If the sharp scent of pine never filled up the air
And the crisp morning air never filled up with snow
Then what would exist of the winter we know?
If the chanukah candles sat in a drawer never lit
If the stockings never got hung for saint nick
If the bright decorations of kwanzaa were hidden
What if celebrating the holidays was simply forbidden?
If the churches never opened their doors christmas eve
If children were taught they aught not to believe
If it were illegal to sing holiday songs
All the magic of winter would simply be gone.
No matter what is celebrated during this season
We all celebrate it for similar reasons
For joy and cheer and family and love
For believing in someone looking down from above
The winter is beautiful for what we make it
Tolerating religions and giving donations.
For celebrating where we come from or what we believe
Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Years Eve.
