These crispy confections are brimming with kid appeal. • 2 egg whites, at room temperature • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract • 1/2 cup sugar • red coloured sugar Heat oven to 200F. With an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks start to form. Beating all the while, add the cream of tartar and vanilla extract, then slowly add the 1/2 cup of sugar. Continue to beat until the peaks stiffen. Spoon the meringue into a quart-size plastic bag. Snip off a corner and pipe 2 dozen 1 1/2 inch-tall Santa hat triangles onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. You should have about 1/4 of the meringue left. Sprinkle the triangles with the red sugar, then use the remaining meringue to give each one a pompom and trim. Bake the hats until they’re hard but not browned, about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the hats in it for an hour to crisp before removing.

In a food processor knead self raising flour, diced butter, soft sugar, spices, lemon peel and salt to taste into a soft dough. Knead shortly with a cool hand. Wrap dough in cling wrap and let rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Mix almond paste, egg yolks and lemon peel with a fork. Beat egg white lightly.

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 the new bird

He sings a love song, as we go along Walking in a winter wonderland In the meadow we can build a snowman And pretend that he is Parson Brown He’ll say, “Are you married?”

We’ll say, “No, man. But you can do the job while 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

Silver Bells Chorus Silver bells, silver bells It’s Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them ring Soon it will be Christmas day Strings of street lights, even stop lights Blink a bright red and green As the shoppers rush home with

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks Dressed in holiday style In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas Children laughing, people passing Meeting smile after smile And on every street corner you hear

their treasures Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch This is Santa’s big scene And above all this bustle you hear Repeat Chorus

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 (like a light bulb) All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names (like Pinocchio) They never let poor Rudolph Join in any reindeer games (like monopoly) Then one foggy Christmas Eve

Santa came to say “Rudolph with your nose so bright, Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?” Then all the reindeer loved him (loved him) And they shouted out with glee (Yippee!) Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer You’ll go down in history! (Like Columbus)

Holly Jolly Christmas

Jingle Bells

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

Dashing through the snow In a one-horse open sleigh O’er the fields we go Laughing all the way, ha-ha-ha Bells on bob-tail ring Making spirits bright What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight Chorus

A day or two ago I thought I’d take a ride And soon Miss Fanny Bride Was seated by my side The horse was lean and gay Misfortune was our lot We got into a quick snow drift And away went at a trot Repeat Chorus

Oh - Jingle bells! Jingle Bells! Jingle all the way! Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh (Repeat)

Let it Snow 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

When we finally say goodnight How I’ll hate going out in the storm But if you really hold me tight All the way home I’ll be warm

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

The fire is slowly dying And my dear, we’re still goodbye-ing But as long as you love me so Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Frosty the Snowman Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul With a corncob pipe and a button nose And two eyes made out of coal Frosty the snowman 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!

He led them down the streets of town Right to a traffic cop And he only paused a moment when He heard him holler “Stop!”

Frosty the snowman was alive as he could be And the children say he could laugh and play Just the same as you and me

For Frosty the snowman Had to hurry on his way But he waved goodbye Saying don’t you cry I’ll be back again some day

Frosty the snowman, knew the sun was hot that day So he said let’s run and we’ll have some fun Now before I melt away

Thumpety thump thump Thumpety thump thump Look at Frosty go Thumpety thump thump Thumpety thump thump Over the hills of snow

Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand Running here and there all around the square Saying catch me if you can

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.

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.
