About the Christmas spirit.
There’s something kind of odd to see
about the Christmas season;
It’s like it somehow sets us free
to act like love was reason.
Why does it take mythology,
with Santa and with yule,
To make us act like Christians, free
of greeds oppressive rule?
To give a gift, it seems to me,
is always good to do,
And wishing well of all we see
is wise the whole year through.
Yes, something’s odd in Christmas season;
It stands alone for no clear reason.
Of all the year, it is the part
When it’s OK to show your heart.
