Of course, as the song goes .”..And A Happy New Year.” We hope Santa fills your stocking that you hung with care, with what was on your list.
Deck The Halls
You spent some time and built a Frosty The Snowman on the lawn, except for those of us in the Sun Belt where we put up a Santa on the roof, maybe wearing shorts and sunglasses because A White Christmas for us is just a dream.
Somewhere you can hear Silver Bells and Jingle Bells seem to be everywhere you go, especially where you see Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire.
As you travel about doing the last minute shopping, you speed dial on the cell phone to call Mom to tell her I’ll Be Home For Christmas.
Go ahead and Let It Snow because that makes the landscape look like A Winter Wonderland.
Christmas Eve means Santa Claus Is Coming To Town with Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer guiding his sleigh.
Don’t forget you can track Santa as he makes his rounds at NORAD. You can use this link to follow his progress.
O Holy Night
Christmas is a holiday celebrated worldwide with deep religious significance for many as the celebration of the birth of Christ in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago. While the secular aspects of the season have become very pronounced and blended with the original religious celebration, this event is the very reason we have a Christmas holiday.
So besides enjoying the excitement with our families around the tree on Christmas morning, many of us will look upon the day as a hope for Joy To The World and listen as The Angels Sing.
While the song may say Silent Night, we can hear The Little Drummer Boy and listen and exclaim Hark! The Herald Angels Sing as they remind us O Come, All Yee Faithful as we gather in our churches to celebrate The First Noel.
A Merry Little Christmas
No matter how you and your family celebrate we hope the season allows you to Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.
Our Christmas wish to all, and especially for our men and women in uniform serving so gallantly around the world, is for Peace On Earth.
