A Xmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away; While quite unselfish, it grows small"MERRY XMAS"
A silent night, a star above, a blessed gift of hope and love. A blessed Xmas to you! Happy Holidays.
A lovely thing about Xmas is that it's compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.
