Christmas Sonnet

Somehow, it seems that Christmas
Brings out the best in us.
Its aura and mystique has long
Been the main thrust.

The mystery of Santa.
The angels and the elves.
The little Child of Bethlehem.
The presents on the shelves.

The story of the wise men.
The carols, hymns and songs.
The Christmas cards and greetings.
And the peace that comes along.

For Christmas is so practical—
And yet it is so magical.
