Barbara J. Stewart submitted this poem as a letter to the editor:
I’m not letting go of Christmas
I’m wearing my green and my red
I love all the wonder of Christmas
the Christ child in his manger bed.
I love how the children are happy,
the lights and the carols we sing,
and God in his heaven is watching,
us loving and praising our king.
So when I see you, I’ll be smiling
But in my heart I’ll wish you “good cheer!”
For I’m not letting go of Christmas
Until Christmas comes around next year.
