True Christian Christmas

Christmas isn't showy gifts
 Or glittering decoration;
 It's honoring our Savior, Jesus Christ
 In humble adoration.

It's serving those less fortunate,
 Meeting their needs before our own;
 It's making sure at Christmas time
 That no one is alone.

It's taking what we would have spent
 On things that no one needs,
 And using it to help someone
 With service and good deeds.

Our Savior showed us how to live
 With charity, faith and service.
 It makes the holidays a joy,
 More peaceful, and less nervous.

So let's remember Christmas is
 About our Savior's birth;
 That's the way to happiness,
 The way to peace on earth.

Religious Christmas poems are very popular. This Christian Christmas poem reminds us why we celebrate. 

Jesus Is The Reason

In Bethlehem, God gave to us
 The source of Christmas joy;
 A star shown on a miracle:
 The virgin birth of a boy.

He was born both God and man,
 A Savior for us all,
 The way to get to our heavenly home,
 If we just heed His call.

So as we shop and spend and wrap
 And enjoy the Christmas season,
 Let's keep in mind the sacred truth:
 Jesus is the reason.

It's time to stop the rampant materialism and be better role models for our children, says this Christian Christmas poem. It's 

Christian Christmas poem Real Joy in white text on maroon background with white stars.

Real Joy

What is Christmas without Jesus Christ?
It's a holiday full of stuff.
Money and stress, teaching kids greed,
Some people are saying "Enough!"

"Love one another," our Savior said.
It's all about love, not things.
Let's teach our children to serve, and create
The real joy the true Christmas brings.

Christian Christmas poetry can explain a bit of Christmas history, as this religious Christian poem does.

Why We Celebrate

Why do we celebrate
 Jesus’ birth at Christmas,
 though we don’t know
 when He was born?
 It was necessary and inevitable
 that we select a date
 to celebrate an eternal miracle--
 the coming to earth
 of God in human form...Jesus,
 Who changed the entire world
 with His message of love,
 forgiveness, humility and peace.
 Christmas is an obligatory
 and indispensable holiday
 marking the transformation
 from guiltless selfishness
 to striving to follow His example
 of service to God and our fellow man.
 That is worth celebrating.

Christian Christmas poetry can explain parts of Christianity. This Christian Christmas poem reminds us that the basis for Christmas is religious Christianity. The word "Christmas" refers to a Mass for Christ, a religious ritual. 

Why Do We Celebrate Christmas?

Why do we celebrate Christmas,
 A "Mass" for Christ, each year?
 Why do we shop and give out gifts,
 Basking in Christmas cheer?

Our joy is based in the Gospel,
 The amazing "good news" of Christ;
 We’re grateful for what He gave to us
 And all He sacrificed.

Priceless gifts He brought,
 Eternal life, and more,
 A perfect role model for all of us,
 He opened heaven’s door.

At Christmas time let’s be
 Reverent and devout,
 Celebrating a Christmas real and true:
 Jesus Christ is what it’s about.

A religious Christmas poem like this one gives a different focus to the holiday. This Christian Christmas poem is a recipe for stress relief. 

A Different Kind Of Christmas

Sometimes Christmas is just overwhelming, it seems,
 As we rush around buying up stuff.
 We spend without end, and we rack up those bills,
 But it feels like it's never enough.

So this Christmas, let's all take a different approach:
 Let's try to be more in accord
 With God's Christmas gift, the best one of all--
 Our sweet Jesus, our Savior, our Lord.

We'll be gentle and patient, and loving and kind,
 And we'll keep our priorities straight;
 The gifts of the Spirit, the gifts of the heart
 Are the ones that we'll all celebrate.

And our stress will decrease, and we'll feel more at peace,
 As we decorate, package, and trim;
 Our new Christmas will be a pure joy and delight,
 As we try to be much more like Him.

Religious Christmas poetry can give gentle advice. This Christian Christmas poem suggests how to make every day more like Christmas. 

Practice Jesus

If we practiced Jesus every way,
It'd be like Christmas every day;
If we, like Him, were meek and mild
And loved each woman, man and child,
If we'd read our Bible, it'd remind us,
So that every single day would find us
More and more in sweet accord
With our sweet Jesus--Master, Lord. 

Then every day that we're alive
Would be like December 25.

By Joanna Fuchs

This religious Christmas poem addresses the selfish materialism we sometimes see at Christmas time. It's religious Christmas poetry with a message.


If we would take just half the measure
 Of what we spend on Christmas pleasure
 To give to others who have less,
 Our love for Jesus we’d express.

What we spend on Christmas stuff
 (It's really way more than enough)
 To others can mean so much more
 Than trifles we often use it for.

The Bible tells us how to live;
 A frequent lesson we read is "give."
 It’s time to spread uncommon cheer;
 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

By Joanna Fuchs

A deep dive into Christmas history reveals Jesus, Jesus, nothing but Jesus and celebrating His birth. This Christian Christmas poem is about the real Christmas.

The Best Kind of Christmas

The best kind of Christmas
Would be peaceful, serene,
No chaos, no stress,
Just Jesus, pristine.

We’d worship and pray;
We’d help those in need,
To be like our savior,
And follow His lead.

By Joanna Fuchs

This Christian Christmas poem follows Jesus’ birth to its ultimate consequence: eternal life for us.

To Heaven’s Gate

Jesus’ birth was God’s first sign
We would be with Him, divine.
That is why we celebrate
This babe, who leads to heaven’s gate.

To you, whom we're often thinking of,
We send our Christian Christmas love.

We Celebrate Your Birth

Dear Lord, as we celebrate Your birth,
 let us remember that You are the true reason for Christmas.
 Let every sparkling light remind us how You illuminate our lives,
 a shining beacon to guide us in our thoughts and actions each day,
 and how You light us from within
 in the knowledge of Your love and truth.
 Let the Christmas trees, standing straight, tall, unbowed,
 remind us of Your uprightness, Your goodness, Your perfection,
 and Your refusal to bow to worldly temptations,
 no matter how great the challenge or trouble.
 Lord, as we feast on Christmas treats,
 let us remember that You are the sole provider
 of everything worth having, that all good things come from You.
 And as we enjoy our gifts, let us never forget
 that You are the greatest gift of all--our wonderful Savior,
 Counselor, Giver of an eternal life whose wonders we cannot imagine.
 So as we delight in Christmas, the happiest and brightest of holidays,
 let us remember there would be no Christmas without You, Lord,
 and let us our hearts be filled with joy, and love
 and thankfulness, this Christmas and all the ones to come.
 In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
