I found myself in an endless field of pine trees
with fresh snow on the ground
the air carried the scent of hollyberries and gingerbread
i was greeted with a smile
the festival lasted for many days
the laughter..
the lights..
I found it possible to subsist on warm chestnuts and egg nog..
Saint Nicholas himself was there
the big man himself,
in his miniver and scarlet
the fabled saint of yore
he took me up in the sled with him
and told me everything that I wanted to know
because we were in Christmas land
the place where the spirit of Christmas lives forever
where reindeers soar in the twilight
and all of the songs are sung
in a splendor once unknown
the bonfires were enchanting
the elves served an endless feast
and told stories of many things
as Rudolph licked my face
..the warm red glow of his nose in my eyes..
this is a world where Christmas never ended
where people are nice to each other
forever
this place is real, my friend
i never wanted to leave when I saw
one star proud shining over all of the others countless
but i knew I was to fly on
that Christmas
the year our dreams came true

I enjoyed this...it's not the usual Christmas-theme which makes it unique!
