I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. ~Charles Dickens

I’ll Be Home For Christmas

I’ll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents ‘neath the tree

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
If only in my dreams

 

 

Christmas Past

Each Christmas I remember
The ones of long ago;
I see our mantelpiece adorned
With stockings in a row.

Each Christmas finds me dreaming
Of days that used to be,
When Christmas mantelwe hid presents here and there,
For all the family.

Each Christmas I remember
The fragrance in the air,

Of roasting turkey and mince pies
And cookies everywhere.

 

Each Christmas finds me longing
For Christmases now past,
And I am back in childhood
As long as memories last.

(Written by Carice Williams)

 

Grinch“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

 

And so, as Tiny Tim said, “A Merry Christmas to us all; God bless us, every one!”
