What Do We Love About Christmas?

What do we love about Christmas;
Does our delight reside in things?
Or are the feelings in our hearts
The real gift Christmas brings.

It's seeing those we love,
And sending Christmas cards, too,
Appreciating people who bring us joy
Special people just like you.

Year-Round Joy

Christmas is full of shiny things
That sparkle, gleam and glow.
These holiday pleasures dazzle us,
And yet, deep down, we know...

That Christmas has its special gifts,
But our year-round joy depends
On the cherished people in our lives,
Our family and friends.

By Joanna Fuchs

Christmas poetry is better when it is personalized with "you." This Christmas poem is perfect for accompanying a Christmas gift.

The Nicest Present

Under the tree the gifts enthrall,
But the nicest present of them all
Is filling our thoughts with those who care,
Wanting our Christmas joy to share.

To you, whom we're often thinking of,
We send our holiday joy and love.

By Joanna and Karl Fuchs

Here's Christmas poetry about familiar traditions.

Christmas Traditions

The Christmas gift list,
We all agree,
Requires a massive
Shopping spree.

Wrap it up,
Shiny paper and bows.
What’s inside
We won’t disclose!

Then the tree,
Fragrant and green.
Each year it's the best
We've ever seen.

Hang the bulbs
Ornaments too.
Light it up,
Say” ahh,” and “ooh!”

Plan the feast,
Same recipes,
All our favorites,
Prepared to please.

Christmas customs
On joyful display.
It's always the same;
We love it that way.

So bring it all,
So necessary,
Beloved traditions
Make Christmas merry.

Christmas Nostalgia

We're thinking of you,
hoping this is your best Christmas yet,
full of your favorite holiday pleasures.
May the foods taste delicious,
bringing happy nostalgia
for all the Christmases past.
May the decorations dazzle, glitter and glow.
May the gifts you give and get
be exactly the right thing.
May you delight in the warmth of love,
creating even stronger bonds
with family and friends.
Merry Christmas! May this Christmas
live happily in your memory forever.

This Christmas card poem captures some of the many things we love about Christmas. You could frame this Christmas poetry and hang it on the outside of your door so friends and family can see it when they come to visit over the holidays.

Christmas Joys

Evergreen boughs that fill our homes
With fragrant Christmas scents,
Hearts filled with the loving glow
That Christmas represents;

Christmas cookies, turkeys stuffed,
Festive holly berry,
Little faces bright with joy,
Loved ones being merry;

Parties, songs, beribboned gifts,
Silver bells that tinkle,
Christmas trees and ornaments,
Colorful lights that twinkle;

Relatives waiting with open arms
To smile and hug and kiss us;
These are some of the special joys
That come along with Christmas.

Christmas Fulfillment

This Christmas,
may you have the fulfillment
of seeing around you

knowing what Christmas means,
and celebrating it your way.

Christmas poetry often celebrates that special holiday spirit. Here's a Christmas poem about keeping the Christmas spirit year 'round.

(Video) The Best Christmas Song I've Ever Heard. It Will Give You Chills.

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in life—
Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.

By Joanna Fuchs

For cards, Christmas poetry is extra special when it is a Christmas rhyme. It's unusual, however to rhyme every verse of a Christmas poem, as this Christmas card poem does. You can use this Christmas poetry for a Christmas card to accompany a Christmas gift.

Christmas Fun

The tempting gifts are tantalizing;
About opening them, we are fantasizing.
The holiday foods are appetizing;
Our excitement and joy are growing and rising;
Our hearts and minds are harmonizing;
Jolly Christmas fun we're maximizing!

By Joanna Fuchs

This Christmas poem is Christmas poetry that celebrates the magic of Christmas. You can also use this cute Christmas poem to go along with a Christmas gift.

Christmas Magic

Are we too grownup to feel a thrill
As we light the Christmas tree?
Are we immune to cookies,
Christmas cards and Christmas glee?

Are we too adult to "Ooh" and "Aah"
At the Christmas candle's glow?
Are we blasé about our gifts;
Do we shun the mistletoe?

Are we too mature for carols,
For merry or for jolly?
Do the decorations leave us cold,
The ornaments and holly?

Fat chance! We'll never grow too old
To love the Christmas magic.
A year without a Christmas
Would be boring, even tragic.

So bring it on! The candy canes,
The feasting and good cheer;
O Christmas, lovely Christmas,
You're the highlight of the year!

Christmas Tree Poem

Best Christmas Poems - For Cards, Programs, Events (4)

This Christmas tree poem might be a nice wish for Christmas card verse to send on your card with a photo of your own Christmas tree on the front.

Christmas Tree Poem

Christmas tree, sparkling bright,
Filled with baubles, warmth and light,
Precious symbol of our affection
For Christmas time and its perfection,
Show each night your radiant glory
For "oohs" and "aahs" obligatory.

Christmas tree, don't let us down;
Show something special at your crown,
An angel, star, or splendid piece
To make our holiday joy increase,
An icon, pure, ideal, complete,
For Christmas memories fond and sweet.

Glitter and glisten, gleam and glow,
Oh Christmas tree, we love you so!

By Joanna Fuchs

It came to me as Christmas poetry that Christmas poems mention winter weather, but lots of people celebrate in warm climates. So I wrote a Christmas card verse for California, Florida, and other places where it never snows. It turned out to be one of my best Christmas wishes. Note: Make this Christmas poem your own: If "beach" doesn't fit, substitute "best." Fill in your state or town where it says "location."

A Sunny Christmas

Every year at Christmas time
There's not a sign of snow.
Instead we spend our yuletide days
In the sun's warm cheery glow.

We have the best of Christmas things,
The lights, the gifts, the bells,
(And "snowbirds" who arrive en masse
To fill our beach hotels.)

The glorious weather fits right in
With our happy Christmas mood,
And we can also walk and run
Without having to be snowshoed.

So don't feel bad for your (location) friends
Who have no snow or ice.
We think our sunny Christmas here
Is a holiday paradise!

By Joanna Fuchs

Everyone’s ideal Christmas is different, but I think most could agree that this free verse Christmas poem, which could be used as a Christmas card verse, describes what makes Christmas such a major event in our lives.

A Merry Christmas Wish for You

While you enjoy the gifts,
food, sparkle of ornaments and lights,
feasting on favorite foods,
I wish this Christmas
would envelop you
in the special warmth
and rich contentment
the season brings.

I wish friends, family,
all those who love you
let you know how much they care,
so that you feel happily wrapped
in their affection.

I wish this Christmas
would be one you never forget,
a shining beacon in your memory
to light all of your days.

Bright, happy days bring special kinds of pleasure.

About our finest blessings all year through,
We focus on our family and our friends,
And appreciate the gift of knowing you!

The Best Gift

As Christmas time arrives,
We think of you and smile;
Your friendship is the gift
We think most worthwhile.

The packages are pretty
Underneath the tree,
But what we value most
Is your ability

To bring joy to our lives
In everything you do,
Enriching time together
Just by being you.

Christmas Love Poems

Christmas card words for sweethearts are hard to find, but Christmas love poems are in great demand, so here's a Christmas love poem that you could attach to a romantic Christmas gift.

Christmas Love

At Christmastime I think of all the gifts
That bring me great delight and sweet surprise,
But nothing in this world can bring such joy
As you do, when you look into my eyes.

And when I contemplate what Christmas means,
The caring and the giving--I confess,
You've given me the things I want the most:
Your love, your touch, your kiss, your warm caress.

The Christmas tree reminds me, with its lights
That just the thought of you sets me aglow;
You light me up from deep within my heart,
Because I cherish you, and love you so.

With you it's Christmas all the time, sweetheart.
I treasure every hour and every minute.
Your love is all I'll ever want because,
My life is so fulfilling with you in it.

By Joanna Fuchs

I'm surprised at the large demand for romantic Christmas poems, yet a Christmas card poem with love is cherished. This Christmas love poem compares the loved one to a Christmas gift.

Be My Christmas Gift

If you sat beneath the Christmas tree,
You'd sure add to the décor,
But even if you were gift wrapped, dear,
I couldn't love you more.

You have to know that if I had you,
I’d have the gift I'd most adore,
Better than any expensive gift
I could purchase in a store.

If you hug me tight, you wonderful thing,
And be my Christmas gift,
You’ll brighten my days forevermore
And give my heart a lift.

By Karl Fuchs

Here's a Christmas love poem from husband to wife, a romantic Christmas poem sure to please.

The Most Wonderful Gift

The most wonderful gift ever given to me
Isn't one to be found by a Christmas tree.
It's you, my treasure, my wonderful wife,
The most beautiful, glorious thing in my life.

You are caring and warm, in truth, a delight,
A most wonderful prize whose love still shines bright.
I shudder to think how bare life would be,
If the gift of your love weren't given to me.

You are Christmas delights all wrapped into one,
And those joys still go on when Christmas is done!

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs

My adorable and darling Karl wrote this Christmas love poem for me, and I polished it up a bit. You can see his photo at the bottom of the home page here. It's my favorite Christmas poetry.

Christmas Time Together

For most, this time of year
Is ornaments, lights and gifts.
People are out to shop,
Though snow may mass in drifts.

For me this time is different
From what others feel and see;
For me it's just more happiness
Full of you and me.

You fill my life with joy
Each moment that we share.
I'm thankful for time with you;
Nothing can compare.

I want to make life good for you
In every way I can.
You’ve been my own true love
Since our relationship began.

So I’m writing you this poem
To help you to feel my love;
We can be this way forever,
With help from up above.

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs

Karl wore this Christmas love poem for me, and I polished it.

Christmas for My Sweets

There's no better Christmas gift in my whole life
Than having you as my wonderful wife.
I'm blessed each day when I see your smile,
And I hope it keeps shining for quite a long while.

So on this wonderful Christmas day,
Hope for your happiness is what I pray.
I love you a lot, my Sweets, my wife.
I wish you'll be happy for the rest of your life.

One of our neighbors goes all out with lighted inflatables for holidays. You should have seen what they did for the holiday that falls on the last day of October. Unbelievable! I took this photo there, but it only shows part of the huge display, which also includes a revolving snow globe with a variety of pictures displaying inside, and more! Sometimes these Christmas inflatables lose air, and that limp reindeer at the left looks like it could use some help!

Funny Christmas Poems

Christmas poems for kids are popular. This Christmas card verse for family could be used as a funny Christmas card rhyme. A fantasy is described in this poem about Christmas. You could also use this as funny Christmas card poetry.

Toy Escape

Late Christmas Eve, when all was still,
And the room was dark as night,
The Christmas tree lit magically;
It was a fantastic sight!

Then from around the tree trunk came,
A strange and funny sound,
As gifts began to unwrap themselves,
And toys jumped out all around.

The music box began to play,
And in a crazy trance,
The candy canes jumped off the tree
To do a silly dance.

The big stuffed bear leaped to his feet,
To see what he could see;
He rode a shiny, bright red bike
Around the Christmas tree.

The new toy kitchen started to cook,
And before you could blink an eye,
The oven door opened, and from inside
Came a tiny pizza pie.

A squirt gun squirted everything;
It knew what it was for;
By the time that it was emptied out,
A big puddle lay on the floor.

A beautiful doll with golden hair
Was searching for a friend;
A toy soldier marched up and took her hand;
They were a perfect blend.

In the bedroom were a boy and girl,
Asleep in Christmas dreams;
The soldier saluted; the doll gave a kiss;
At least that's the way it seems.

Now everything began to tire;
The toys went back in place;
But when mother woke in the morning,
You should have seen her face.

The tree was fine; the gifts were there,
Yet mother gave a roar;
She looked at her wet shoes and yelled
"What's this puddle on my floor?"

By Joanna Fuchs

Funny Christmas poems are very popular. Here's a funny Christmas card verse that centers on eating.

Holiday Feasting

Holiday time is for feasting;
We look forward to each treat.
The tables are full of our favorite foods;
We’ve got lots of good things to eat.

We scarf marshmallowed sweet potatoes;
There’s cider and eggnog to slurp.
There’s so much going down at once,
Who can help an occasional burp?

Here’s the turkey, dressing and gravy;
Let’s all get down to chewing it,
And if we pass a little gas,
Who’ll notice? Everyone’s doing it.

Dessert is three kinds of pie;
Then pass the box of candy.
Next year will you please remind us
To have Alka-Seltzer handy!

By Joanna Fuchs

Here's a photo I took of Santa at the Mall, waiting to thrill starry-eyed kids.

Christian Christmas Poems

This religious Christmas poem describes the true meaning of Christmas. Many people are searching for religious Christmas card sayings.

The Real Reason

Excitement and joy are filling the air;
The lights add special decor.
We're shopping for Christmas gifts everywhere,
But are gifts what Christmas is for?

The wreaths and the trees and the parties
Aren't what we need to convey;
It's the birth of our Savior, Jesus,
The real reason for this holiday.

Soldier Christmas Poems

This soldier Christmas poem honors our troops. It's a military Christmas card verse that honors civilian staff as well. Send this military Christmas poetry to someone whose service you want to honor.

A Soldier Is A Gift

As we celebrate Christmas, and we open our gifts,
we realize what priceless gifts a soldier gives to our country—
the gifts of patriotism, service, and deep dedication to our nation.

As we feast on a variety of fine Christmas delicacies,
we acknowledge that a soldier personifies a variety of fine qualities:
courage, good character, honor, fortitude amidst hardship,
persistence in subduing evil, and bravery in the face of danger.

A soldier is a cut above the rest of us,
doing jobs we could not or would not do.
While we are surrounded by Christmas comforts,
we remember soldiers in places we would not want to be,
bringing the gift of adaptability to any situation,
no matter how harsh or difficult.

As we "ooh" and "aah" over the Christmas lights and shiny ornaments
we recognize that a soldier gives us the most cherished gift of all,
the shining light of freedom.

At Christmas, let us wrap our hearts and minds
around our treasured soldiers.
May they understand how very much their service means to us.
Let us send the Christmas gifts of love, respect and admiration
to our steadfast, loyal, magnificent warriors
and their essential civilian support staff.

They themselves are the most precious Christmas gift of all,our protectors—our soldiers.

Those Who Are Dear

The turkey's bought and will soon be stuffed;
The guest room's ready, the pillows fluffed.
The closet's full of holiday gifts;
The snow is here, piled up in drifts.

Our plans are made for the coming New Year;

We feel so blessed that we know you.
