What I Learned From A Snowman
author unknown


It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy.
Hold your ground, even when the heat is on.
Wearing white is always appropriate.
Winter is the best of the four seasons.
It takes a few extra rolls to make a good mid-section.
There's nothing better than a foul weather friend.
The key to life is to be a jolly, happy soul.
We're all made up of mostly water.
You know you've made it when they write a song about you.
Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!
Avoid yellow snow.
Don't get too much sun.
It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet.
It's fun to hang out in your front yard.
There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.


The ABC's of Christmas
A is for Angels with halos so bright, whose carols were heard on that first Christmas night.
B is for Bells so merrily ringing, joy to the world is the message they're bringing.
C is for Candles that so brightly shine to give a warm welcome, to your friends and mine.
D is for Doorway with garlands of green, to make Christmas merry as far as they're seen.
E is for Evergreens, with fragrance so rare, so plentiful at Christmas, their scent fills the air.
F is for Fun the whole season long, from trimming the tree to singing a song.
G is for Greetings - a merry "hello" - with a heart full of love for people we know.
H is for Holly, with berries so red, to make into wreaths to hang overhead,
I is for Ice on snow covered hills, where sledding is fun along with the spills.
J is for Jesus, the Christ child so dear. We honor his birth on Christmas each year.
K is for Kris Kringle - so merrily he stands. He is who they call Santa in so many lands.
L is for Lanterns. I am sure that their light helped Mary and Joseph that first Christmas night.
M is for Mary, her heart full of love, for her little son Jesus, who came from above.
N is for Noel, the angels did sing, to herald the birth of Jesus, our King.
O is for Ornaments, so shining and bright, with lights on the tree to sparkle at night.
P is for Packages with ribbons so gay, all 'round the tree for our Christmas Day.
Q is for Quiet, Christmas Eve night, with snow covered hills glistening so bright.
R is for Reindeer who pull Santa's sleigh, to your house, to my house, they know the way.
S is for Shepherds who first saw the star over Bethlehem's manger and followed it far.
T is for Trees we decorate so gay; then wait for ole Santa to hurry our way.
U is for Universe, where Christmas brings joy to all in the world - to each girl and each boy.
V is for Visiting friends near and far. We travel by plane or by bus or by car.
W is for Wise Men, who brought gifts so rare, and knelt down and worshiped the child they found there.
X is for Xmas, or Christmas by full name. No matter the language, it all means the same.
Y is for Yule Logs, whose bright sparks fly high, to give a warm welcome to friends passing by.
Z is for Zeal we show at this time, in giving to others and loving mankind.
