It Is Christmas

It is Christmas in the mansion,
Yule-log fires and silkin frocks.
It is Christmas in the cottage,
Mother filling little socks.
It is Christmas in the highway,
In the thronging, busy mart.
But the dearest, truest Christmas
Is the Christmas in the heart.

Thank you for sharing the poem. I woke up this morning grumbling about how commercialized the holiday has become and now after reading your poem, things are better. Beautiful wreath.

I hope the air of Christmas, the beloved decorations that graced Christmases past, a new decoration to mark this year, and all that makes Christmas in your heart fills you and your home most delightfully today and in the weeks ahead.

Beautiful and fresh looking wreath Jo! I made a little one from all the left over Christmas stuff gathered over the years and although it is a little mismatched I still like the results!
Have a great Sunday!
