(a song I wrote & sang for my kids when they were small...
I was doing an "acrostic" and didn't know it lol)
 
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S

C is for the Carpenter
tired and traveling miles
 
H is for the Humble virgin
heavy with child
 
R  is for the Rocky Road 
that led to Bethlehem
 
I  is for the Innkeeper 
who had "no room" for them
 
S is for the Stable 
over which a Star shone bright
 
T is for the Tiny King 
born there that holy night
 
M is for the Manger 
where he lay his little head
 
A is for the Animals 
that huddled 'round his bed
 
S is for the Swaddling clothes 
that kept our Savior warm
 
And from these small ingredients
the first Christmas was born.
