All around the world, bells will ring on December 25th. From the pubs in London to the cathedrals in Rome to the shores of Gwynn's Island in Virginia, where today's poet calls home, there will be people celebrating the birth of a baby born over two thousand years ago.
On our eighth day of poetry, Poets Who Blog is honored to be able to share with you Scott Clawson’s poem The Reason for the Season. In the last line of this poem lays the true meaning of this holiday season for many people. We celebrate because we are saved from our sins and ourselves.
May this holiday be a blessed one for all of you.
