Christmas Greetings by Michael O’Callaghan
Christmas Greetings to you
Christmas is such a magical time
For families and children
It is truly an awesome, wondrous time for juniors
With their young minds full of expectation
Because it’s Santa time.
They have seen all the ads on TV and newspapers
Their letters have been written
The sleeps are being counted
The elves are watching closely
Extra food and treats are being purchased
Presents are bought and wrapped
Christmas cards are written, and posted
Yes, it’s Christmas time alright
The magic is in the air
But its not just all about presents or Christmas cards and treats
Its magical because of all the love shown at this time of year
Our love for each member of our own family
Love for our neighbours and friends
We are all more helpful around the house
Our communications and greetings are courteous and friendly
Co-operation, understanding, and helping are the guiding forces
In all our daily dealings with those around us.
We make a huge effort to love all the deprived people in our area,
By giving more generously to charities at this time of year
Our collective gifts will help people in need.
Most houses put up a Christmas tree
Decorated with lights, santas, and baubles
On top we place a star
To represent the star of Bethlehem
To guide us on our way to Christmas
All these gestures and adornments bring cheer to our lives
But, beyond the decorations we can all be true Santas during this festive time
When we can help to make sure
That no families will be hungry
Or that no child will be without toys this Christmas.
By giving to charities who help them.
I hope our Christmas tree star
Will be a beacon of light, hope and joy for all of us,
But especially for all deprived people in our communities.
When we share, care, and donate we enjoy that special feel-good factor
Have a lovely, peaceful, Covid free, happy, healthy Christmas and New Year
Go raibh rath Dé agus síocháin oraibh um Nollaig agus san Athbhliain
