Everyday’s Christmas!

Stars twinkle brightly,
Emitting Christmas lights,
Glowworms glow like candle flames,
Setting scenes of delight.

All the trees that proudly stand,
Rooted to the ground,
Need no glass but just the leaves,
For beauty to be bound.

Stockings need not to be checked,
For life’s a gift right away,
And everybody we come across,
Is Santa anyway.

Some might gift us memories,
Some might gift us life,
Some might gift us betrayal,
To make us stronger through the strife.

To hear “living” birds chirp,
Is to hear Christmas carols play,
And when the world shall stand as one,
It’s Christmas everyday!!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas. I hope your days are filled with joy and celebrations. Let’s try to make everyday Christmas, for everybody.

(P.S. Forgive me for my brief absence from the community)

    For life’s a gift right away,
    And everybody we come across,

    “And everybody we come across,
    Is Santa anyway.
    Some might gift us memories,
    Some might gift us life,
    Some might gift us betrayal,
    To make us stronger through the strife.”
    Wonderful poem for this time of year and for always…🌲🙏✨

        I did not know that. It is however a wonderful thing to see, how all of us can take the best in every religion. After all, all we need is a reason to celebrate. So, what was for dinner?

That is the wonderful thing about WordPress,,we are from all over the world, diverse beliefs but we all get along and we all love to blog and create:):) I made a rice and chicken dish and chicken tamales *that are traditionally made with pork..but the chicken ones are very delicious too. Thank you..so sweet for asking:) 🤗

        The dish sounds delish. Tamales are quintessential south American, aren’t they?

        Mine you ask. It was very elaborate. We had wonderful pea and mint soup, butternut agnolotti with spinach, baked au gratin, a Christmas fruit cake, sugar cookies, Bûche De Noël and wine.
        I was thinking of having a good story soon. See you there.
