24 days before Christmas


24 days before Christmas Day.
24 days of cold chilly nights.
24 days of laughter, joy, and spirit in the air.
24 days where people are a little bit nicer.
24 days of giving to those in need of help
and to those we love and care.
24 days of playing in the glistening snow.
24 days of Christmas songs sung.
24 days of preparing for celebration.
24 days of counting down
'till Christmas Day.

These 24 days are the longest
most joyous 24 days
before Christmas Day.

And one by one
the days will grow smaller.
And before we know it
Christmas Day will have arrived
and on that day we'll celebrate
with our friends and family.

These 24 days are the longest
most joyous 24 days
before Christmas Day.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
