Christ Mass Longing

I long for a Christmas with more Nativities,
and less Santas, reindeer, and candies.
I long for a Christmas when people
no longer look under the tree.
for gifts they will receive.
But they look upon the Child in the crib,
And the gifts that, to Him, they will give.
I long for an old fashioned white Christmas,
with lights of guidance and welcome
hanging in every portico,
and lights of celebration and joy,
adorning every window.
I long for a Christmas
that really is a celebration,
of the birth of the Almighty
into His chosen Incarnation.
I long for a Christmas
when again we may say,
"Merry & Blessed Christmas!"
and not just, "happy Holidays."
