The first Christmas there probably wasn’t any snow,
We really cannot picture Christmas without it though.
There were no trees, ornaments or strings of light
The moon and the stars were really all that were calm and bright.
The presents didn’t even arrive on that first Christmas day
Because it was actually the day the Magi began on their way.
It’s kind of funny how what looked like an ordinary birth
Brought a baby into the world who would change this whole earth.
Just a mother, father and newborn child out in the dark
Looked nothing like the coming of the prophesied monarch.
No one probably would have given them a second look
Except of course to wonder why there was no room for them to book.
Christmas has always been rather unexpected,
And today the truth of it is too often neglected.
From our modern celebration that has a different tone
To the first Christmas that passed largely unknown,
The message of Christmas should always hold true
Jesus Christ came to earth for me and for you.
