Christmas Poems



Carols and candles aglow in the night,

Hearth fires blazing all cozy and bright,

Red-leaved poinsettia, white Christmas rose,

Ice skaters whirling on ice as it snows,

Sleigh bells and Santa's,

Tinsel-trimmed trees,

Mistletoe magic and warm memories,

Angels all bringing glad tidings anew,

Season's best wishes especially for you!


Merry Christmas Mom


For all of the presents
You put under the tree,
For all of the times
You picked up after me...

For all of the times
That you tucked me in tight
And we stayed up to talk
Long into the night

For all of the days
I was feeling so down
And the times that you turned
To a smile my frown

For the cookies you baked
And the stockings you stuffed,
For the cuts that you healed
And the pillows you fluffed...

For the time that you took
Off the training wheels
For the nights that you made me
My favorite meals

For the years throughout
Elementary school
For knowing the right thing
Isn't always what's cool

For putting up with
Those preteen years
For making it through
All the laughs and the tears

For all of the days
That you loved me so much
Even during the times
That I made it so tough...

For all of the memories
We have already shared
For the future for which
We cannot be prepared

For being there for that one-year-old boy
Who sat in the house and sucked on his thumb
For working so hard at being his mom
And making that boy into the man I've become
Look back on all that we have been through
And look at me now mom, how far I have come

For all of the times I'll never forget
Merry Christmas to you Mom
Here's to the memories
We haven't had yet

Merry Christmas...Love, Nick

Christmas Poems Mama's Christmas Miracle


Mama told me a story a long long time ago not like any that I'd ever heard,
all about a little girl mama used to know, how I remember every word.
Seems like a lifetime ago, though I remember it so well,
it was a Christmas eve I'll never forget as far as I can tell.
We were sitting at the kitchen table, it was only my mother and me,
I was dreaming of Christmas morning and all the presents under the tree.
Dad wasn't doing that well and money was scarce that year,
Mama found a way of telling me without me shedding one tear.
She told me a story of a little girl and a Christmas long ago,
who came from far away, a place where it rarely snowed.
Santa was just a dream to her, but she believed so much inside,
that Christmas was going to be special, so she knelt by her bed and she cried.
"Lord let Santa remember me if not just this one time, I promise I won't ask for much, maybe a dolly I can call all mine."
She closed her prayer and thanked the Lord for all that she received,
she knew that Santa would really come if only she believed.
She wrote a letter to Santa unfamiliar to most girls and boys,
Though her list was long and full, on it there were no toys.
Only things we take for granted, like new shoes or underpants,
hair bows for her sisters and gloves to warm her brother's hands.
At the bottom of her list she asked if it not be to much, for a brand new baby doll she could hold and love and touch.
Then Christmas morning came and she looked beneath her tree,
Not a present to be found as far as she could see.
She didn't give up hope as she heard a knocking sound,
When she opened up her door a great big box she found.
She called out to her mother and dad, brothers and sisters too,
She said "my prayers were answered, there's something in here for all of you."
Her daddy got brand new boots, her mother new underpants, her sisters got beautiful hair bows, her brothers warm gloves for their hands.
Buried deep beneath the box was a brand new baby doll and a note that said Merry Christmas I love you one and all.
I'll never forget that story because much to my surprise,
I saw the true meaning of Christmas shining in my mother's eyes.
For those of you who are wondering, as if you didn't know,
The little girl in Mama's story was my mother long ago.

This poem is about a childhood memory I will never forget. God bless all the mothers in this world and may all your Christmases be ones to remember.

Christmas Now And Then

Well it is December and Christmas is almost here
Another happy Christmas for family and good cheer
There will be tables loaded with turkeys, hams and sweets
We know there will be more than we could ever eat

There will be a big tree shining so bright
With beautiful decorations and pretty shiny lights
Under that tree there will be present galore
So many you would wonder how there could be anything left in the store

Christmas now is really so much fun
But gosh there is just too much for everyone
My thoughts go back to a cold Christmas long ago
To a family not blessed with riches and gold

Our little tree was kind of skimpy, with some ribbons and a few shiny balls
But to us it stood magnificent, the greatest of them all
Under that tree was a present for Raye, a present for Sister and a present for me
And we could hardly wait as we would open them with glee

There was not a lot of fancy food on that table, times were kind of tough
But we were all happy and for us it was enough
We were so thankful as we thanked the Lord above
We knew what we had was paid for with Daddy's hard work and Mama's love

I'm thankful that we now have so much and our blessings are many
And it is good to live in this great land of plenty
But I would gladly give every material thing that I own
To have one more Christmas with Mama and Daddy and my two sisters at home

Merry Christmas Poem Dear Santa

Dear Santa

For Christmas this year I would most love to see
Two plane tickets to Arizona placed under my tree.

You see my Aunt had a baby and my Nannie's real ill
I haven't the money to send both my sister and I, unless you will.

You can send us the cash, you can take us yourself
We can even fly there with your most responsible elf.

Oh please Santa, get us both there somehow.
We could wait until later, but it's best to go now.

Nannies going through surgery, we're not sure if she'll live,
And well, where this is the season for everyone to give,

I only want to see her, yes, this is all I ask.
Is my Christmas wish such a difficult task?

When you get this and read it, think it over a time or two.
I know this is a hard decision, but I'm positive you've had a few.

Even if one ticket is all you can give,
Don't worry.
I'll send my sister and pray that dear Nannie will live.

I'm sorry I've been bad, next year I'll try to be better.
You have a big job, so I oughta end this letter.
Have a Merry Christmas Santa, tell the elves and Mrs. Clause I said hi.
Thank you for your time Sir, now I must say good bye.

P.S. The milk is in a glass and the cookies on a tray.
You know where I live, so nothing more shall I say.

Christmas

'Tis the time to hug,
And stay warm and snug.
Time to ice skate over the frozen lake,
And for the sugar cookies to bake.
It is Christmas,
Occasional fog or mist.
Children get snow days,
And go out to play on sleighs.
On Christmas day it is fun,
There are just clouds and no sun.
You open your presents,
Which your family sent.
The kids just rip the wrapping,
And can't stop laughing.
Kids get toys,
Specially made for girls or boys.
Teens get phones and games,
And call their siblings lame.
The kids go out to make angels in the snow,
Running through the cold air that blows.
No one wants the day to end,
So some decide to share gifts or lend.
The families take off their bootlaces,
And get warm by the fireplace.
Christmas is when your family comes,
And when they all love.
Christmas Time

In the distance, quite afar
I see the bright shining star
Although it's quite far away
It begins the story of this special day
Long ago, out of danger
Jesus lay in the manger
As shepherds watched their sheep at night
They suddenly saw the twinkling light
Which guided them all the way
To see the baby in the hay
The kings who also saw the light
Came riding through the cold snowy night
And even though they were quite old
They bought him lots and lots of gold
However, all around the earth
We all forget the special birth
Christmas is now much more fun
Now all the traditions have begun
Snowball fights with our friends
Playing all day till it ends
Dancing round the cozy fire
Listening to the sweet singing choir
There is of course one serious matter
Christmas time just makes you fatter
Eating lots of food at dinner
That won't make you any thinner
Putting up the Christmas lights
Brightens up the dark cold nights
Hanging decorations on the tree
Makes people happy and full of glee
And then we get to Christmas Eve
Where Santa's packed and ready to leave
The jolly man all in red
Expects you to be asleep in bed
With a sprinkle of magic and a wave of goodbye
Santa's reindeer fly high in the sky
Dashing through the snowy night
Santa's now out of sight
Now on the roofs Santa's slowing
But Rudolph's nose is still glowing
Climbing out the loaded sleigh
He eats your cookies off a tray
As you're asleep he creeps around
Trying not to make a sound
He leaves the presents piled high
Then flies back through the wintry sky
I love Christmas
It's so much fun
It's a happy time for everyone

Christmas Sensations

Christmas lights twinkle and shine as bright
as the stars in the sky on a cold, clear night.
The fresh blanket of fallen snow,
it looks so pretty on the tree boughs.
People bundled up so warm, rushing to and fro,
don't forget the mistletoe!

Child laughter, building snowmen, sled riding or ice skating,
they are all patiently waiting.
Quiet whispers and footsteps creeping,
very soon you'll hear paper crinkling.
Keeping beat with the Christmas season are bells ringing,
the rhythm and rhyme come from the carolers singing.

The turkey is stuffed and ready for roasting,
the bread has risen and ready for toasting.
The soft glow of a cinnamon scented candle is fine,
the Christmas tree that smells like pine.
Pumpkin pie, apple pie and all the cookies you can eat,
a cup of cocoa and a candy cane sure are sweet.

Most important is family, friends and lots of caring,
cuddles, kisses and hugs for sharing.
Grab your slippers and a cozy robe and come sit by the fire,
hurry along before Grammy retires.
Let me read you a story and you stay awhile,
your children and their children all smile!


MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
from Glenn and Arlene
The Robin

In the silence of the moonlight,
The ghostly, mysterious moonlight,
The robin passes by.

As mortals sleep,
And angels peep,
The robin looks on sharply.

But in a flicker of magic,
with a jingle of sleigh bells,
Something appears by the moon.

The bird's eyes widen,
Could it be him?
Could it be true?

His christmassy heart started beating against his red breast,
For it had to be true,
The shadow had to be him!

As pearl-white snow drifted effortlessly,
And lay on the pine trees,
The little robin felt so much hope the bells of heaven started to ring!

For he knew,
Baby Jesus knew,
The figure of Christmas cheer was......

I woke up,
The ground was filled with Jack Frost's magic,
The ponds trapped in ice,
My stocking, full.

looking closely,
Past The Snowman's Ball,
Past the pine trees; snowy, cold, festive,
I saw the robin.

The robin whose hope had brought the snow,
The robin whose hope had brought great cheer,
For on Christmas eve, a dream or not, had seen the magical figure,
And brought great hope to all.......

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!

By Joanna Fuchs

The Best Gift

As Christmas time arrives,
 We think of you and smile;
 Your friendship is the gift
We think most worthwhile.

Underneath the tree,
But what we value most
 Is your ability

To bring joy to our lives
 In everything you do,
Enriching time together
 Just by being you.

Christmas Love

At Christmastime I think of all the gifts
 That bring me great delight and sweet surprise,
 But nothing in this world can bring such joy
 As you do, when you look into my eyes.

And when I contemplate what Christmas means,
 The caring and the giving--I confess,
You've given me the things I want the most:
Your love, your touch, your kiss, your warm caress.

The Christmas tree reminds me, with its lights
 That just the thought of you sets me aglow;
 You light me up from deep within my heart,
 Because I cherish you, and love you so.

With you it's Christmas all the time, sweetheart.
 I treasure every hour and every minute.
 Your love is all I'll ever want because,
 My life is so fulfilling with you in it.

Be My Christmas Gift

If you sat beneath the Christmas tree,
You’d sure add to the décor,
But even if you were gift wrapped, dear,
 I couldn't love you more.

You have to know that if I had you,
I’d have the gift I’d most adore,
 Better than any expensive gift
 I could purchase in a store.

If you hug me tight, you wonderful thing,
And be my Christmas gift,
You’ll brighten my days forevermore
And give my heart a lift.

By Karl Fuchs

Here's a Christmas love poem from husband to wife, a romantic Christmas poem sure to please.

The Most Wonderful Gift

The most wonderful gift ever given to me
 Isn't one to be found by a Christmas tree.
 It's you, my treasure, my wonderful wife,
The most beautiful, glorious thing in my life.

You are caring and warm, in truth, a delight,
 A most wonderful prize whose love still shines bright.
 I shudder to think how bare life would be,
If the gift of your love weren't given to me.

You are Christmas delights all wrapped into one,
 And those joys still go on when Christmas is done!

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs

Christmas Time Together

For most, this time of year
 Is ornaments, lights and gifts.
 People are out to shop,
Though snow may mass in drifts.

For me this time is different
 From what others feel and see;
 For me it's just more happiness
 Full of you and me.

You fill my life with joy
Each moment that we share.
I'm thankful for time with you;
 Nothing can compare.

I want to make life good for you
 In every way I can.
You’ve been my own true love
 Since our relationship began.

So I’m writing you this poem
To help you to feel my love;
 We can be this way forever,
 With help from up above.

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs

Funny Christmas Poems

This family Christmas poem is a funny Christmas rhyme that could be a Christmas poem for a child or kid. A Christmas fantasy is described in this humorous Christmas poem. You could put this inside a Christmas gift.

Toy Escape

Late Christmas Eve, when all was still,
 And the room was dark as night,
 The Christmas tree lit magically;
 It was a fantastic sight!

Then from around the tree trunk came,
A strange and funny sound,
As gifts began to unwrap themselves,
 And toys jumped out all around.

The music box began to play,
 And in a crazy trance,
The candy canes jumped off the tree
 To do a silly dance.

The big stuffed bear leaped to his feet,
To see what he could see;
He rode a shiny, bright red bike
 Around the Christmas tree.

The new toy kitchen started to cook,
 And before you could blink an eye,
The oven door opened, and from inside
 Came a tiny pizza pie.

A squirt gun squirted everything;
 It knew what it was for;
By the time that it was emptied out,
 A big puddle lay on the floor.

A beautiful doll with golden hair
 Was searching for a friend;
A toy soldier marched up and took her hand;
 They were a perfect blend.

In the bedroom were a boy and girl,
 Asleep in Christmas dreams;
The soldier saluted; the doll gave a kiss;
 At least that's the way it seems.

Now everything began to tire;
 The toys went back in place;
But when mother woke in the morning,
 You should have seen her face.

The tree was fine; the gifts were there,
 Yet mother gave a roar;
She looked at her wet shoes and yelled
"What's this puddle on my floor?"

Christmas Cheer a Christmas poem by Thomas Tusser

Make it Snow !

Good husband and housewife, now chiefly be glad,
Things handsome to have, as they ought to be had.
They both do provide, against Christmas do come,
To welcome their neighbors, good cheer to have some.

Good bread and good drink, a good fire in the hall,
Brawn, pudding, and souse, and good mustard withal.
Beef, mutton, and pork, and good pies of the best,
Pig, veal, goose, and capon, and turkey well drest,
Cheese, apples and nuts, and good carols to hear,
As then in the country is counted good cheer.

What cost to good husband, is any of this?
Good household provision only it is:
Of other the like, I do leave out a many,
That casteth the husband never a penny.

Make it Snow !

Christmas Cheer a Christmas poem by Thomas Tusser

Short Christmas Poems



A Song Was Heard At Christmas

A song was heard at Christmas
To wake the midnight sky:
A saviour's birth, and peace on earth,
And praise to God on high.
The angels sang at Christmas
With all the hosts above,
And still we sing the newborn King
His glory and his love.

(Written by Timothy Dudley-Smith)

Christmas Past

Each Christmas I remember
The ones of long ago;
I see our mantelpiece adorned
With stockings in a row.

Each Christmas finds me dreaming
Of days that used to be,
When we hid presents here and there,
For all the family.

Each Christmas I remember
The fragrance in the air,
Of roasting turkey and mince pies
And cookies everywhere.

Each Christmas finds me longing
For Christmases now past,
And I am back in childhood
As long as memories last.

(Written by Carice Williams)

Candlelit Heart

Somewhere across the winter world tonight
You will be hearing chimes that fill the air;
Christmas extends its all-enfolding light
Across the distance...something we can share.

You will be singing, just the same as I,
These familiar songs we know so well,
And you will see these same stars in your sky
And wish upon that brightest one that fell.

I shall remember you and trim my tree,
One shining star upon the topmost bough;
I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see --
Tonight I glimpse beyond the hear and now.

And all the time that we must be apart
I keep a candle in my heart.

(Written by Mary E. Linton)

Christmas Is Here

A good time is coming, I wish it were here,
The very best time in the whole of the year;
I'm counting each day on my fingers and thumbs
the weeks that must pass before Santa Claus comes.

Then when the first snowflakes begin to come down,
And the wind whistles sharp and the branches are brown,
I'll not mind the cold, though my fingers it numbs,
For it brings the time nearer when Santa Claus comes.

Christmas Is A Time For Love And Fun

Christmas is a time for love and fun,
A time to reshape souls and roots and skies,
A time to give your heart to everyone
Freely, like a rich and lavish sun,
Like a burning star to those whose lonely sighs
Show need of such a time for love and fun.

For children first, whose pain is never done,
Whose bright white fire of anguish never dies,
It's time to give your heart to every one,

That not one angel fall, to hatred won
For lack of ears to listen to her cries,
Or arms to carry him towards love and fun,

Or friends to care what happens on the run
To adult life, where joy or sadness lies.
It's time to give your heart to everyone,

For God loves all, and turns His back on none,
Good or twisted, ignorant or wise.
Christmas is a time for love and fun,
A time to give your heart to everyone. .

There's More to Christmas

There's More to Christmas...
There's more, much more to Christmas
Than candle-light and cheer;
It's the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year;
It's thoughtfulness and kindness,
It's hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding
And for goodwill to men!

Merry Christmas To The One I Love

Merry Christmas to the one I love,
Even on this day of love for all,
Remembering the love of one whose call
Redeemed all those whose hearts his love might move.
Yet only one love does my spirit prove,
Chosen in a passion like a squall,
Having in such ecstasy withal
Rejoiced in what we were created of.
In such love do we find our way outdoors,
So to be drawn to love of flesh and soul,
Traveling beyond our village green,
Moving towards the wash along our shores
As our love joins the greater love unseen,
Shining with dark passion on the whole.

When Santa Claus Comes

A good time is coming, I wish it were here,
The very best time in the whole of the year;
I'm counting each day on my fingers and thumbs --
the weeks that must pass before Santa Claus comes.

Then when the first snowflakes begin to come down,
And the wind whistles sharp and the branches are brown,
I'll not mind the cold, though my fingers it numbs,
For it brings the time nearer when Santa Claus comes.

A Christmas Tree

One little star on the top of the tree,
Two little presents underneath for me,
Three silver ropes twisted around the tree,
Four colored lights shining prettily,
Five shining balls flowing silvery.
Oh, what a sight for use to see!

Christmas Eve

CHRISTMAS hath darkness
Brighter than the blazing noon,
Christmas hath a chillness
Warmer than the heat of June,
Christmas hath a beauty
Lovelier than the world can show:
For Christmas bringeth Jesus,
Brought for us so low.
Earth, strike up your music,
Birds that sing and bells that ring;
Heaven hath answering music
For all Angels soon to sing:
Earth, put on your whitest
Bridal robe of spotless snow:
For Christmas bringeth Jesus,
Brought for us so low.

(Written by Christina Rossetti)

Santa

Two merry blue eyes
A very little nose
A long snowy beard
And cheeks like a rose
A round chubby man
A big bulging pack
Hurrah for Old Santa
We're glad he's come back!

I've Been Waiting For Christmas

I've been waiting for Christmas,
And it's almost here.
I've been waiting for Christmas,
Santa's getting near.

Can't you hear the sleigh bells ringing?
Reindeer up so high.
Can't you hear the children singing,
As they watch the sky?

Christmas Bells

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The Carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said;
‘For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!’

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
‘God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!’

(Written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

The Meaning Of Christmas

Far away in Bethlehem, a Baby Boy was born;
Born with neither riches nor with fame,
Yet Wise Men came from all around to bring to Him their gifts,
And peace was felt by all who heard His name.

Angels watched Him as He slept, and gently rocked His bed;
Their voices singing softly in His ear;
His Mother and His Father both gave thanks to God above
For the greatest gift of all, their Son, so dear

They knew His life upon this earth would not be filled with wealth,
They also knew He would encounter strife;
But most of all, they knew that He would be a loving Child,
And teach the love of God throughout His life.

At Christmas, as we celebrate this Birth of Jesus Christ,
Let's keep in mind the truth of Christmas Day;
For it's not the Christmas wrappings, nor the gifts that lie within,
But our gift of love to others in every way...

Wishing (A Child at the Crib)--

It's very cold tonight, dear God,
I wish You had a coat
Of thickest fur
To keep You warm.

But, Jesus, you have her-
Your Mother dear-
To hold You tight
With her arms
This Christmas night.

(Mary to the Child)--

Tis you are cold, dear little one;

Your feet are wet with snow
And you have come a long, long way;
Jesus has told me so.
A coat of fur you wished for Him,
But greater will He do.
My Babe, the very Lamb of God,
Will give Himself to you.

(Written by Agnes Mary)

Mom Is Making Christmas

Cookies baking in the kitchen-
The smell floats through the air;
Mom is making Christmas
with her usual merry flair

The house she gaily decorated,
Each gift she stitched with love,
And we'll gather around the Christmas tree
for an evening of old-fashioned fun

This evening she'll sing a carol for us
With her angel's voice.
Yes, Mom is making Christmas-
A true reason to rejoice

(Written by Vicky A. Luong)


"Christmas Rhymes"



As the yuletide bells ring,
the gladdened Sparrows sing,
red-hooded Santas bring
delights of a Joy-laden Kid.

Reindeers each of regal breed,
all across the white plains speed
to yonder snow-covered climes
to take the joy of the times.

Carols in melodious rhymes
sung in the joyous season,
once a year without ceasing
reveal the only reason
why christmas is for feasting.

 Author: Joseph Ogbonna

Santa's Spill

A Gift for Mother
I've worked on her present for
 weeks and weeks
While others were at play,
For I wanted a very special gift
For Mother on Christmas Day.
I shall tie it up with a pretty bow
And hide it away on a shelf.
Mother has told me that she likes best
The gifts that I make myself.

In Hiding
Sh! Sh! I've hung my stocking up,
And I'm hiding here to see
If Santa's going to fill it up
With Christmas toys for me.
Holly Berries
Why are holly berries red?
And why is snow so white?
Why are spruce and pine so green?
And why are candles bright?

Can't you guess? It's Christmas time
When everything's aglow,
And loving hearts are full of cheer -
It's Christmas - don't you know?

Five Little Evergreens

Five little evergreens
Outside in a row.
The first one said,
"Let's look at the snow."
The second one said,
"Oh-oh, it's getting cold."
The third one said,
"Christmas is coming so I'm told."
The fourth one said,
"I hope someone decorates me."
The fifth one said,
"We'll just have to wait and see."

9 Little Reindeer  :(10 Little Indians)

Christmas Time (Farmer in the Dell)
Christmas time is here
Christmas time is here
Hustle bustle busy time
As Christmas time is here

Christmas trees are up
Christmas trees are up
Tinsel balls and popcorn too
As Christmas time is here

Santa Claus is here
Santa Claus is here
Bringing gifts and stockings too
As Christmas time is her


S-A-N-T-A :(Tune of “Bingo”)
There was a man on Christmas day.
And Santa was his name.
 S-A-N-T-A,
 S-A-N-T-A,
 S-A-N-T-A,
And Santa was his name - o

Santa’s Workshop:

The elves in Santa's workshop
Are busy as can be.
They all are working 'round the clock
On toys for you and me.

They're painting dolly faces,
And running trains on tracks.
They're testing all the snare drums,
And tightening the tacks.

While all of you are sleeping,
And resting in your beds,
The elves up north are making
Strong runners for your sleds.

They do their best to make up
A gift for everyone
And give us each a special taste
Of merry Christmas fun!

Santa Claus is big and fat
He wears black boots
And a bright red hat
His nose is red
Just like a rose
And he ho ho ho's
From his head to his toes.

Santa's Coming:

Santa's coming.
Santa's coming.
Sleigh bells ring,
Sleigh bells ring,
It is Christmas Eve,
It is Christmas Eve,
Ding, ding, dong!
Ding, ding, dong!

S-A-N-T-A
I know a man with a long white beard.
And Santa is his name-O.
S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A
And Santa is his name-o.
He slides down the chimney with a pack
on his back.
And Santa is his name-o.
S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A
And Santa is his name-o.
Eight little reindeer pull his sleigh.
S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A, S-A-N-T-A
And Santa is his name-o.

A Shy Santa:

 Isn't it the strangest thing,
That Santa is so shy?
(hide face with hands)
We can never, never catch him,
(make fingers run)
 No matter how we try.
It isn't any use to watch,
(hold hand to eyes and look)
Because my parents said,
"Santa Claus will only come
When children are in bed!"
(shake finger)

Santa:

Two merry blue eyes
A queer little nose
A long snowy beard
And cheeks like a rose
A round chubby man
A big bulging pack
Hurrah for Old Santa
We're glad he's come back!

Christmas:

C is for Christmas I wait for all year.
H is for holly that brings so
 much cheer.
R is for reindeer that pull
 Santa's sleigh
I is for icicles dripping all day.
S is for Santa who seldom is seen.
T is for tree that is lovely and green.
M is for mistletoe, hugs, and a kiss.
A is for angel who looks just like this.
S is for stockings all loaded with toys
 From all of the elves to the girls
 and the boys.

Candy Canes:

Candy canes are like peppermint sticks.
The more I lick them the smaller they get.
When I'm done and get ready for bed.
I stick out my tongue and it's
 candy cane red!

Sift the flour, mix the butter,
Roll the dough for the cookie cutter.
A white sugar star,
A red Christmas bell,
A brown teddy bear
With a gingery smell.
Christmas cookies taste so sweet,
They're fun to bake and good to eat!

The Chimney:

Down through the chimney
 Santa slipped,
Brushed off the dirt and snow
 that dripped.
Looked around the room
 and then he crept,
Right past the beds where
 the children slept.
Lay all the presents under the tree.
Filled the stockings for the
 children to see.
Then tiptoed to the chimney
 and was out of sight,
He jumped on his sleigh and flew
 off through the night.
One little, two little,
Three little stars
Four little, five little,
Six little stars,
Seven little, eight little,
Nine little stars,
Twinkling in the sky.

or:

bells - ringing in the night
stockings - hanging in a row
candy canes - on the Christmas tree
elves - making all the toys
lights - twinkling on the tree, etc.

Then each child writes and illustrates
their own poem following the pattern.

Outside there's a pine tree
Standing straight and tall.

It need no decorations -
Nature's done it all.

Pine cones on its branches
With icicles glistening bright,
Snow upon its needles
And birds at rest from flight.

I see it from my window,
And take the time to say,
Thank you for your beauty, tree,
On this Christmas day

Christmas Time:

Christmas trees with sparkling lights,
Candles tipped with fire,
Carols sung at home and school,
Happy days inspire.
Greeting cards the Postman brings,
Crisp and cold the weather,
Letters, gifts, and friends for tea,
Families get together.
Plates of cookies, special sweets,
Popcorn, nuts, and candy,
Secrets whispered back and forth,
Christmas time is dandy.

Christmas:

My goodness, my goodness,
It's Christmas again.
The bells are all ringing,
I do not know when
I've been so excited.
The tree is all fixed,
The candles are lighted,
The pudding is mixed.

Sleigh Bells:

Sleigh bells are ringing,
Santa's on his way.
Children are singing,
Soon it's Christmas Day!



I'm A Little Christmas Tree...

I'm a little Christmas tree
Glittering, glittering merrily!
A star at my head
Gifts at my feet
And on all my branches
Candy canes so sweet!

Santa Claus is big and fat
He wears black boots
And a bright red hat.
His nose is red
Just like a rose
And he "ho ho ho's"
From his head to his toes.

Little Pine Tree:

In summertime my branches were
A place for birds to nest.
In autumn my branches were
Their place for food and rest.
And now that wintertime is here
I hope - I hope to be
All glistening bright with snowflakes
-- The birds' Christmas Tree

Sing a Song of Christmas:
Sing a song of Christmas
Old Santa's packed his sleigh
He's coming to Australia
We hope he knows the way
His bag is overflowing,
With presents bright and gay,
He'll call to all the kangaroos
“Tomorrow's Christmas day!”
