The ABC's of Christmas

A couple of ABC poems that I liked and will be having the boys use as copywork this month. Thought I would share them with you.


The ABC's of Christmas

A is for the Angel who sang, "Peace on Earth",

B is for the bells that rang out the Baby's birth.

C is for the Christmas candle, lighting up the night,

D is for the drum that makes one boy's Christmas bright.

E is for the Eve when we're all excited!

F is for the fun when the tree is finally lighted!

G is for the gifts Santa leaves on that special night,

H is for the holly with pointed leaves and berries bright.

I is for the icing on our Christmas cake so tall,

J is for Jesus, the reason for it all.

K is for the kindness shown without reason,

L is for the Lights of the Season.

M is for the Manger bed for Jesus at His birth,

N is for Noel we all sing on earth.

O is for the oxen, the first to adore Him,

P is for the Presents the Wise Men lay before Him.

Q is for the quiet night, with hardly a beat,

R is for the reindeer with speedy tireless feet.

S is for Santa bringing Christmas Joy,

T is for the lighted tree, to amaze each girl and boy.

U is for Us--all the family,

V is for visitors stopping by for tea.

W is for the wreath hanging on the door,

X is for the X-tra special feeling Christmas brings and more.

Y is for Your Christmas joys, may they be bright,

Z is for the animal zoo at His feet that night.

A to Z, all the alphabet you see!

Merry Christmas to all, wherever you be!
