The Feel of Christmas

Every day is a celebration day
But on this day, it’s a Special Day;
the feel is just not ordinary

Every day is a merry-making day
But on this day, it’s in itself a Merry Day;
the feel is just not a ‘’normally’’

Every day is a reflection day
But on this day, it’s a Stand-out, Sober-Reflection day;
the feel is just not temporarily 

Every day is a gift-exchange day
But on this day, it’s a memorable Boxing Day;
the feel is just not materially

Every day is a should-be ‘’Christmas’’ day
But on this day, it’s actually a Christmas Day!
the feel is just not a mere Christmas frenzy!
