Christmas is one of the most popular festivals worldwide. It is celebrated on 25th December every year, but the celebrations start well in advance. It is celebrated in the honour of the lord Jesus Christ as he was born on this day to mother Mary. Jesus lived an exemplary life and taught everyone to follow the path of goodness; he taught people to believe in the almighty and perform good deeds. The life led by Jesus is an example that must be followed by everyone for attaining salvation and for living in harmony on this earth.
A Child’s Christmas Eve Dream: Poetry For Kids & Students
Last night I had a lovely dream,
But strange as it could be,
For on the hill beside our house
Stood a great Christmas tree.
It glowed with lighted candles,
High at the top, a star,
And ’round it, dancing in a ring,
Children from lands afar.
There were polite, little English girls,
Swiss boys with funny skis,
Dutch children in queer wooden shoes,
Joined hands with shy Chinese.
Perhaps my dream’s a prophecy
Of Christmases to be,
When little children everywhere
Can sing because they’re free.
I surely wish with all my heart,
This day of Jesus’ birth,
That peace and love and happiness
Soon cover all the earth.
