Christmas Is

Album: A Holly Dolly Christmas (2020)
  • Mmhmm
    Ah huh
    Mmhmm

    Christmas is a time for caring
    Being at your best
    Christmas is a time for sharing
    Knowing you've been blessed
    Christmas is a time for giving
    Love is made of this
    That's what Christmas is

    Christmas is a joyful time
    If you're the lucky ones
    Some are blessed with gifts and trinkets
    Others having none
    Some have feasts up on the table
    Others having crumbs
    There are the haves and the have nots
    And you could be either one

    It's all about kindness
    Love and compassion
    Better to give than receive
    That is a true fact
    But those who don't know that
    Well, they are the poorest indeed
    And I hope you remember every December
    That bright shining light from above
    The promise from God's lips
    The greatest of all gifts
    Wrapped up in His wonderous love (His wondrous love)
    So rejoice in His glory
    The great Christmas story
    And to all that you're sharing in will (uh huh)
    You go tell it with passion (oh)
    Of love everlasting (lasting)
    'Cause that's what Christmas is

    Is a time for caring
    Being at your best
    Christmas is a time for sharing
    Knowing you've been blessed
    Christmas is a time for giving
    Love is made of this
    That's what Christmas is

    Mmhmm, mmhmm, mmhmm

    That's what Christmas is Writer/s: Dolly Parton
