“I will wish you on Christmas,”

He said.

“Wish me now,

Today is Christmas,” I told him.

“Don’t be a fool, my friend;”

He said irritated,

“Every day is not Christmas.”

I did not want to see

My friend irritated

With what I said…

So, I said,

“Yes, friend,

Every day is not Christmas.”

When Christmas comes,

Bells will chime…

Snow will fall…

And, Stars will be bright…

There will be music,

There will be dance…

And, there will be

A never-ending night!

Yes, that is the time,

Someone wants to wish me:

“Merry Christmas!”

Not, NOW!

There is music in my heart…

There is dance in my soul…

The bells are chiming…

The snow is falling…

And, yes, the Stars are bright.

My heart longs to wish,

“Merry Christmas, my friend…

Please, don’t wait.”

Yes, Gerald,

When X'MAS comes, we wonder: Where is the music? Where is the dance? Where is the snowfall and where are the bright stars?

25th Dec is only a date!

The celebration is always in the NOW!

This Post is one of the finest writings I have ever come across!

Thank you for such a lovely Cake!

Samiksha, you must have heard this:

"Wherever we go, we carry ourselves!"

If we can not be happy 'here', when we reach 'there', we will only wonder: 'WHY?'

Today is Christmas. Let's celebrate!

Thanks for such a lovely comment,
