It’s not about eating candy canes,
Those were created to signify,
He who died.
It’s not about whose tree is prettiest,
They’re all wonderful,
Without a doubt,
But that’s not what,
The day is all about.
It’s not about a fancy feast,
You should be thinking rather of those,
Walking through your door,
For whom you cooked it for.
It’s not about the presents,
Yes the Wise Men gave,
To show their appreciation,
But this Santa thing has been blown,
Tremendously out of proportion.
It’s not about the lights,
Those too signify Christ,
And it really would not be a plight,
If you forgot to plug them in one night.
It’s not about the carols,
The day really will go on,
If you choose not to hear those songs.
It’s not about expensive ornaments,
They are simply,
It’s not about the stockings,
They solely arose from a legend,
At that First Christmas,
They were never even mentioned.
It’s not about the Elves,
They came about,
Just to fill,
Your entertainment center’s shelves.
Would not our ancestors,
At that First Christmas be surprised,
With the way the day,
Has been commercialized?
People need to think on,
How and why the Season came about,
Before they go ahead,
And pull their wallets out.
