Christmas may be many things or it may be a few.
For you, the joy is each new toy; for me, it's watching you.
Two things upon this changing earth can neither change nor end; the splendor of Christ's humble birth, and my love for you.
A silent night, a star above, a blessed gift of hope and love. A blessed Christmas to you, my love!
