Our Christmas – Stephen Holland

Our Christmas: Poetry For Students And Children

Christmas came early for you and for me
Christmas with no gifts to open
Christmas without any yuletide tree
Christmas with words of love spoken

Christmas was walking to York hand in hand
Christmas in awe at the Minster
Christmas togetherness was just what we planned
Christmas was chaffed legs and blisters

Christmas was cups of tea served early morn
Christmas was being together
Christmas was loving from dusk until dawn
Christmas remembered forever

Christmas was driving through floods for the view
Christmas ‘our planning’ was starting
Christmas our Christmas meant so much to me
Christmas our bitter sweet parting

Stephen Holland


Christmas is an annual festival celebrated on 25th December every year. It is primarily the festival of people who follow Christianity, but has become highly popular amongst everyone. India has a great attraction towards this festival as it brings with itself a lot of happiness, fun and enjoyment. Children enjoy Christmas very much because they get gifts, sweets, etc from their elders. Several states in India such as Kerala, Tamil Nadu in the south, Goa in the west, Nagaland, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh in the north-eastern part of India have special charm for this festival. These states are considerably populated with people who follow Christianity; thus these places become utmost scenic during the Christmas season. Christmas is also popular in Kolkata, the capital city of West Bengal because Kolkata (earlier known as Calcutta) was the capital city during the reign of East India Company.

Christmas Celebration

Christmas is celebrated in the honour of Jesus Christ’s birthday; the lord of humanity and harmony. Thus, everyone during the Christmas season forget their enmity and come together to celebrate the birthday of their beloved God with great zeal and fervour. By distributing sweets, they spread the message that our deeds should be equally fruitful and devoid of any feeling of malice or hatred. Christmas tree and Santa Clause are an indispensable part of this festival. A huge pine or fir tree gets decorated with glitters, chocolates, gifts, sweets, etc. Cities get illuminated with different types of lights. The passion and attraction of Christmas festival is increasing year by year and it has become one of the national festivals of India now.
