I wish we could see more support and celebration for the real reason for the season. And I'm heartened to see that you keep your tree up until Epiphany. I also don't put Baby Jesus in the manger until Christmas morning. Very nice poem.

Never doubt your ability to make art out of words. Your authors note should be edited, take away that self-doubt! This is an excellent piece and shows up everywhere on fanstory! Great job

'Christmas is over', is an extremely well-written and spiritually uplifting piece. It was a pleasure to both read and review this talented poet's work.
I look forward to seeing your next post.

The times are hectic up until Christmas Day itself, I've often wondered if the fuss is worth, God deserves all the accolades we can think of, but Christmas was never His creation, but it is a good opportunity to write about it. But I can understand the sad cleanup, when the lights go out. Well done, Mary, bless you and happy new year, blessings Roy

Very well done. It is hard to pack away the Christmas decorations, but thankfully we do not pack away the One that Christmas celebrates. We worship Him every day of the year. He is the reason for the season and for our lives.

What a great poem! It is always sad to take the tree down - that tree symbolizes the old tradition, the fun, the joy, the decorations, the spirit. But you bring out well that it's not just the tree that makes this holiday.

I like the spiritual content of this poem, the imagery, visuals and the artistic presentation.

Thank you for sharing - much enjoyed this one.

The author's words are interesting, creative and thought provoking.
I thought about how Christmas starts fading away. Yet the thoughts
of our Christmas joy, prayers and spirit live on. I enjoyed this poem
very much! Happy New Year!
