    Beautiful Christmas Poems for Kids to Recite

    Practice Jesus

    This Christmas poem for kids by Joanna Fuchs, about Jesus is a testament to and a celebration of the birth of Christ!

    If we practiced Jesus every way,
    It'd be like Christmas every day;
    If we, like Him, were meek and mild
    And loved each woman, man and child,
    If we'd read our Bible, it'd remind us,
    So that every single day would find us
    More and more in sweet accord
    With our sweet Jesus - Master, Lord.
    Then every day that we're alive
    Would be like December 25.

    Christmas in the Heart

    As winter holidays approach, Christmas fills our streets, homes and hearts with joy and cheer. Here's a poem symbolic of the spirit of the season.

    It is Christmas in the mansion,
    Yule-log fires and silken frocks;
    It is Christmas in the cottage,
    Mother’s filling little socks.
    It is Christmas on the highway,
    In the thronging, busy mart;
    But the dearest truest Christmas
    Is the Christmas in the heart.

    The Funniest Face 

    Humourous and fun to recite, this Christmas poem for kids has a great rhyme and is ideal for young children as it’s easy to learn!

    The funniest face 
    Looked out at me 
    From a silver ball
    On the Christmas Tree!
    At first I thought 
    It was Santa’s elf,
    But I looked again and
    It was just myself!

    Mom Is Making Christmas

    Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without mothers who selflessly devote themselves all year round to make every day feel special! This poem by Vicky A. Luong is an ode to all mommies.

    Cookies baking in the kitchen-
    The smell floats through the air;
    Mom is making Christmas
    With her usual merry flair
    The house she gaily decorated,
    Each gift she stitched with love,
    And we'll gather around the Christmas tree
    For an evening of old-fashioned fun
    This evening she'll sing a carol for us
    With her angel's voice.
    Yes, Mom is making Christmas-
    A true reason to rejoice.

    Christmas Gift 

    One of the most exciting parts of Christmas is unwrapping all the presents everyone brings you! Here is a poem by Maureen on the best Christmas gift you can give someone you love.

    The gifts I’d leave beneath your tree, 
    Aren’t those that you can touch or see, 
    Not wrapped in Christmas tissue gay 
    But gifts to bless you every day 
    The gift of friendship warm and true,
    Is one that I would leave for you 
    Good health and happiness and cheer 
    To keep you smiling through the year 
    The gift of peace that comes from God, 
    With prayer to guide each path you trod 
    And when your heart has lost its song 
    The gift of hope to cheer you on 
    These are the gifts I’d leave for you

    Let Every Day Be Christmas

    Norman W. Brooks’ short and easy Christmas poem is not only fun to recite, but will also help you get over Christmas blues by reminding you that – while Christmas maybe over, you can carry on the spirit of the festival throughout the year!

    Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
    For loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
    Like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
    The good you do for others is good you do yourself.

    Santa Claus

    The ol’ man that delivers presents and happiness aplenty, this poem explains the meaning of ‘Santa Claus’ in a very special way!

    S stands for stockings we hang up so high. 
    A is for all we get if we don’t cry. 
    N is for nobody he will pass by. 
    T is for to-morrow, the day we eat pie. 
    A stands for at last old Santa is nigh. 
    C for the children who love him so well. 
    L for the little girl, his name she can spell. 
    A stands for apples so rosy and red. 
    U is for us as we wait for his sled. 
    S stands for Santa Claus, who comes in the night 
    when we are tucked up in bed with our eyes closed so tight!

    The Day Before Christmas

    This short poem talks about the anticipation of Christmas, that builds up to its peak around Christmas eve. Enjoy this one on the night before Christmas!

    We have been helping with the cake,
    And licking out the pan,
    And wrapping up our packages,
    As neatly as we can.
    We have hung our stockings up,
    Beside the open grate.
    And now there’s nothing more to do,
    Except                                                                                                                                                              To   

    A Chubby Snowman

    While Christmas is all about cold and coloourful winter nights, the daytime can get pretty dull. However, snowfall can make the daytime quite exciting! This poem talks about the poor snowman’s plight, as he loses his nose to a bunny!

    A chubby little snowman
    had a carrot nose.
    Along came a bunny,
    and what do you suppose?
    That hungry little bunny,
    looking for some lunch,
    Grabbed that snowman’s nose,
    Nibble, nibble, crunch!

    Advice From Poor Robin’s Almanac

    This poem will be good to teach your children to always share, be humble, and spare more than just a thought for those not as fortunate as them. For true joy is in giving, isn’t it?

    Now that the time has come wherein 
    Our Savior Christ was born, 
    The larder’s full of beef and pork, 
    The granary’s full of corn,
    As God hath plenty to thee sent, 
    Take comfort of thy labors, 
    And let it never thee repent 
    To feed thy needy neighbors.

    Christmas Lights

    The true magic of Christmas can be felt only at night when the sky turns dark, and the Christmas lights turn on! Marie Irish’s poem describes the beauty or Christmas lights, and how everything looks pretty around Christmas!

    Bright Christmas stars shine on high,
    Golden stars in the wint’ry sky;
    Christmas candles in windows bright
    Send s greeting into the night;
    While in our hearts the Christmas flame,
    Glows with a love like his who came,
    The infant Christ of lowly birth,
    To bring good will and peace to earth.

    Snowman Blues

    Such is life that many of our family relatives are in different cities or countries these days, and we may not always have all our loved ones under the same roof anymore! Paul Curtis beautifully captures the bittersweet joy of waiting for someone to arrive home for Christmas.

    Out of the snowy lawn
    The snowman grew
    Wearing a hat and scarf
    The way that you do
    With pebbles for eyes
    pressed into the snow
    A smiley twig mouth
    And a large carrot nose
    He’s a magnificent site
    The snowman that grew
    But he’s just snow and ice
    And no substitute for you
    I wish you were here
    To chase the blues away
    I wish you’d come back
    To me for Christmas day

    So what if every day is not filled with toys and gifts like Christmas? We can still greet people with smiles and live each day to the fullest as if it were Christmas! Christmas poems remind young and old alike of the happiness and fun associated with the festival. As the day draws near, get together and have the kids regale you with their recitations.
