What Christmas Means To Me

Story

I wrote this song for a yearly Christmas show called, "A Winter's Tune." A year later I recorded a version for a compilation CD called "Winter in West Michigan," a charity CD featuring nine West Michigan songwriters. I was proud to be included. 

Lyrics

Outside the snow is fallin' and it's gettin' bitter cold
I'm thinkin' 'bout the season and how I'm growin' old
Then I watch the final leaf, fallin' from the final tree
And I find myself thinkin' what does Christmas mean to me

Well it means a lot of shoppin', it means a lot of noise
It means a lot of eatin', and way too many toys
And it means a lot of searchin' for souls hard to find
And as I stare out my window, I can't get Christmas off my mind

      Christmas comes but once a year on that we all agree
      But shouldn't Christmas spirit be a life's philosophy
      So as you place your angel high atop your Christmas tree
      Have some fun enjoy the family
      Give someone a smile it's always free
      Make yourself another memory
      That's what Christmas means to me

It means a lot of hustle and way too little time
It means a lot of pressure and for some an uphill climb
But it also means reflection on lives hard to live
Let's make everyday Christmas, the season to give

            Chorus

            No matter when no matter where
            We can always take some time to care

If Christ were here he'd tell us just what we ought to do
Treat your neighbor as yourself the whole year through
And make the world a better place, with everything you do
Say a little prayer tonight, wishes can come true

            Chorus
