It’s not the pretty Christmas tree, all decked out so bright,
It’s not the deer out in the yard, with all the pretty lights.
It’s not the shopping with it’s rush, push, rush about,
Buying selfish things for us, we just can’t live without.

Don’t let yourself get caught up in all this shopping frenzy,
We celebrate the birth of Jesus, laying in a manger..
Teach the little ones of love, kindness and how to share,
And when they grow into adults, they then will really care.

Slow down, and catch your breath enjoy this beautiful season,
you will feel much better, and it’ll also help your breathing.
Spend this time with family, you don’t need a reason,
Remember Jesus is the reason for this Christmas season.
