The spirit of Christmas
I am thinking of you today because it is Christmas,
and I wish you happiness.
And tomorrow, because it will be the day after Christmas,
I shall still wish you happiness.
I may not be able to tell you about it every day, because I
may be far away or we may be very busy.
But that makes no difference -- my thoughts and my wishes
will be with you just the same.
Whatever joy or success comes to you will make me glad
clear through the year.
I wish you the spirit of Christmas.
Henry Van Dyke
