Let Me Not Keep Christmas
Let me not wrap, stack, box, bag, tie, tag, bundle, seal, ‘keep’ Christmas.
Christmas kept is liable to mold.
Let me give Christmas away, unwrapped, by exuberant armfuls.
Let me share, dance, live Christmas unpretentiously, merrily, responsibly with overflowing hands, tireless steps and sparkling eyes.
Christmas given away will stay freshâ€”even until it comes again.
– Linda Felver
