Little recitations like this are so great for the youngest of children to memorize and to recite before the congregation for a Christmas program. Children have a way of "stealing the show" when they get up there and recite them.
I agree with Dixie - its a great mnemonic to remember the meaning of Christmas.

Hi Sherry. This was very cute, but I wasn't sure when I saw it whether part of your entry was missing. Unfortunately, at 24 words, it was way under the minimum word count allowed for Challenge entries, and so had to be disqualified. Don't feel bad about missing the guidelines about this. There are always several members every week who make the same mistake. I hope you'll keep entering, but just keep in mind the limits - 150 minimum and 750 maximum. But it really is a delightful little poem all the same. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
