If there was no tree this year, no rows of twinkling lights
No ornaments, no bells to ring, no frosty snowmen bright
I’d miss the cheerful bustle with which the season starts
But no matter where I find myself, I’ll keep Christmas in my heart.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Lynn!
The same to you, Tracy!!
Happy New Year to you and yours!
Thanks, Frank, a Happy New Year to you and Mrs. Angle as well1
So true, so true. I once lived in a land where Christmas was not celebrated and I had to come to the point of your poem. It didn’t take me long to do so, but most of all, I appreciated the meaning of Christmas so much more. Blessings to you and yours and a very happy new year!
Eleanor, I am so sorry that you did once live in that land, but you are so courageous and creative to have overcome that and to have found that inner Christmas. I wish you the very best new year – and I am your biggest fan 🙂
Thank you for visiting and commenting, Rexlin!

Beautiful, Lynn. Merry Christmas! 🙂
Thanks, Robin. Merry Christmas!
The spirit of Christmas in the heart is a thread that runs through all of humanity. Merry Christmas to you and yours! …. PS: I recall your Father Time piece from last year. 🙂
Thanks, Frank – you are absolutely right about the heart of Christmas. Thanks for visiting and I look forward to your party tonight!
Beautiful sentiment! Best wishes for all your Christmas dreams as well 🙂
And to you, Ogee! May visions of Golden Sugarplums dance in your head 🙂
