JUDGE COMMENTS: "A simply delightful poem about Christmas with wonderful imagery! It flows smoothly with rhyme and rhythm throughout and has excellent grammar and punctuation. It smoothly reveals the spirit of the season reflected in shops, neighbourhoods and family. The one time of year when the beautiful decorations brighten and cheer society and families come together; it comes across so well to the reader!

This IS Christmas. The spiritual and the temporal blessings flow in perfect harmony in this poem. Congratulations to the author for this wonderful Christmas poem."
