Merry Christmas Bloggers!!! Recipe for Christmas All Year Long By Joanna Fuchs




Recipe for Christmas All Year Long
Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise.
Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.
Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)
Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.
If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.

  5. You missed a couple of lines:

    Marinate in strong spirits,
    and get baked.

  8. It'll be good if people would do what poem says.. Nowadays almost everyone treat christmas as a commercial holiday and that's why they can't feel the magic.
