**It's Christmas Time...Again**





It's Christmas Time





Put your problems on probation

Run your troubles off the track,

Throw your worries out the window

Get the monkeys off your back.

Silence all your inner critics

With your conscience make amends,

And allow yourself some happiness

It's Christmas time again!



Call a truce with those who bother you

Let all the fighting cease,

Give your… Continue

*The Christmas Fairy*



THE CHRISTMAS FAIRY OF STRASBURG

A GERMAN FOLK-TALE


ONCE, long ago, there lived near the ancient city of Strasburg, on the river Rhine, a young and handsome count, whose name was Otto. As the years flew by he remained unwed, and never so much as cast a glance at the fair maidens of the country round; for this reason people began to call him "Stone-Heart."



It chanced that Count Otto, on one Christmas Eve, ordered that… Continue

*My Doves*

MY DOVES



OPPOSITE my chamber window,

On the sunny roof, at play,

High above the city's tumult,

Flocks of doves sit day by day.

Shining necks and snowy bosoms,

Little rosy, tripping feet,

Twinkling eyes and fluttering wings,

Cooing voices, low and sweet,--



Graceful games and friendly meetings,

Do I daily watch and see.

For these happy little neighbors

Always seem at peace to… Continue

*Mistletoe Magic*

Mistletoe Magic



From the earliest times mistletoe has been one of the most magical, mysterious, and sacred plants of European folklore. It was considered to bestow life and fertility; a protection against poison; and an aphrodisiac. The mistletoe of the sacred oak was especially sacred to the ancient Celtic Druids.

As we were looking over the menu, one of my friends noticed they had both a chicken salad and a chicken sandwich as a special. This particular little cafe, leaves an order pad with the menus and you write out your order. We each wrote out our orders...my friend 'absentmindedly' wrote out 'chicken sandwich' on the order slip, while we were visiting. When a while… Continue

*A Star Within*

Christmas is not a time or a season, but a state of mind.

To cherish peace and good will, to be plenteous in mercy,

is to have the real spirit of Christmas.



If we think over these things, there will be born in us a saviour.

A Star in our hearts, shining forth, sending its gleam

of hope, peace and love out to the world.

*A Politically Correct Christmas Story*



A Politically Correct Christmas Story



'Twas the night before Christmas and Santa's a wreck...

How to live in a world that's politically correct?

His workers no longer would answer to "Elves".

"Vertically Challenged" they were calling themselves.

And labour conditions at the North Pole

were alleged by the union to stifle the soul.



Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety,

*My Grinchy Moments*



“All the Whos down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot,



but the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville, did not.



The Grinch hated Christmas – the whole Christmas season.



Oh, please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason.



It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.



Or maybe his head wasn’t screwed on just right.



But I think that the best reason of…

"I went there of my own free will.

I went there in my finest gown,

With my rarest Jewels

With my Queen of Heaven crown.

In the Underworld

At each of the Seven Gates

I was stripped Seven times

Of all I thought I was

Till I stood bare in who I really am."



"I stay here of my own free will.

My skin my finest gown,

With my precious jewel of love.

With my Queen of heart crown.

*The Fireplace*

THE FIREPLACE

by Anne R. C. Neale



I see the glow of the yellow and red flames

As the fire burns so bright,

It brings an inner warmth inside of me

As I sit there by its light,



The fireplace is so awesome,

As the wood begins to glow,

While outside in the yard you see

Is hail and sleet and snow.



The fire crackles and hisses

As the flames burst way up high.

A screen is in front… Continue
