Christmas Spell

{let the magic happen}

Christmas is more than a day in December It's all of those things that we love to remember Its carolers singing familiar refrains Bright coloured stockings and shiny toy trains Streamers of tinsel and glass satin balls Laughter that rings through the house and its halls Christmas is more than a day in December Its the magic and the love That we"ll always remember

-M.E.Miro-
