The Real Christmas Story! The Night Before Christmas!

The Real Story! The Night Before Christmas!

 

ccccccccccc

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future.

It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace. 

The real Christmas giving That makes this life worth living

And shows that we are any use in this old world of care Is to give where it is needing

And pass not by unheeding The wants of those around us who do not get their share. Some humble, little present

Or a smile that’s warm and pleasant Will please a child or cheer those hearts that oft for kindness yearn And will give more real pleasure

Than a ton of costly treasure That we send our friends, expecting something better in return.

300_184083TROY, N.Y. – Printed part way down page 3 of the Troy Sentinel on Dec. 23, 1823, it was easy to miss. Between beekeeping tips and a wedding announcement was a seasonal poem.

Submitted anonymously, the poem charmed editors who published it anyway. It started like this:

“‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house …”

The rest is Christmas history.

chhh“Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas” spread beyond this bustling, blooming Hudson River city as papers and almanacs elsewhere reprinted it. The poem helped cement the popular image of Santa as a “right jolly old elf” with a twinkle in his eye and eight reindeer (no Rudolph yet). Quoted by kids, co-opted by advertisers, celebrated in songs and shows, it is one of the most famous American poems.

And 184 years later, there are still dissenting views about who wrote it.

Clement Clarke Moore claimed credit 21 years after the poem appeared in the Troy paper. Moore was a wealthy Bible scholar, the sort of man that the phrase “pillar of society” was meant to describe – pious, accomplished, esteemed family – and the claim was universally accepted.

Or almost so.

Soon after Moore’s name became linked to the poem, counterclaims were made that a Revolutionary War veteran from the Hudson Valley named Henry Livingston was the true author. Livingston’s relatives claimed he read the poem aloud to his family years before the Troy publication. Livingston’s champions maintain that Moore – that God-fearing pillar of rectitude – lied.

“This comes up every year,” said Kathryn Sheehan of the Rensselaer County Historical Society as she pulled the old St. Nicholas file. The collection of copied articles, testimonies and letters provides no definitive answer on the poem’s authorship, though it tells some good stories.

Moore taught at Columbia College and lived with his family in New York City on a big estate in Manhattan called Chelsea (it gave its name to the neighborhood). If not for the Christmas poem, his literary claim to fame likely would have been a two-volume Hebrew dictionary.

According to his descendants, Moore’s muse struck while out sleigh riding to fetch a turkey on Christmas Eve in 1822 – maybe the moonlight on the snow gave the “lustre of midday to objects below.” Moore later explained that the poem was a trifle, written only for the pleasure of his family. After years of rumors, he accepted authorship in 1844 upon publication of a book of poems.

Livingston is a more obscure historical figure. A gentleman farmer who lived midway between New York City and Troy in Poughkeepsie, he had many interests. One was writing light verse in anapest – two short syllables followed by a long stressed one. The famous example, of course, is: ‘Twas the NIGHT before CHRISTmas.

Livingston’s proponents believe he composed the poem before 1808 for his family. The big problem with their case is the lack of evidence that Livingston ever claimed credit before his death in 1828.

“I don’t think Henry ever needed to be acknowledged,” said Mary Van Deusen, a descendant of Livingston. “The more you read his work, the more you realize the man was so contented in himself.”

Van Deusen drew fresh attention to her cause by persuading literary detective Don Foster to investigate. The Vassar College English professor examines texts for clues to authorship, most famously when he unmasked journalist Joe Klein as the author of “Primary Colors” during the Clinton administration.

Foster devotes a chapter to the debate in his 2000 book, “Author Unknown,” and concludes that Moore was more Scrooge than jolly elf. Moore wrote poems, though often with a finger-wagging tone. Consider his take on fun-loving girls of Manhattan: “Shame! shame! heart-rending thought! deep-sinking stain … arts first taught by prostitutes of France!”

h hhhhhhhhhhhh

Clement Clarke Moore 1779 ~ 1863

clip_image003Moore was born on July 15, 1779, in a large mansion, on his parents’ Chelsea estate that encompassed the area that is now 18th to 24th Streets between Eighth and Tenth Avenues in Manhattan. The house itself was located at what is now Eighth Avenue and West 23rd Street. He was the only child of heiress Charity Clarke and Dr. Benjamin Moore, Episcopal Bishop of New York, Rector of Trinity Church, and President of Columbia College. Moore was educated at home in his early youth and graduated first in his class from Columbia in 1798.

He became a well-known and respected scholar and, typical for an educated person of his period, Moore’s publications related to a wide variety of topics such as religion, languages, politics, and poetry.

When he wrote A Visit from St. Nicholas in 1822, Moore was a Professor of Oriental andclip_image004 Greek Literature, as well as Divinity and Biblical Learning, at the General Theological Seminary of the Protestant Episcopal Church. Located on land donated by the “Bard of Chelsea” himself, the seminary still stands today on Ninth Avenue between 20th and 21st Streets, in an area known as Chelsea Square. Moore’s connection with that institution continued for over twenty-five years.

At the age of thirty, he compiled a Hebrew lexicon, the first work of its kind in America. He was forty-three when he wrote A Visit from St. Nicholas, but it was not until he was sixty-five, in 1844, that he first acknowledged that he was the author of the famous verses by including the poem in a small book of his poetry entitled Poems, which he had published at the request of his children. He translated Juvenal, edited his father’s sermons, wrote treatises and political pamphlets, including his well-known 1804 attack on our third president in Observations Upon Certain Passages in Mr. Jefferson’s Notes on Virginia, Which Appear to Have a Tendency to Subvert Religion and Establish a False Philosophy, and was often a contributor to the editorial pages of local newspapers. He also wrote George Castriot, Surnamed Scanderbeg, King of Albania, which appeared in 1852 and was highly commended at the time.

Despite this scholarship, it was the simple but magical poem about the mysterious Christmas Eve visitor that has kept the memory of Clement Clarke Moore alive. Although he was embarrassed for most of his life that his scholarly works were overshadowed by what he publicly considered a frivolous poem, Moore will forever be remembered as the person who truly gave St. Nicholas to the world. The poet of Christmas Eve lived a long and productive life and died in Newport, Rhode Island, his summer home, on July 10, 1863, just a few days short of his eighty-fourth birthday. Along with members of his family, he is buried in the Washington Heights area of New York City, in Trinity Cemetery at the Church of the Intercession on Upper Broadway at 155th Street.

The Poem That Saved Christmas

cccccccccccccccThe Poem That Saved Christmas (well, almost): Of all the classic Christmas readings, this poem probably has the most colorful history. We know when it was first published, but there is some controversy about who actually wrote it in the first place. That said, the poem reshaped our nation’s view of St.Nicholas, and even helped the celebration of Christmas, at a time when the holiday had been drifting into neglect and even disrepute.

By the time that the Troy Sentinel first published this poem anonymously in 1823, Christmas celebrations were in some decline. In some circles, year-end parties had become so raucous that Christmas was no longer really a “family” holiday. In other, more religous circles, some wanted to wipe out, not only the raucous year-end celebrations, but also Christmas itself, which was “guilty by association.” Even poor St. Nicholas was not the cheerful, red-robed, chubby soul that we imagine today – rather he often dressed in brown or green, was relatively slender, and was as likely to dole out punishment as gifts.

The poem’s clever verse and fresh view of “St. Nick” were well-received. “A Visit from St. Nicholas” was republished anonymously several more times before 1937, when it was first published under the name of Clement Clarke Moore, a well-known clergyman.

In the meantime, another prominent family, the Livingstons had always understood that their father and grandfather, Major Henry Livingstone had written the poem. After learning that Moore had claimed credit for the poem, several generations of Livingston’s heirs tried to “set the record straight.” In recent years, they have drawn at least one well-known expert to their side. Still, most current publications follow the tradition of giving Clement C. Moore credit for the work.

clip_image006On the other hand, there is no controversy about the success of the poem. Many believe that the poem eventually changed the way Americans thought about St. Nicholas, and even about Christmas. From the first publication, the poem’s refreshing approach, cheerful imagery, and memorable lines caught the imagination of young and old. Within a generation, the American public’s image of “St.Nick” had begun to evolve toward something like the plump, reindeer-driving, red-gowned, universally cheerful icon we know as Santa Claus. And Christmas had begun to be something more like the family-oriented holiday we think of today.

The poem is still fresh; except for references to shutters and other things we don’t use so much anymore, “A Visit from St. Nicholas” could have been written in our lifetimes, instead of nearly two centuries ago. In fact, Dr. Suess used the same rythm in much of his poetry, including “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”

Even the authorship controversy has generated some very positive “side effects.” During their many hours of research, the Livingstone heirs have studied just about every version of the poem that was published between 1823 and 1917, adding to a wealth of knowledge on related subjects.

Read aloud, and enjoy!

A Visit From St. Nicholas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, clip_image010
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick, clip_image012


I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On Cupid! On, Donder and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!

clip_image014As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

 

clip_image016

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes — how they twinkled! His dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,


clip_image018And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, clip_image020
And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”

My Christmas Wish For You

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun
I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer
May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you’ve been given
To be more than what you sought
May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold
I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..

With Love And Blessings at Christmas,

Charlie Farricielli

Inspirational Quotations: Happy Thanksgiving

Inspirational Quotations:Happy Thanksgiving

  ggggggggggIt can sometimes be difficult to find reasons to be thankful this time of year. Thousands of men and women are serving their country in a foreign land, while their children and loved ones remain home. I can only imagine how a child would feel who has to celebrate the Holidays wondering if daddy is ok or coming home soon. It must really be bad for the servicemen who have baby’s born that they have never seen, or had a chance to cuddle. The rich smell of a Christmas tree can not compare to the sweet smell of a baby.
There are others who are hungry and hear the sounds of their child’s belly rumble. This not only happens during the holiday season but all year long. Many people are homeless and jobless. The price of food, shelter and gas continue to rise, and wages are not getting any higher. Many will feel the wicked cold this winter season and may even wonder what brought them to this place of redolence. Soup kitchens and shelters will feel the pinch of not having enough room for everyone. I can not imagine what it must feel like to turn someone away from a warm bed, and a meal.
I am so thankful for all that I have received. A wonderful family  and healthy children. At night I have a warm bed and plenty of food. I complain about the cost of gas but I do not do without.

  So I wanted to write this blog to help you to vision the gratitude and appreciation this holiday! Enjoy the following words.

With love and blessings, From all of us …. IamCured.com

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude.  ~E.P. Powell

So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.
~Arthur Guiterman, The First Thanksgiving

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.  ~Edward Sandford Martin

Our rural ancestors, with little blest,
Patient of labour when the end was rest,
Indulged the day that housed their annual grain,
With feasts, and off’rings, and a thankful strain.
~Alexander Pope

What we’re really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets.  I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?  ~Erma Bombeck, “No One Diets on Thanksgiving,” 26 November 1981

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.  ~W.J. Cameron

Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare.  They are consumed in twelve minutes.  Half-times take twelve minutes.  This is not coincidence.  ~Erma Bombeck

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

An optimist is a person who starts ggggggga new diet on Thanksgiving Day.  ~Irv Kupcinet

As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
~George Herbert

Ah! on Thanksgiving day….
When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.
What moistens the lips and what brightens the eye?
What calls back the past, like the rich pumpkin pie?
~John Greenleaf Whittier

Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths.  At whatever straws we must grasp, there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings.  ~J. Robert Moskin

There is one day that is ours.  There is one day when all we Americans who are not self-made go back to the old home to eat saleratus biscuits and marvel how much nearer to the porch the old pump looks than it used to.  Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American.  ~O. Henry

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.  ~Theodore Roosevelt 

Thanksgiving is the holiday of peace, the celebration of work and the simple life… a true folk-festival that speaks the poetry of the turn of the seasons, the beauty of seedtime and harvest, the ripe product of the year – and the deep, deep connection of all these things with God.  ~Ray Stannard Baker (David Grayson)

Heap high the board with plenteous cheer and gather to the feast,
And toast the sturdy Pilgrim band whose courage never ceased.
~Alice W. Brotherton

On Thanksgiving Day, all over America, families sit down to dinner at the same moment – halftime.  ~Author Unknown

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaDear Lord; we beg but one boon more:
Peace in the hearts of all men living,
peace in the whole world this Thanksgiving.
~Joseph Auslander

On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence.  ~William Jennings Bryan

It is literally true, as the thankless say, that they have nothing to be thankful for.  He who sits by the fire, thankless for the fire, is just as if he had no fire.  Nothing is possessed save in appreciation, of which thankfulness is the indispensable ingredient.  But a thankful heart hath a continual feast.  ~W.J. Cameron

Lord, ’tis Thy plenty-dropping hand
That soils my land,
And giv’st me for my bushel sowne
Twice ten for one.
All this, and better, Thou dost send
Me, to this end,
That I should render, for my part,
A thankful heart.
~Robert Herrick

But see, in our open clearings, how golden the melons lie;
Enrich them with sweets and spices, and give us the pumpkin-pie!

Coexistence:  what the farmer does with the turkey – until Thanksgiving.  ~Mike Connolly

Thanksgiving is possible only for those who take time to remember; no one can give thanks who has a short memory.  ~Author Unknown

God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart.  ~Izaak Walton

I have strong doubts that the first Thanksgiving even remotely resembled the “history” I was told in second grade.  But considering that (when it comes to holidays) mainstream America’s traditions tend to be over-eating, shopping, or getting drunk, I suppose it’s a miracle that the concept of giving thanks even surfaces at all.  ~Ellen Orleans

Thanksgiving, man.  Not a good day to be my pants.  ~Kevin James

Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now.  ~A.W. Tozer

Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.  ~Seneca

Happy We-Stole-Your-Land-and-Killed-Your-People Day!  ~Thanksgiving toast, from the movie Sweet November

O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.
~William Shakespeare

None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude.  Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy.  ~Fred De Witt Van Amburgh

ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffHem your blessings with thankfulness so they don’t unravel.  ~Author Unknown

The funny thing about Thanksgiving, or any huge meal, is that you spend 12 hours shopping for it and then chopping and cooking and braising and blanching.  Then it takes 20 minutes to eat it and everybody sort of sits around in a food coma, and then it takes four hours to clean it up.  ~Ted Allen

And though I ebb in worth, I’ll flow in thanks.  ~John Taylor

The thing I’m most thankful for right now is elastic waistbands.  ~Author Unknown

For, after all, put it as we may to ourselves, we are all of us from birth to death guests at a table which we did not spread.  The sun, the earth, love, friends, our very breath are parts of the banquet…. Shall we think of the day as a chance to come nearer to our Host, and to find out something of Him who has fed us so long?  ~Rebecca Harding Davis

Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.  ~Aesop

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.  ~William Arthur Ward

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
~Author Unknown

Gluttony and surfeiting are no proper occasions for thanksgiving.  ~Charles Lamb, 1821

But whether we have less or more,
Always thank we God therefor.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.  ~Melody Beattie

Thanksgiving-day, I fear,
If one the solemn truth must touch,
Is celebrated, not so much
To thank the Lord for blessing o’er,
As for the sake of getting more!
~Will Carleton

I love Thanksgiving turkey.  It’s the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts.  ~Arnold Schwarzenegger

For hearts that are kindly, with virtue and peace, and not seeking blindly a hoard to increase; for those who are grieving o’er life’s sordid plan; for souls still believing in heaven and man; for homes that are lowly with love at the board; for things that are holy, I thank thee, O Lord!  ~Walt Mason

It is delightfully easy to thank God for the grace we ourselves have received, but it requires great grace to thank God always for the grace given to others.  ~James Smith

When our perils are past, shall our gratitude sleep?  ~George Canning

Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday.  People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year.  And then discover once a year is way too often.  ~Johnny Carson

Thanksgiving is so called because we are all so thankful that it only comes once a year.  ~P. J. O’Rourke

xxxxxThanksgiving Day, a function which originated in New England two or three centuries ago when those people recognized that they really had something to be thankful for – annually, not oftener – if they had succeeded in exterminating their neighbors, the Indians, during the previous twelve months instead of getting exterminated by their neighbors, the Indians.  Thanksgiving Day became a habit, for the reason that in the course of time, as the years drifted on, it was perceived that the exterminating had ceased to be mutual and was all on the white man’s side, consequently on the Lord’s side; hence it was proper to thank the Lord for it and extend the usual annual compliments.  ~Mark Twain

We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.  ~Albert Barnes

Thanksgiving is nothing if not a glad and reverent lifting of the heart to God in honor and praise for His goodness.  ~Robert Casper Lintner

Got no check books, got no banks.  Still I’d like to express my thanks – I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night.  ~Irving Berlin

If you count all your assets, you always show a profit.  ~Robert Quillen

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.  ~W.T. Purkiser

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.  ~Meister Eckhart

Thanksgiving Feasting

When the Halloween pumpkins are gone,
And the leaves have all fallen to ground,
When the air has turned windy and cold,
Then Thanksgiving will soon be around.

Thoughts of loved ones all feasting together,
Pleasant pictures from past times appear
To dwell in each heart and each mind–
Then Thanksgiving is finally here!

The kitchen has scrumptious aromas,
The dining room looks oh, so fine,
Decorations with pilgrims and turkeys,
And now we are ready to dine!

First the napkins are placed on our laps;
Now the prayer for the meal to be blessed,
Then we stuff the good food in our tummies,
And we hope for it all to digest!

These free Thanksgiving Day poems bring up thoughts of, well…thankfulness, as this Thanksgiving Day verse does.

More Than A Day

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxAs Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we’re poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.

We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We’re wealthy, when push comes to shove.

So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you’ve got;
Realize it’s a lot,
And you’ll make all your cares go away.

Thanksgiving poetry can include a list of things to be thankful for. This inspirational Thanksgiving poem shows that basic, simple pleasures are often the best ones. It’s a thankful Thanksgiving poem.

Thanksgiving Delights

On Thanksgiving Day we’re thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.

For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.

We’re grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.

The list of all we’re grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!

More and more, people want to send Thanksgiving greetings to the people they care about. Thanksgiving poetry is designed for that, so this free verse (no rhyming) Happy Thanksgiving poem will be nice in a card or along with a Thanksgiving gift. It could also be used as a friend or friendship Thanksgiving poem or a family Thanksgiving poem.

I’m Thankful for You

Thanksgiving is the appointed time
for focusing on the good in our lives.
In each of our days,
we can find small blessings,
but too often we overlook them,
choosing instead to spend our time
paying attention to problems.
We give our energy
to those who cause us trouble
instead of those who bring peace.
Starting now,
let’s be on the lookout
for the bits of pleasure in each hour,
and appreciate the people who
bring love and light to everyone
who is blessed to know them.
You are one of those people.
On Thanksgiving,
I’m thankful for you.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Song

Here’s a Thanksgiving poem that is also a Thanksgiving song and a Thanksgiving prayer—a three-in-one! You could print our the lyrics on little pieces of paper and put them next to each plate so you could all sing it together before dinner.

The song is to the public domain melody most familiar to those who celebrate Thanksgiving Day: We Gather Together (to ask the Lord’s blessing). You can find it in any protestant hymn book. Remember that although it’s fine to sing the melody, any arrangement of harmony parts and accompaniment may be under copyright. If so, there will probably be a copyright notice at the bottom of the page, but it is always your responsibility to check that out.

Thanksgiving Dinner Poem, Song and Prayer

Our table is set now; great food you can bet now.
It’s Thanksgiving Day, and we’re ready to eat;
All those near and dear us are here today to cheer us.
This dinner is a winner, a wonderful treat.

It’s time to be thankful for all that God gives us;
Dear Lord, we are grateful; Dear God, hear our prayer.
It’s You we are praising; our voices we are raising;
Bless us and bless this food; keep us safe in your care.

By Joanna Fuchs

Thanksgiving poetry often centers on the pleasures of friends and loved ones, as this Thanksgiving Day poem does.

Most of All

download (2)Thanksgiving Day brings to mind
the blessings in our lives
that usually go unnoticed:
a home that surrounds us
with comfort and protection;
delicious food, for pleasure
in both eating and sharing;
clothes to snuggle up in,
books and good entertainment
to expand our minds;
and freedom to worship our God.
Most of all we are thankful
for our family and friends,
those treasured people
who make our lives extra special.
You are part of that cherished group.
On Thanksgiving, (and every day)
we appreciate you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day poetry is often about the special foods eaten on that holiday. This Thanksgiving rhyme includes dishes familiar to many.

Save Room

As meals go, Thanksgiving dinner
Is always a feast–a five star winner.
Here comes the salad, dressed just right,
The golden brown turkey–a savory delight;

The stuffing now, and then the gravy,
The jello mold, all wiggly and wavy.
Take some cranberry sauce and candied yams;
Is there room for fresh made rolls and jams?

More dishes tempt me; ah, but I
Must save some room for pumpkin pie!

Thanks giving poems should evoke the special memories of holidays past, the whole special Thanksgiving process, as this thanks giving poem does.

banner6Thanksgiving is…

Thanksgiving is anticipation…
the excitement of wonderful aromas,
golden, harvest-themed décor,
the best linens, china and silver.
Thanksgiving is…
platters of of special Thanksgiving foods
prepared only once a year,
mmn…mmn… mouths watering,
ecstatic taste buds quivering with joy.
Thanksgiving is…
the family all around the table,
clean, dressed, smiles all around,
recitation of what we are thankful for,
the saying of grace,
our special Thanksgiving prayer.
And now, finally, dig in!
We are thinking of you
at Thanksgiving, and hoping
your Thanksgiving experience
will be surrounded
by a special glow in your memory.

You’ve Made A Difference

As Thanksgiving Day approaches,
Our blessings we recall;
The things we are most thankful for,
We recollect them all.

You are really special,
In all you say and do.
You’ve made a difference in our lives;
We’re thankful now for you.

Friendship Thanksgiving poetry for greeting cards has to be short enough to fit, so this Thanksgiving rhyme, which is a friend or friendship Thanksgiving poem, is short and fond. If you are sending this as a couple, change the last stanza to read “our friends,” “our lives,” and “what we’re thankful for.”

Thanksgiving Friends

Thanksgiving is a time
For reviewing what we treasure,
The people we hold dear,
Who give us so much pleasure.

Without you as my friend,
Life would be a bore;
Having you in my life
Is what I’m thankful for.

By Joanna Fuchs

This Thanksgiving Day poem is a reminder to be thankful every day.

Thanksgiving Every Day

The table is brimming with good things to eat;
We’re surrounded by family and friends; what a treat.
The feelings that fill us today can’t be beat;
It’s Thanksgiving Day, and it all feels complete.

But other days, sometimes things don’t seem so fine;
Those days are not polished and don’t seem to shine.
It’s then in our minds, we forget all the good,
And think of the things we would get, if we could.

On days when our thinking causes us dread,
If we could remember, it’s all in our head,
And not let our minds take our gratitude away,
Then we’d make every day like Thanksgiving Day.

By Karl Fuchs

Thanksgiving Day poems often center around family gatherings; This family Thanksgiving poem could also be used for a young child saying Thanksgiving grace.

A Family Thanksgiving

Mom and Dad And all the folks
Who sit around the table,
All give thanks to the Lord above
For the fact that we are able
To have the food and shelter
We all need to survive,
And have the love of family
That makes it good to be alive.

By Karl Fuchs

That’s she’s about to cook!

By Karl Fuchs

The counting and rhythm of this kid Thanksgiving poem makes it easy to memorize. It’s a Thanksgiving turkey poem.

Countdown To Thanksgiving

A turkey in a tree;
Four five six,
That turkey’s in a fix;

It always tastes so fine;
When we get to ten
It’s Thanksgiving once again.

By Karl Fuchs

Hooray for Thanksgiving,
There’s so much to eat!

Funny Thanksgiving Poems

Funny Thanksgiving poetry often centers on food, as this funny Thanksgiving poem does.

Thanksgiving Ghost

The last piece of apple pie is gone;
How did it disappear?
The bowl of delicious stuffing
Has also vanished, I fear.

It happens each Thanksgiving,
When leftover goodies flee,
And each of us knows the responsible one
Couldn’t be you or me.

The only way it could happen
Is readily diagnosed;
It must be the crafty, incredibly sneaky,
Still hungry Thanksgiving ghost.

By Karl Fuchs

Funny Thanksgiving poems can be about cooking the special feast. This humorous Thanksgiving poem is a joke about how our modern “gourmet” feasts are often prepared elsewhere. It could qualify as a funny Thanksgiving Day poem.

Your Secret’s Secure

Thanksgiving’s the time in November each year
When our thoughts about food seem to richen,
When turkey and dressing and other good stuff
Is being prepared in the kitchen.

But the stores did their homework way in advance;
They know what your real needs will be;
They know you’ll come shopping to buy up their best,
And those sharing your feast will soon see…

You’re the best cook in town, a peerless gourmet,
The turkey, dessert and the wine;
And your secret’s secure that this feast was all made
By your grocery, and they sure did it fine!

Funny Thanksgiving poetry about overeating is common, so here’s a funny Thanksgiving poem about the “Belly Stuffer.”

Belly Stuffer

Thanksgiving brings a terrible chore,
‘Cause I’m forced to eat and eat some more.
If I don’t eat it up right down to dessert,
I fear the cook’s feelings will surely be hurt,
So I do my part, even though I suffer;
To be a good guest, I’m a belly stuffer.

My Christmas Wish For You

My Christmas Wish For You

 

imagesCA5SMEYL

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one


For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun


I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year


Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer


 

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot


May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought


May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old


May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold


I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true


May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..

With love and blessings
