Here is my Christmas wish to you
Hold it close and it may come true
Receive that Special Christmas glow
Perhaps even some Christmas snow
Find Christmas spirit in your heart
That's where Christmas has to start
Find joy in the love that you share
Giving at Christmas shows we care
Enjoy the day with family and friends
A heartfelt Christmas that never ends
Keep Christmas each and every day
You may smile more but that's ok
May Christmas live inside of you
And show in all you say and do
Find joy in all that you receive
It's possible when you believe
