How lovely are the sentiments
Contained in Christmas cards,
As well as dear heartwarming scenes,
Of snowy trees and yards.
They never change so very much
But who would want it so,
For Christmas seems to just belong
To cedar trees and snow.
The greetings on a Christmas card,
Are precious as a gem,
Because old neighbors and old friends
Send us their love with them.
Warming our hearts with loving words,
Making us know that they
Are thinking of dear bygone times,
Upon this Christmas Day.
A holly wreath, a little church,
A lovely lighted door,
Some carol singers in the street,
The windows of a store,
All these are part of Christmastime,
Like cake and mistletoe,
Because a card arrived today,
And sort of told me so.

Editor's note: The Christmas card originated in England in the 1840's.
One Christmas, Joe and Peter built a skating rink in the middle of a field.
A shepherd leading his flock decided to take a shortcut across the rink.
The sheep, however, were afraid of the ice and wouldn't cross it.
Desperate, the shepherd began tugging them to the other side.
'Look at that, 'remarked Peter to Joe, 'That guy is trying to pull the wool over our ice!'
