What Does Christmas Mean?

An old poem about the Christmas season, obviously.

As we hear the Christmas carols ring
And see families happily shopping
What does Christmas mean?

As we hear the news from everywhere
Of suffering, strife and people who don’t care
What does Christmas mean?

As we meet people along the way
Where human beings on streetsides for a night stay
What does Christmas mean?

As we give and receive a gift
Do ours and what was ours make our hearts shift?
What does Christmas mean?

As we live through each passing moment
With each smile or tear or emotion spent
What does Christmas mean?
