Christmas Riddle, Angel Tree

But this is one where you might think that Muhammad Ali would be remembered.
That is, unless, you know the history behind this day,
Which involves more fortunate individuals giving boxes of gifts away.
What am I?

Don't let the blue color fool you, these days are anything but sad,
Eight days filled with gifts really doesn't sound that bad.
Every one of those nights is filled with love and light,
And my name has many spellings, all of which are considered right.
What am I?


I am a day that circles around two very important men,
One is very jolly, and the other died and came back to life again.
On this holiday you can expect to see some stockings, a tree, and presents galore,
There is even a big fat man who rides in a sleigh that can soar.
What am I?


I help kids whose blessings are slim,
By letting people pull angels from my limbs.
Then, they buy presents that are sure to bring a smile,
I show that the impact of kindness can be felt for a while.
What am I?

An Angel Tree

The ring of a bell is how donations come in,
Triggering people to place cash and coins in a little red bin.

It's a cause that The Salvation Army wants you to remember.
