Christmas Blessings

A Christmas Blessing

During this Christmas season, 
May you be blessed 
With the spirit of the season, 
    which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
    which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
    which is love

Somehow, not only for Christmas
    But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
    Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
    The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing
    Returns to you glad.
----John Greenleaf Whittier
