days of old Christmas

You can feel the magic in the air , it’s the Christmas
Spirit that’s everywhere.
Thanksgiving is gone and the mad rush has begun
With Black Friday sales for everyone.

Your children’s eyes are open wide , hoping to get that big surprise.
Bicycles , skateboards , roller blades and more
Electronic games . Xboxes and PS4

Yet some still hold on to days of old when children played in the cold.
Waiting for that first snowfall to build a snowman and have a snowball fight
This was the children’s delight .

Getting your sled and taking it to the top of the hill
and sliding all the way down – “was such a thrill” .
And in the city or in the suburbs , the sounds of the children’s laughter
Was all that was heard.

Where children would walk by your side greeting others
With a “ hello “ or “ hi “ and wishing everyone a a “ Merry Christmas “
And a “happy new year “ and walking the streets without any fears.

Time does not stand still and things must change, but children
Should not be in the house playing some games.
