Sleigh Bells Ring, are You Listening – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

I see the christmas lights and hear the yuletide carols.  I remember hiding under the mistletoe. The yesteryears of waiting for santa, expecting a gift eventhough i’ve been naughty, not nice.

I opened the beautifully wrapped gifts.  In excitement i ignore the intricate wrappings. I barely acknowledge the efforts taken in covering the precious presents. Sometimes i forget to give thanks not just for the gifts but for its beautiful wrappings.

Oh, christmas is just around the corner.  A time to be jolly and sleigh rides.  But what happens when Santa’s reindeers are missing because their antlers are used for decorating?  And yes when the sleigh bells started ringing, are you really listening or just hearing?

Although i admit i don’t live in winter wonderland, it doesn’t mean i can’t feel the cold snow and its breeze. But the happy lights of yuletide lanterns and strangers’ smiling faces can make me say,  indeed it’s a beautiful happy sight.

One need  not wait for christmas day,  loving and sharing is not just for a day.  It’s all year through for someone with a giving and grateful heart.   But every year,  i don’t know why i am more kind,  when the christmas bells are starting to chime.

Silver Bells, It’s Christmas Time in The City

Silver Bells, It’s Christmas Time in The City — https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com

To herald the coming of the king
with chimes and carols
of joyful gatherings

To sing the song
of love and sharing
in the town of silver bells
wrapped in silver platings

Gifts in superficial dressings
of laces and ribbons
for santa’s blessings

Deck the halls
with worldly follies
oddly forgetting the essence
of christmas story

Where santa’s gift
defines the yuletide spells
in the holy town of silver bells.

The Gift

The Gift, Christmas, all i want for christmas, holidays, santa, photography

Don’t ask me what i want,  don’t ask me what i need.  It’s nothing you can buy but something you can give.

I thought i knew all along what i want for the holidays……

Although chocolates and ice creams are always welcome as a gift. I know it will melt and be gone even before the carolers are done with their songs.

That expensive wristwatch i long for on those bygone days will suddenly lose its glaze as the fad lose its craze.

And long after the Christmas spirit fades when Santa and his reindeers begin their journey back home, i know deep inside that all i want for Christmas is  love  in its purest form.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Santa Claus is Coming to Town, joys of joel poems, best christmas gift ever
Santa Claus is Coming to Town – https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

“Those who believe are always rewarded with the truth”  santa used to say.

Even at middle age, santa makes me stay. This time not for the toys or the candies on the mistletoe. But on looking forward to the things that make me smile.

The yuletide music that whispers on my ears,  the small precious tokens i received from my peers. The call from a friend just to say hello, asking what the hell i’ve been doing since that last hello.

Yes, i’m no longer a kid , although my mom always say “grow up and be responsible’.. ..I’ve learned that Santa Claus exists so better be accountable.

Through all the christmas yesteryears and those santa’s yuletide gifts. I know i never have to wait for Christmas.

My family is Santa’s Lifetime Gift.  And i received it long time ago even  before Santa Claus came to town.
