Can you feel it? Can you feel that chill in the air? I don’t know about you folks, but for me… it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! While I might not be brimming over with the holiday spirit this season, this is still my favorite time of the year. And, to begin the celebration here at JerseySmarts.com, we welcome back our resident poet – Joseph P. Martino. This time around, Mr. Martino shares some thoughts about Christmas time in New Jersey. Enjoy!
It’s Christmas time in New Jersey, come see and hear,
all the sights, sounds, glow and sparkling of lights so pretty
that comprise the heartbeat, rhythm and sparkle of our
big and wonderful and great cities, towns and villages throughout the garden state.
It’s Christmas time in New Jersey our cities, towns and villages,
are now all adorned in their most glorious dress,
as church elders prepare the baby Jesus creche.
Christmas trees on town halls, stores, homes, lawns and malls are all shining bright.
Gaily decorated in colored bells, tinsel, garlands, angels and lights, that glow and sparkle day and night,
boy oh boy what a magnificent and inspirational sight.
As Santa Clause makes out his Christmas list, making sure no girl or boys requested
toy will be forgot or missed. as Santa Claus extends his warm and welcoming cheerful Christmas
greeting to everyone throughout our great garden state.
Merry, Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to one and all.
For, it’s Christmas time in New Jersey.
