Holiday Joy

Poet: Julie Hebert, ©2015

Today is but a holiday,
The best one I do think.
Hang the decor and bake the food,
It's time to celebrate.

My favourite thing about this is,
All the family and friends.
Conversation feels like a vacation,
Get it all in before it ends.

Today is my favourite thing,
A holiday to enjoy.
Crafts and baking and decorating,
So many wonderful joys.

The best thing about this holiday,
Besides all those wonderful things.
I get to spend every minute with you,
While we talk, dance and even sing.


The Day of Days
Poet: Edgar A. Guest


A year is filled with glad events:
The best is Christmas day,
But every holiday presents
Its special round of play,
And looking back on boyhood now
And all the charms it knew,
One day, above the rest, somehow,
Seems brightest in review.
That day was finest, I believe;
Though many grown-ups scoff,
When mother said that we could leave
Our shoes and stockings off.

Through all the pleasant days of spring
We begged to know once more
The joy of barefoot wandering
And quit the shoes we wore;
But always mother shook her head
And answered with a smile:
"It is too soon, too soon," she said.
"Wait just a little while."
Then came that glorious day at last
When mother let us know
That fear of taking cold was past
And we could barefoot go.

Though Christmas day meant much to me,
And eagerly I'd try
The first boy on the street to be
The Fourth day of July,
I think: the summit of my joy
Was reached that happy day
Each year, when, as a barefoot boy,
I hastened out to play.
Could I return to childhood fair,
That day I think I'd choose
When mother said I needn't wear
My stockings and my shoes.

Thanksgiving Poems



Society encourages us to cram the holiday season with as many activities as possible, and if we are not busy every single minute of the day we are not "doing" the holidays correctly. Everyone needs moments of peace, and kids are no exception.
