I believe that Christmas is the best holiday!

Twas the season of Christmas and all through the town,

The people were busy buying toys, hats, and gowns.

The spirit of Christmas was all out and about,

Forget all the presents (they said to themselves), for it is about the love that is out.

Christmas is not my favorite holiday because of the commercial reasons. I believe that Christmas is the best holiday because there is nothing better then the spirit of Christmas. Christmas brings us all closer together, helps us become more charitable, and helps lift everyone’s spirits.

Christmas enables us to remember others, to remember what is truly important in our life.

The spirit of Christmas is felt all around. Through the music, the lights, the smells… it is all around us, ready to lift our spirits and put a little skip back into our step.
