Christmas Magic

From the kitchen table

Christmas Magic

Are we too grownup to feel a thrill
As we light the Christmas tree?
Are we immune to cookies,
Christmas cards and Christmas glee?
Are we too adult to "Ooh" and "Aah"
At the Christmas candle's glow?
Are we blasé about our gifts;
Do we shun the mistletoe?
Are we too mature for carols,
For merry or for jolly?
Do the decorations leave us cold,
The ornaments and holly?
Fat chance! We'll never grow too old
To love the Christmas magic.
A year without a Christmas
Would be boring, even tragic.
So bring it on! The candy canes,
The feasting and good cheer;
O Christmas, lovely Christmas,
You're the highlight of the year!

A lovely poem. Some years we do lose the magic and inspiration for Christmas don't we?
A cute teddy mug.
First, I couldn't believe my luck at winning the pink tea for one set from Tea Time and then when you won the teapot that is 'so you' I thought these were meant to be! Mine came by courier within a week but I haven't shown it on my blog yet. :-)

The little kitty on the kitchen table is so cute...and the poem says it all. Sadly this year I've lost the Christmas-y feeling but I know it will return.

Sending a hug your way from CO, Snap. I like the Christmas kitty.
