Family Christmas Poems

Family Joys

Christmas is filled with special joys,
And the very best of all
Is contemplating those dear to us,
And the memories we recall.

We often think at Christmas time
Of people, affectionately,
And we realize how blessed we are
To have you in our family.
(Poet – Joanna Fuchs)



They gave each of us a number
All of my family were there
Our neighbors and our friends
All were crammed together

We walked until we stumbled
Then crawled into cold rough wagons
Elbow to elbow we traveled for miles
But at least we were together

Yeah we are going inside now
Just follow those in front and hurry
Hold onto your brother’s hand
We don’t want to be separated

Screams of pain and putrid smells
We merge on towards the unknown
Crowd crushing us before and behind
Nowhere else to go but together

Together we are going in
To the fire, to the heat
Of Auschwitz, we will go
Silently as one person.
(Poet – Iris Deurmyer)


From Us To You

It’s Christmas time,
And I wish you well.
May the Lord bless you
With the best of health.

I hope the stockings are hung
And you’re filled with wonder.
There are so many surprises
For you to ponder.

May your children be merry
When Santa brings toys.
Some for the girls
And some for the boys.

I pray you to have food
And plenty to eat:
Turkey and gravy
And lots of sweets.

I hope your family’s there,
Friends and neighbors, too.
So merry Christmas
From all of us to all of you.

A Merry Christmas Wish for You

While you enjoy the gifts,
food, the sparkle of ornaments and lights,
feasting on favorite foods,
I wish this Christmas
would envelop you
in the special warmth
and rich contentment
the season brings.

I wish friends, family,
all those who love you
let you know how much they care,
so that you feel happily wrapped
in their affection.

I wish this Christmas
would be one you never forget,
a shining beacon in your memory
to light all of your days.
(By – Joanna Fuchs)


The Christmas Gift of Knowing You

The Christmas season fills our hearts with joy;
Bright, happy days bring special kinds of pleasure.
We’re wrapped in the excitement of it all,
The sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes we treasure.

Yet when we have some quiet time to think
About our finest blessings all year through,
We focus on our family and our friends,
And appreciate the gift of knowing you!
(By – Joanna Fuchs)


Special Family Memories

I have special family memories
Of when I was just a child
My family did things together
More often than once in a while

We would go to church together
Then afterward a Sunday drive
With roast beef and mashed potatoes
When back home we’d later arrive

We’d like to go to the movies on occasion
My mom, dad, brother, and me
I remember especially seeing Bambi
Although that was sad for me to see

But family is so important
It creates a special bond
I have many family memories
Of which I’m so terribly fond!
(Poet – Marilyn Lott)

Family Christmas Poems

The Old Family Album

The old family album
Once was prominently displayed
With its cover of red velvet
Trimmed in gleaming silken braid.

Every parlor had a table
Filled with shells and a paperweight,
And the album of your ancestors
Anchored like a ship of state.

There were old tintypes of Grandma,
Aunts and uncles and cousins too…
And Grandpa with his cane and derby,
Fancy vest and button shoes.

Yes, the old family album
Once held its rightful place
In an old-fashioned parlor
Amid souvenirs and lace.

So if you’re tired of travel
And your world seems closing in…
Bring out the family album
With the tintypes of your kin.
(Poet – Ethel K. Gosney)


Christmas Time Together

For most, this time of year
Is ornaments, lights, and gifts.
People are out to shop,
Though snow may mass in drifts.

For me this time is different
From what others feel and see;
For me, it’s just more happiness
Full of you and me.

You fill my life with joy
Each moment that we share.
I’m thankful for the time with you;
Nothing can compare.

I want to make life good for you
In every way, I can.
You’ve been my own true love
Since our relationship began.

So I’m writing you this poem
To help you to feel my love;
We can be this way forever,
With help from up above.
(By – Karl and Joanna Fuchs)


Merry Christmas

We’re wishing you a Christmas
Full of laughter, love, and light,
With delicious holiday foods
To excite your appetite.

We’re hoping you receive
Delightful gifts to make you smile,
With family and friends
To love you all the while.

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
May your Christmas dreams come true,
And when Christmas is over,
(By – Joanna Fuchs)


Christmas Is A Time…

Christmas is a time when you’re with your family
to appreciate everything you have and your life;
parents, uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters, kids, and wife
Christmas is a time when Santa comes for the kids
and brings them everything they ask for on their wish list
Christmas is a time where your kids get happy before they go to sleep
you can’t wait to see the looks on their faces
when they open the presents they get to keep;
Christmas is a time where there are beautiful lights,
stockings, mistletoe’s, snowflakes, and a Christmas tree
I wonder how this Christmas will be for me!
(Poet – Kathy)


To Me What Family is…

Family to me has many meanings
For all are full of diverse feelings
Love and anger, both within a single one
Children who stay and children who run
Can one family be better than another?
It all depends on how they love each other
A family’s love should last forever
Bonds of love nothing can sever
For the family I have, I am happy and blessed
And nothing more truthful have I ever confessed
The family has many meanings, but one rises above
The greatest meaning of family is that of love
(Poet – Glaedr)


My Christmas Wish For You

Christmas trees, presents, and holly wreaths,
The feeling of love like a warm embrace,
Family and friends surrounding you,
With Christmas joy in each precious face.

That’s my wish for you for Christmas!
