what charismas feel like

What Christmas Feels Like
The tree’s aglow with colors of red, green, blue, and orange,
The heat’s toasty arms warmly embrace us.
Presents under the Christmas tree
Beg to be released from their bright, sparkling coats.
Santa Claus cookies washed down with boiling, hot chocolate;
Shouts of glee and appreciation;
Hearts overflowing with love;
This is what Christmas feels like.
