The True Meaning of Christmas
Music by Matt Glickstein
Lyrics by Jason Spraggins
Performances by the Lanai Academy of Performing Arts

Verse 1:
The traditions of Christmas
we hear every year
all the songs and the stories,
are things we hold dear...

Decorations and presents
the candles and snow
all the holly and ivy
and mistletoe ...
But there is something more...

Verse 2:
'Cause beyond all the planning,
the shopping, and cheer,
there's a meaning much greater
to this time of year.

The true meaning of Christmas
isn't under the tree.
It is found when we love
and we give selflessly...
when we love unselfishly.

Chorus:
As Christmas draws near,
we too often get lost
And Christmas is cold as a frost.
So let's remember and rise above...
'Cause the true meaning of Christmas
is love.

Verse 3:
The true meaning of Christmas
isn't wrapped in a bow.
And it's not what you're given
but what you bestow.

If there's one part of Christmas
that's special to me,
it is found when we love and
we give selflessly...
when we love unselfishly.

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
There is a message
we all believe-
It's always better
to give than receive.
There is a meaning
behind this day
Just let love
lead the way

Ending:
The true meaning of Christmas
isn't under the tree.
It is found when we love
and we give selflessly...
'Cause the true meaning of Christmas
is love
