O Come All Ye Faithful O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant; O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem; Come and behold Him, Born the King of angels; CHORUS: O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord. Sing, chorus of angels, Sing in exultation, Sing all ye citizens of heav’n above: Glory to God, all glory in the highest. Yea Lord, we greet Thee, Born this happy morning; Jesus to Thee be glory giv’n; Word of the Father, Now in flesh appearing

All Through the Night Sleep, the Child and peace attend thee, All through the night. Guardian angels God will send thee, All through the night. Soft the drowsy hours are creeping, Hill and vale in slumber sleeping. God His loving vigil keeping, All through the night. While the moon her watch is keeping, All through the night. While the weary world is sleeping, All throught the night. Through your dreams you’re swiftly stealing, Visions of delight so revealing. Christmas-time is so appealling, All through the night

A Holly Jolly Christmas Have a holly, jolly Christmas, It’s the best time of the year. I don’t know, if there’ll be snow, But have a cup of cheer. Have a holly, jolly Christmas, And when you walk down the street, Say hello, to friends you know, And everyone you meet! Oh, ho, the mistletoe, Hung where you can see. Somebody waits for you, Kiss her once for me. Have a holly, jolly Christmas, And in case you didn’t hear, Oh, by golly, have a holly, jolly Christmas, This year!

Buckeyes This recipe is so good that I double it whenever I make it. Makes an incredible hostess gift for something different. Real buckeyes are nuts that grow on trees and are related to the horse chestnut. Original recipe makes 5 dozen. Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups peanut butter 1 cup butter, softened 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 6 cups confectioners’ sugar 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips

ping) and chill in freezer until firm, about 30 minutes. 3. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth. 4. Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate holding onto the toothpick. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Put back on the cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving. - Submitted by Lyn Hellyar, White Rock BIA

Directions: 1. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, butter, vanilla and confectioners’ sugar. The dough will look dry. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a waxed paperlined cookie sheet. 2. Press a toothpick into the top of each ball (to be used later as the handle for dip-

Away in a Manger Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay Close by me forever and love me, I pray; Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care, And take us to heaven to live with Thee there.

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The Little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head; The stars in the sky looked down where He lay The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes, But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes; I love Thee, Lord Jesus; look down from the sky, And stay by my cradle ‘til morning is nigh.

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear It came upon a midnight clear, That glorious song of old, From angels bending near the earth To touch their harps of gold; “Peace on the earth, goodwill to men From Heaven’s all gracious King,” The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing. Yet with the woes of sin and strife The world has suffered long; Beneath the angel-strain have rolled Two thousand years of wrong; And men, at war with men, hear not The words of peace they bring; O hush the noise ye men of strife, And hear the angels sing.

He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove The glories of His righteousness, And wonders of His love.

Children laughing, people passing, Meeting smile after smile, And on ev’ry street corner you hear; CHORUS Silver Bells, silver bells, It’s Christmas time in the city, Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, Soon it will be Christmas Day.

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! But if you really hold me tight, All the way home I’ll be warm.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, And since we’ve no place to go, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. It doesn’t show signs of stopping, And I brought some corn for popping; The lights are turned way down low, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. When we finally kiss good night, how I’ll hate going out in the storm;

Well, the fire is slowly dying, And, my dear, we’re still good-byeing, But as long as you love me so, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Outside, the snow is falling and friends are calling “Yoo-hoo”; Come on, it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you. Giddy-yap, giddy-yap, giddy-yap, let’s go; Let’s look at the show; We’re riding in a wonderland of snow. Giddy-yap, giddy-yap, giddy-yap, it’s grand, Just holding your hand; We’re gliding along with a song of a wintery fairyland. Our cheeks are nice and rosy, and comfy cozy are we; We’re snuggled up together like two birds of a feather would be.

Let’s take that road before us and sing a chorus or two; Come on, it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen God rest ye merry, gentlemen, Let nothing you dismay, Remember Christ our Saviour Was born on Christmas Day, To save us all from Satan's pow'r When we were gone astray. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.

From God our Heav'nly Father A blessed angel came; And unto certain shepherds Brought tidings of the same: How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by name. O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.

In Bethlehem in Israel, This blessed Babe was born, And laid within a manger. Upon this blessed morn' To which His Mother Mary Did nothing take in scorn, O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.

Now to the Lord sing praises, And you within this place, And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace; This holy tide of Christmas All other doth deface. O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.

These treats must be kept frozen. Courtesy of Dog Utopia Retriever, Retriever pumpkin eater. Festive Pumpkin Dog Treats 2 eggs 1/2 cup canned pumpkin 2 tablespoons dry milk 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

2 1/2 cups brown rice flour (or any flour of your choice) Optional: 1 teaspoon dried parsley  OR 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and/or nutmeg  Preheat oven to 350. In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley (if using, optional). Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine. Roll dough between 1/4 – 1/2” – depending on your dog’s chew preferences, ask first – and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and rerolling scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, lightly pressing down halfway through dough. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog. Courtesy of Dog Utopia

Hark the Herald Angels Sing Hark! The herald angels sing, Glory to the new born King: Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled! Joyful, all ye nations, rise, Join the triumph of the skies; With angelic hosts proclaim, Christ is born in Bethlehem! Hark! the Herald angels sing Glory to the new born King. Christ, by highest heav’n adored; Christ, the everlasting lord; Late in time behold Him come, Offspring of a virgin’s womb, Veiled in flesh the God-head see; Hail th’Incarnate Deity. Pleased as man with man to dwell; Jesus, our Emmanuel!

Hark! the Herald angels sing Glory to the new born King. Hail, the heav’n born Prince of Peace! Hail, the Son of Righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, Ris’n with healing in His wings Mild He lays His glory by. Born that man no more may die Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth. Hark! the Herald angels sing Glory to the new born King.

Classic Christmas Cake • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour • 1 tsp apple pie spice • 1 tsp ground cinnamon • a pinch of salt • 2 2/3 cups golden raisins • 1 1/3 cups raisins • 1 1/3 cups ready-to-eat dried apricots, chopped • 2/3 cup glacé cherries, chopped • 1 cup slivered or chopped almonds • Finely grated zest of 1 unwaxed orange • Finely grated zest of 1 unwaxed lemon • 6 oz. unsalted butter, softened • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar • 4 eggs, beaten • 4 tbsp brandy • 3 tbsp apricot jam • 2 tsp water • 16 oz. ready-made marzipan or almond paste • Confectioner's sugar, for dusting Icing • 3 egg whites • 3 tsp liquid glucose or glycerine • 4 cups confectioner's sugar, sifted • a deep 9-inch round cake pan, greased and lined with a double layer of parchment paper and with a double thickness of parcel paper tied around the outside of the pan Sift the flour, spices and salt into a bowl. Mix the dried fruit, cherries, almonds, and zests in a separate bowl and stir in half the flour. Set aside.

Cream the butter and brown sugar together in a large bowl until pale and creamy, then gradually beat in the eggs. Fold in the remaining flour mixture, then the fruit mixture. Stir in the brandy, mixing well. Spoon the mixture into the prepared cake pan and level the surface. Bake in a preheated oven at 300oF (150oC) for about 2 hours, or until a fine skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then turn onto a wire lack and let cool completely. Wrap the cake tightly in wax paper and foil and store in a cool, dry place for at least a week. To make a glaze, heat the jam in a saucepan, with the water until melted. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1 minute. Strain through a nylon sieve. Place the cake upside-down on a cake board and brush the top and sides with the glaze. Roll out half the marzipan on a surface dusted with confectioner's sugar to fit the top of the cake. Put the marzipan round on top of the cake, then smooth over and neaten the edges. Roll out the remaining marzipan into a long strip to fit the sides of the cake, then roll up, place one end against the side of the cake, and unroll to cover the sides and joins. Leave in a cool, dry place for 1-2 days, to allow the marzipan to dry. To make the icing, lightly whisk the egg whites and liquid glucose in a bowl. Stir in the confectioner's sugar until it forms soft peaks. Spread evenly over the cake. Let dry in a cool place for 24 hours, then decorate as desired.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Let your heart be light. From now on your troubles will be out of sight. Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Make the yuletide gay, From now on your troubles will be miles away... Here we are, as in olden days, Happy golden days, of yore. Faithful friends, who are dear to us, Gather near to us, once more. Through the years, we all will be together, If the fates allow. Hang a shining star upon the highest bough, And have yourself, a merry little Christmas now.

Earrings for the Holiday Season Supplies you will need: • Roundnose pliers • Chain nose pliers • Jewellery cutter - 2 main beads approx. 8mm - this will be the main focus of your design - 2 medium beads approx. 6mm - 6 silver plated or sterling silver 2mm balls - 2 silver plated or sterling bead caps approx 8mm - 2 pairs of earwires - 2 2” headpins Step 1 - Take your 2 inch headpin and add 1 small 2mm silver plated or silver bead Step 2 - Add your main 8mm bead. Make sure you add the 2mm ball before so your main bead does not fall off the head pin. Step 3 - Add your bead cap over your main 8mm bead Step 4 - Add another silver 2mm ball over your bead cap. You want to do this so it breaks the beads up. Step 5 - Now add the 6mm bead then another silver 2mm bead over top. Step 6 - Now repeat the same steps on your second head pin. Step 7 - Now you are ready to close off your earrings.

You will see you have a bit of room left just showing the headpin. You will need to cut this down. You want to have approx. 8-10mm of the headpin left showing from your last small silver bead. - So having no more than 8-10mm of your headpin showing cut the remaining part of the head pin off with your jewellery cutters. - Now take your round nose pliers, holding your earring take your pliers and place the pliers at the end of the headpin. - Holding your earring turn your wrist with the pliers on the headpin down to the floor. - This will allow you to make a circle to close off your earring. - Now it’s time to add your earwires onto the circle you just made. - You will have to use your chain nose pliers to close the circle once you have added your earwires. - You can also use your chain nose pliers to straighten your earrings if they have bent a bit to the side. You now have made a perfect pair of earrings for the holiday season. I hope you had fun. - Courtesy of Johnston & Thrift Barbers

Good King Wenceslas Good King Wenceslas looked out On the Feast of Stephen, When the snow lay round about, Deep and crisp and even; Brightly shone the moon that night, Tho’ the frost was cruel, When a poor man came in sight, Gath’ring winter fuel. “Hither, page and stand by me, If thou know’st it, telling. Yonder peasant, who is he, Where and what his dwelling?” “Sire, he lives a good league hence, Underneath the mountain; Right against the forest fence, By St. Agnes’ fountain.” “Bring me flesh and bring me wine, Bring me pine logs hither; Thou and I will see him dine, When we bear them thither.”

Page and monarch forth they went, Forth they went together. Through the rude wind’s wild lament, And the bitter weather. “Sire, the night is darker now, And the wind blows stronger: Fails my heart, I know not how, I can no longer.” “Mark my footsteps, my good page; Tread thou in them boldly; Thou shalt find the winter’s rage Freeze thy blood less coldly.” In his master’s steps he trod, Where the snow lay dinted; Heat was in the very sod Which the saint had printed. Therefore, Christian men be sure, Wealth or rank possessing, Ye who now will bless the poor Shall yourselves find blessing.

In Excelsis Gloria When Christ was born of Mary free In Bethlehem in that fair city; Angels sung e’er with mirth and glee, In excelsis gloria. Chorus: In excelsis In excelsis In excelsis In excelsis

Chorus: The King is come to save his kind, In the Scriptures as we find; Therefore this song we have in mind: In excelsis gloria. Chorus: Then deal Lord, for Thy great grace, Grant us the bliss to see Thy face, Where we may sing to Thy solace: In excelsis gloria.

Heard the Bells On Christmas Day I heard the bells on Christmas Day Their old familiar carols play And wild and sweet the words repeat, Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head: "There is no peace on earth," I said, "For hate is strong, and mocks the song Of peace on earth, good will to men."

And thought of how the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along th'unbroken song Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: "God is not dead, nor doth he sleep; The wrong shall fail, the right prevail, With peace on earth, good will to men."

'Til, ringing, singing on its way, The world revolved from night to day, A voice, a chime, a chant sublime, Of peace on earth, good will to men!

Here Comes Santa Claus Here comes Santa Claus, Here comes Santa Claus, Right down Santa Claus Lane. Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer, Are pulling on the rein. Bells are ringing, children singing, All is merry and bright. Hang your stockings, And say your prayers, Cause Santa Claus comes tonight. Here comes Santa Claus, Here comes Santa Claus, Right down Santa Claus Lane. He’s got a bag that is filled with toys, For the girls and boys again. Hear those sleigh bells jingle, jangle, What a beautiful sight. Jump in bed, cover up your head, ‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

O Little Town of Bethlehem O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie. Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by: Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting light: The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight. O Holy Child of Bethlehem, Descend to us, we pray; Cast out our sin and enter in; Be born in us today. We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord, Emmanuel.

Gather up dough and divide into 4 balls and roll until about 1 inch by 10 inch . Then wrap in wax paper and freeze about 40 minutes. Line cookie sheets with parchment and preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Remove dough and roll out small balls about 1 inch and place on lined sheets about 1 inch apart. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove and poke an indent or “thumbprint” in middle. The handle of a large wooden spoon works great! Place a 1/2 tsp of red pepper jelly into middle of each cookie so it overflows on the top. Bake for another 10 minutes until tops are lightly browned. Cool completely. Makes about 40 cookies. Store in refrigerator. Courtesy of Wave Dentistry

Merry Christmas


A Dogs Christmas Carol

Wreck the Halls

(sung to the tune of Winter Winderland) Dog tags ring, are you listening’? In the lane, snow is glistenin’. It’s yellow, NOT white I’ve been there tonight, Marking up my winter wonderland.

Wreck the halls with two cats running Fa-la-la-la-la...la-la-la-la Fur goes flying,ornaments get done in Fa-la-la-la-la....la-la-la-la Tumbling swiftly down the stairway Fa-la-la,,la-la-la,la,la,la Woe to those who get in their way Fa,la,la,la,la...la-la-la-la

Smell that tree? That’s my fragrance. It’s a sign for wandering vagrants; Avoid where I pee, it’s MY pro-per-ty! Marked up as my winter wonderland. In the meadow dad will build a snowman, following the classical design. Then I’ll lift my leg and let it go Man, So all the world will know that it’s mine-mine-mine! Straight from me to the fence post, flows my natural incense boast; Stay off my TURF, this small piece of earth, I marked it as my winter wonderland.” - Courtesy Bill Thacker

Merry Christmas from all of us!

Frosty the Snowman Frosty the Snow Man was a jolly, happy soul, With a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal. Frosty the Snow Man is a fairy tale, they say; He was made of snow, but the children know how he came to life one day. There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found, For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around. Oh, Frosty the Snow Man was as alive as he could be. And the children say he would laugh and play just the same as you and me. Frosty the Snow Man knew the sun was hot that day, So he said, “Let’s run and we’ll have some fun now before I melt away.” Down to the village with a broomstick in his hand, Running here and there all around the square, sayin’, “Catch me if you can.”

This Holiday Season let...

Maid Brigade lighten your list! Let Us Do The Cleaning!!!

He led them down the streets of town right to the traffic cop, And he only paused a moment when he heard him holler “Stop!” For Frosty the Snow Man had to hurry on his way, But he waved good-bye, sayin’, Don’t you cry; I’ll be back again someday.” Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Look at Frosty go; Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, Over the hills of snow.

The Night Before Christmas Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. All the stockings were hung by the chimney with care In the hope that Saint Nicholas soon would be there. Then, what to my wondering eyes should appear, A miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer, A little old driver so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick. And more rapid than eagles his reindeer all came, As he shouted, “On, Dasher” and each reindeer’s name. And so up to the housetop the reindeer soon flew

With the sleigh full of toys and Saint Nicholas, too. Down the chimney he came with a leap and a bound; He was dressed all in fur, and his belly was round. He spoke not a word but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk. And laying his finger aside of his nose, Then giving a nod up the chimney he rose. But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight. “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!”

A Beautiful Season Here's hoping it's a beautiful season for you and your family this holiday. We feel privileged to have your support and honored by your friendship. Merry Christmas! Dr. William Liang www.implant.ca

Up on the Housetop Up on the housetop reindeer pause; Out jumps good old Santa Claus, Down through the chimney with lots of toys, All for the little ones’ Christmas joys. CHORUS Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go? Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go Up on the housetop, click, click, click, Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick.

Look in the stocking of little Bill; Oh, just see that glorious fill, Here is a hammer and lots of tacks, Whistles and ball and a set of jacks. CHORUS

First comes the stocking of little Nell; Oh, dear Santa, fill it well; Give her a dolly that laughs and cries, One that can open and shut its eyes. CHORUS

We Three Kings We three kings of Orient are, Bearing gifts, we traverse afar, Field and fountain, moor and mountain, Following yonder star. Refrain: O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light. Solo (Melchoir) Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain, Gold I bring to crown Him again, King forever, ceasing never, Over us all to reign.

Solo (Casper) Frankincense to offer have I, Incense owns a Deity nigh; Prayer and praising, all men raising, Worship him God most high. Solo (Balthazar) Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume, Breathes a life of gathering gloom; Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in the stone-cold tomb. Glorious now behold Him arise, King and God Sacrifice; Heavens sing Alleluia Alleluia the earth replies.

We wish you a very special Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with Health and Happiness!

We Need a Little Christmas Haul out the holly; Put up the tree before my spirit falls again Fill up the stocking I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again right now For we need a little Christmas Right this very minute Candles in the window, Carols at the spinet, Yes, we need a little Christmas Right this very minute It hasn’t snowed a single flurry But Santa dear, we’re in a hurry; So climb down the chimney; Turn on the brightest string of light I’ve ever seen. Slice up the fruitcake; It’s time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bow.

For I’ve grown a little leaner; Grown a little colder, Grown a little sadder, Grown a little older, And I need a little angel, Sitting on my shoulder, Need a little Christmas now, For we need a little music, Need a little laughter, Need a little singing, Ringing through the rafter, And we need a little snappy, “Happy ever after,” Need a little Christmas now.

What Child is This What child is this, who laid to rest On Mary’s lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, While shepherds watch are keeping. This, this is Christ the King Whom shepherds guard and angels sing; Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son of Mary. Why lies He in such mean estate, where ox and ass are feeding, Good Christian fear, for sinners here the silent word is pleading. Nails, spears shall pierce Him through, the cross be borne for me, for you, Hail, hail the Word made flesh, the Babe, the Son of Mary. So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh, come, peasant, king to own Him,

The King of kings salvation brings, let loving hearts enthrone Him. Raise, raise the song on high, the Virgin sings her lullaby; Joy, joy for Christ is born, the Babe, the Son of Mary.

Goat Cheese Appetizers Have goat cheese on hand for the holidays and you can put together a delicious appetizer in no time that’s sure to impress! Option #1 goat cheese (oven toasted or room temp, your preference) Drizzle warm honey over the goat cheese In a pan, reduce about 1/2c of balsamic vinegar to half, or until it sticks to the back of your spoon Take a package of dried figs (fresh don’t work very well) and slice them in half lengthwise. Lightly sauté figs with about 1 tbsp. of the balsamic reduction. Place figs on top of goat cheese and honey. Drizzle some of the remaining balsamic reduction on a plate for a pleasing presentation If you can’t find figs or you don’t like them, use blueberries.   Serve with your favorite cracker (rosemary crackers add a really nice herbal touch).   Option #2: goat cheese (oven toasted or room temp, your preference) Take two heads of garlic and slice off the top. Place in muffin tin drizzled in olive oil.

Cover in tin foil and bake in oven at 400 until golden and soft Plate warmed goat cheese with roasted garlic cloves and serve with an onion jam (make your own or purchase ) or a chutney( a fig and ginger chutney is lovely or a cranberry chutney is festive). You can purchase some very good chutneys at your local grocery store in the Deli or Specialty foods section)   Serve with toasted (garlic) naan bread or crackers. Don’t forget the rice crackers for your gluten free visitors!

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus, Underneath the mistletoe last night. She didn’t see me creep, Down the stairs to have a peep; She thought that I was tucked up in my bedroom fast asleep. Then I, saw mommy tickle Santa Claus Underneath his beard so snowy white; Oh what a laugh it would have been, If daddy had only seen, Mommy kissing Santa Claus, last night.

O Holy Night O holy night! The stars are brightly shining It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth; Long lay the world, in sin and error pining. ‘Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn; Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices! O night divine, O night when Christ was born! O night divine, O night divine, O night divine! Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand. So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming, Here came the wise men from Orient land. The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger, In all our trials born to be our Friend! He knows our need–to our weakness is no stranger. Behold your King; before Him lowly bend! Behold your King; before Him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another; His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother And in His Name all oppression shall cease. Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, Let all within us praise His holy Name! Christ is the Lord! O praise His name forever! His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim! His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!

Rocking Around the Christmas Tree Rocking around, the Christmas tree, At the Christmas party hop. Mistletoe hung where you can see Ev’ry couple tries to stop, Rockin’ around the Christmas tree, Let the Christmas spirit ring. Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie, And we’ll do some caroling. You will get a sentimental feeling, When you hear, Voices singing “Let’s be jolly, Deck the halls with boughs of holly.” Rocking around the Christmas tree, Have a happy holiday, Ev’ryone dancing merrily, In the new old fashioned way.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Ev’rywhere you go; Take a look in the five-and-ten, glistening once again, With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Ev’rywhere you go; There’s a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well, The sturdy kind that doesn’t mind the snow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Toys in ev’ry store, But the prettiest sight to see, is the holly that will be, On your own front door.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas; Soon the bells will start, And the thing that will make them ring, Is the carol that you sing. Right within your heart.

A pair of hop along boots and a pistol that shoots, Is the wish of Barney and Ben; Dolls that will talk, and go for a walk, Is the hope of Janice and Jen; And mom and dad can hardly wait, for school to start again.

Winter Wonderland Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane, snow is glistening. A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight, Walking in a Winter Wonderland. Gone away is the bluebird. Here to stay is a new bird. He sings a love song, as we go along, Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

Gift tes fica Certi ilable ava

In a meadow we can build a snowman, Then pretend that he is Parson Brown. He’ll say “Are you married?” We’ll say “No man!” But you can do the job when you’re in town. Later on, we’ll conspire, As we dream by the fire. To face unafraid, the plans that we made, Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

The First Noel The first Noel, the angel did say, Was to certain poor shepherds in fields where they lay. In fields where they, lay keeping their sheep, On a cold winter’s night, that was so deep.

And by the light of that same star, Three wise men came from countries afar. To seek for a-King, was their intent, And to follow the star, where ever it went. Refrain

Refrain: Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel.

This star drew nigh, to the northwest, O’er Bethlehem it took its rest. And there it did, both pause and stay, Right over the place, where Jesus lay. Refrain Then entered in those, wise men three, Full reverently, upon their knee. And offered there, in His presence, Their gold and myrrh, and frankincense. Refrain

They looked up and saw a star, Shining in the east beyond them so far. And to the earth, it gave great light, And so it continued both day and night Refrain

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer Had a very shiny nose And if you ever saw it, You would even say it glows. All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names They never let poor Rudolph Join in any reindeer games. Then one foggy Christmas eve, Santa came to say: “Rudolph, with your nose so bright Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?” Then how the reindeer loved him As they shouted out with glee: “Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer, You’ll go down in history.”

The Christmas Song Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose; Yuletide carols being sung by a choir And folks dressed up like Eskimos. Everybody knows that turkey and some mistletoe Help to make the season bright; Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow Will find it hard to sleep tonight. They know that Santa’s on his way; He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh And every mother’s child is gonna spy To see if reindeer really know how to fly. And so I’m offering this simple phrase, To kids from one to ninety-two; Although it’s been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas to you.

White Christmas I’m dreaming of a white Christmas Just like the ones I used to know, Where the treetops glisten, and children listen To hear sleighbells in the snow. I’m dreaming of a white Christmas With every Christmas card I write May your days be merry and bright, And may all your Christmases be white.

SALI’s Farm is a safe haven for at-risk children and rescued animals to bond, learn and heal with one another.

“Christmas, my child, is love in action, every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas” - Dale Evan Rogers

In 2012, Badger became our first rescue animal at SALI’s farm. Badger had a tough life as a baby horse and is now lame in both front feet with severe navicular. SALI’s Farm has helped Badger heal from his abuse and he now works with at-risk children to show them they too have hope to heal from their abuse.

Badger, the rescue horse, wishes you a very merry Christmas!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town You better watch out; you better not cry; Better not pout; I’m telling you why: Santa Claus is comin’ to town. He’s making a list and checking it twice; Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice; Santa Claus is comin’ to town. He sees you when you’re sleepin’; He knows when you’re awake; He knows if you’ve been bad or good; So be good for goodness sake. Oh! you better watch out; you better not cry; Better not pout; I’m telling you why; Santa Claus is comin’ to town.
