What Christmas means to me by Judy Martin

What Christmas means to me


Fairy lights all twinkling

Baubles on the tree

Homemade decorations

That’s what Christmas means to me


Singing Christmas carols

Watching specials on TV

Playing games together

That’s what Christmas means to me


Families around the table

Goodwill and harmony

Sharing good times with others

That’s what Christmas means to me


It’s not just about the presents

Or the jolly festivities

It’s appreciating our blessings

That’s what Christmas means to me



Author Bio:

judy-in-the-gardenJudy Martin has just turned fifty and has entered a new phase in her life. She recently started work as an Associate Nurse in the community and loves it, finally finding her niche. She has in the past, done everything from serving as a soldier in the Women’s Royal Army Corps, to helping manage a kebab shop!

Judy has been writing humorous poems since she was a little girl. She has always had a love of words, and expressing herself through rhyme is so appealing. She enjoys the rhythm of the words as they dance to her tune.

She draws her inspiration from everyday events that most of us can relate to and puts her unique spin on it. Her large family is often her inspiration, as is the weather, the seasons,housework, even sex. No subject is safe from manipulation into verse!

Judy lives in the beautiful county of Kent with her long-suffering husband Bob, (Mr Grump), daughter Lucinda (Miss Hap), and not forgetting Roxy, the beautiful Cavalier King Charles spaniel.
