Christmas is a Time - for Sharing
by Barbara Laughlin

 


Old stories passed down through the years

"what grandpa did one Christmas eve"

Had you laughing through your tears

 

Christmas is a time - for caring

About your family, neighbours and friends

Lending a hand to others in need

before the season ends

 

Christmas is a time - for giving

Presents that came from your heart

Watching the children, hearing their laughter

As the packages are torn apart

 

Christmas is a time - for peace

When soldiers lay aside their guns

And raise a glass to peace and good will

To every father and every son

 

Christmas is a time - for remembering

Family not with us on Christmas morn

And why people everywhere celebrate

The night our saviour was born
