lived that way all year round. I’m not perfect by any means, I know some days I can be short and impatient but I try and limit those days and practice kindness every time I can. Let’s take the spirit of Christmas and spread the message that it’s okay to live that way all year round. (Still trying to persuade my husband that it would be awesome to leave the Christmas decorations up all year long but think that’s something that will take a little longer, ha ha!)

 

What does Christmas mean to you

Is it all about presents and hullabaloo

Or is it more about kindness and love

Or magic intentions sent from above

 

For me it’s always been a magical time

But why only for the season, all year would be fine

If we spread Christmas kindness all year long

Wouldn’t our planet be better, be strong

 

When we’re buying our presents why not buy just one more

And think of a person who could find it by their door

The magic of receiving it could open their eyes

To someone who notices their laughs and their cries

 

Or why not reach out and see what they need

And show them that Christmas isn’t all about greed

There are a lot of good people who spend the season quite sad

And showing some kindness could help them feel glad

 

So spend some time thinking of something to do

And spread seasonal magic so more do so too

Then carry on doing the kind things all year

And spread Christmas magic and seasonal cheer

 

And maybe, just maybe, we’ll increase that same magic

All year, if we can and avoid something tragic

People will see kindness helps all year round

And maybe they’ll join in with the magic we’ve found

 

What does Christmas mean to you

Is it all about presents and hullabaloo

Or is it more about kindness and love

Lets spread magic intentions sent from above
