Holiday Love

The cookie aroma is in the air
The ornaments are hung with care
The presents are waiting anxiously to
Be opened
And the gingerbread house is ready to be eaten
The lights on the tree are shining brightly
The white blanket of winter is spread out nicely
But what in the air
Makes the holiday so special,
After all,
The holiday isn’t about
Cookies,
Ornaments,
The gingerbread house,
The presents,
Or the lights on the tree.
Its about
A family
That cares about each other
And the love that goes around,
And the white blanket of winter
So simple but bright
On a beautiful
Holiday night.

The author's comments:
I was inspired by the thought that even with all the material things, if you don't have the people you love around you, you are not that happy, becuase the material things in life can only bring you only limited happiness especially since you have no one to share it with.

I really liked how you were able to express the true meaning of holidays through simple verses. Its really inspiring and reminds me of the joy that comes with spending the winter holidays with my family. Good job:)
