I hope no one is offended but this seems appropriate for here.

    This ties in the 2 main characters of Christmas.

    The sleigh was all packed,
    The reindeer were fed,
    But Santa still knelt
    By the side of the bed.

    "Dear Father," he prayed,
    "Be with me tonight,
    There's much work to do,
    And my schedule is tight."

    "I must jump in my sleigh
    And streak through the sky,
    Knowing full well
    That a reindeer can't fly."

    "I will visit each household,
    Before the first light,
    I'll cover the world,
    And all in one night."

    "With sleigh bells a-ringing,
    I'll land on each roof,
    Amid the soft clatter
    Of each little hoof."

    "To get in the house
    Is the difficult part,
    So I'll slide down the chimney
    Of each child's heart."

    "My sack will hold toys
    To grant all their wishes,
    The supply will be endless,
    Like the loaves and the fishes."

    "I will fill all the stockings
    And not leave a track,
    I'll eat every cookie
    That is left for my snack."

    "I can do all these things Lord,
    Only through You,
    I just need your blessing,
    Then it's easy to do."

    "All this is to honor
    The birth of the One,
    That was sent to redeem us ...
    Your most Holy Son."

    "So to all of my friends,
    Least Your glory I rob,
    Please Lord, remind them
    Who gave me this job."

    I posted a bunch of poems off of christmas cards on the chit chat board and Mindy's board if you want to read more.
    Got them on the castle mountain site and thought some were so cute and some so serious and some just because I liked them.
