Underneath the Christmas Tree, Up Above the Fire Place
Underneath the Christmas Tree lay ripped up wrapping paper.
Up above the fire place was the empty glass of milk, and the tray with nothing but little crumbs of cookies.
A note from Santa, left during the night, as well as a smaller note from the family Elf-On-A-Shelf.
The adults of the family gathered in the living room, laughing and singing along to Christmas Carols on the Radio.
Outside, in the front yard, the kids, both young and old, played in the snow.
Snowmen used as shields from flying snowballs, giant hills of snow held sleds, waiting for them to slid down.
Shrieks filled the yard, as well as laughter.
That is what Christmas is;
Having fun with family. Singing carols, the snowball fights out in the yard, the laughter filling the house.
That is the best Christmas to ever be.
Spend time with family, and you'll make the best memories.
Sure, the presents will be awesome for a while, but those never stay forever. The memories do.
The perfect Christmas.
