Elf, Santa, and…Jesus :)

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

And on goes the story about Christmas Eve

And the jolly old man in whom we believe.

Have you even wondered how Santa came to be?

So important to Christmas and to you and to me?

Well, it all began a long time ago

The night before Christ to earth was to go.

All prepared to make Christ’s birth well announced

With angels and music and anthems pronounced

But alas, all had forgotten in the final rush

How just to make Christ’s birthday remembered to us.

The kingdom was searched for the most excellent plan

That would help us remember Gods gift to man.

A saintly old fellow, so jolly and gay

Came up with the best plan that was offered that day.

He said, “Send a fellow each year at this time

Who would help people be happy and comfort their minds.

E could help man remember that God loves us so

By bringing presents to both friend and foe.

He would show by example that true love and joy

Come when God’s love is shared with each girl and  each boy.

So from the first Christmas right down to today,

When one heard the bells jingling and saw the big sleigh,

They knew it was Santa making his way

To remind the world of the love Jesus gave.

So this night before Christmas when you hear Santa come,

Remember he’s doing it for the love of God’s son

Remember that he teaches a did Christ of old

That to give of oneself is more precious than gold.

 

Isn’t that just cute? 🙂 I don’t know who wrote it and the site I found it on also says it’s unknown. There are other printables, in different fonts and themes, but this is how I made this one! Are you wondering how you can let your little ones have some fun this Christmas with the Elf, but you also want them to remember the reason we celebrate Christmas? This printable is so sweet to add to your Elf Shenanigans.

I think my plan is (besides ever-growing) to do North Pole Breakfast on December 1st, per our annual tradition (you’ll have to wait to see what our theme is this year!!), plus a couple of other new traditions thrown in! I am going to print this out and give it to them on either December 1st after breakfast or on the day we write our wishlists.
