Away in a Manger Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head. The stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. The cattle are lowing, the poor 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 till 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.

Carol of the Bells Hark how the bells, sweet silver bells, all seem to say, throw cares away Christmas is here, bringing good cheer, to young and old, meek and the bold, Ding dong ding that is their song with joyful ring all caroling One seems to hear words of good cheer from everywhere filling the air Oh how they pound, raising the sound, o'er hill and dale, telling their tale, Gaily they ring while people sing songs of good cheer, Christmas is here, Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas, Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas, On on they send , on without end, their joyful tone to every home Dong Ding dong ding, dong Bong.

Italian Herbed Bread

Blue Christmas I’ll have a blue Christmas without you; I’ll be so blue thinking about you. Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree Won’t mean a thing if you’re not here with me. I’ll have a blue Christmas, that’s certain; And when that blue heartache starts hurtin’; You’ll be do'in’ all right with your Christmas of white, But I’ll have a blue, blue Christmas.

Christmas Song 21/2cups bread flour 1 cup hot tap water 3 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 teaspoon white sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 package fast-acting dry yeast* (see note below about yeast) Dried Italian seasonings, to taste Dried rosemary, to taste 1 teaspoon olive oil reserved for after baking Sprinkle of Kosher salt reserved for after baking In a mixing bowl, combine fast-acting yeast and hot water. Let yeast and water sit for 5 minutes.Add sugar, salt, olive oil, herbs and flour. Mix until ingredients are well incorporated. (For those with bread machines, follow the directions for the machine for mixing the dough).Then turn out onto a floured board.With hands dusted in flour, knead bread for 5 minutes until dough is soft and no longer very tacky. *If using fastacting yeast, follow the instructions for rising. Many brands require the dough to simply sit aside for 10 minutes, which will replace the first rise with traditional yeast recipes. If using traditional yeast, follow the instructions on the packet for rising and punching down dough. When dough has sat or undergone the first rise, transfer it to a loaf pan that has been lightly oiled. Set the pan in a warm spot of the home. Let the dough rise in the loaf pan until doubled in size, roughly 2 to 3 hours. Bake risen dough in an oven preheated to 400 F for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove bread and use a pastry brush to brush olive oil on top and then sprinkle with Kosher salt. Serve warm. (Serves 6 to 8)

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 a 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 ev'ry 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 Altho' it's been said many times Many ways; "Merry Christmas to you".

Deck the Halls Deck the halls with with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la la. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la la. Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la la la la la. Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la la la la la. See the blazing Yule before us, Fa la la la la la la la la. Strike the harp and join the chorus, Fa la la la la la la la la. Follow me in merry measure, Fa la la la la la la. While I tell of Yuletide treasure, Fa la la la la la la la la.

Turkey leftovers the family will want to eat It's easy to have leftover turkey once the Christmas holiday has passed. Many people miscalculate the number of pounds of turkey they need to feed the family, or an excess of side dishes makes Tom Turkey less of the culinary centerpiece he should be. Don't worry if you're one of the people left with an abundance of turkey.There are plenty of ways to turn it into delicious meals to be enjoyed for several days after the holiday. To enjoy turkey leftovers, first the remaining turkey should be prepared and stored so it can be safely eaten later on.This means that turkey should be deboned and packed up for storage no later than two hours after the bird has been served, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service. Generally, leftover turkey can be enjoyed 3 to 4 days after Christmas if it is refrigerated. If the meat is frozen, it can last much longer. Now comes the time to whip up delicious recipes from that remaining turkey. Here are some ideas to whet the appetite. • Turkey chili: Combine the meat with kidney beans, red and green peppers, onions, pureed tomato and

a package of chili seasonings from the supermarket. Let simmer and serve with corn bread or over rice. • Turkey kabobs:Thread turkey on skewers with apples, pears or pineapples. Bake until meat is reheated and fruit is soft. • Turkey gyro:Top pitas with turkey meat, lettuce, onion, and fresh tzatziki sauce.Tzatziki is made by mixing chopped cucumber, garlic and lemon juice with a thick Greek yogurt. • Turkey omelets: Chop up turkey and add it to the egg mixture when making omelets. Serve with toast spread with cranberry sauce. • Turkey pot pie: Line a pie tin with homemade or store-bought pie crust.Add the turkey, half a can of cream of chicken soup, a package of thawed mixed vegetables, and the remaining pie crust. Bake until the pot pie is bubbly and hot. • Turkey Mexican-style: Replace the meat in tacos, fajitas or enchiladas with leftover turkey. • Buffalo turkey pizza:Toss leftover turkey with melted butter and hot sauce. Use the seasoned meat on top of a homemade or pre-made pizza. Bake and enjoy. • Turkey-tossed pasta:Add strips of turkey to a dish of pasta, topped with

a favorite sauce. • Turkey panini: Slice a thick, crusty bread and spread the outsides with butter.Add layers of turkey, cheese and cooked bacon. Cook on a griddle, using a heavy pan to hold the panini flat while cooking. Flip over and continue to cook until panini is golden brown and cheese is melted. • Pulled pork-style turkey: Chop up or pull apart leftover turkey meat. Toss with your favorite barbecue sauce. Serve on soft sandwich buns with a side of cole slaw. • Turkey salad sandwich: Mix chopped turkey with mayonnaise or salad dressing, diced celery, onions, and shredded carrots for a refreshing cold sandwich filling. • Turkey and vegetable stir-fry: Heat a wok or skillet with a little oil and saute onions, garlic and favorite stir-fry vegetables.Add the turkey to heat and season with soy sauce or teriyaki. Serve over steamed rice.

Do you hear what I hear? Said the night wind to the little lamb, "Do you see what I see? Way up in the sky, little lamb, Do you see what I see? A star, a star, dancing in the night With a tail as big as a kite, With a tail as big as a kite." Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy, "Do you hear what I hear? Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy, Do you hear what I hear? A song, a song high above the trees With a voice as big as the the sea, With a voice as big as the the sea." Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king, "Do you know what I know? In your palace warm, mighty king, Do you know what I know? A Child, a Child shivers in the cold-Let us bring him silver and gold, Let us bring him silver and gold." Said the king to the people everywhere, "Listen to what I say! Pray for peace, people, everywhere, Listen to what I say! The Child, the Child sleeping in the night He will bring us goodness and light, He will bring us goodness and light."

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.

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.”

For Frosty the Snowman had to hurry on his way, But he waved good-bye, sayin’, “Don’t you cry; I’ll be back again some-

God rest you merry gentlemen The Son of God by name

Unto the Lord did pray

"Fear not then," said the Angel "Let nothing you affright This day is born a Saviour Of a pure Virgin bright To free all those who trust in him From Satan's power and might"

Now to the Lord sing praises All you within this place And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace This holy tide of Christmas All other doth deface

In Bethlehem, in Jewry The blessed babe was born And laid within a manger Upon this blessed morn The which His Mother Mary Did nothing take in scorn

The shepherds at those tidings Rejoiced much in mind And left their flocks a-feeding In tempest, storm and wind And went to Bethlehem straightway The Son of God to find

From God our Heavenly Father A blessed Angel came And unto certain shepherds Brought tidings of the same How that in Bethlehem was born

And when they came to Bethlehem Where our dear Saviour lay They found Him in a manger Where oxen feed on hay His Mother Mary kneeling down

God bless the ruler of this house And send him long to reign And many a merry Christmas May he live to see again Among his friends and kindred That live both far and near And God send you a Happy New Year Happy New Year And God send you a Happy New Year

God rest you merry gentlemen Let nothing you dismay Remember Christ our saviour Was born on Christmas Day To save us all from Satan's power When we were gone astray O tidings of comfort and joy comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

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 Though the frost was cruel When a poor man came in sight Gathering winter fuel

"Bring me flesh and bring me wine Bring me pine logs hither Thou and I shall see him dine When we bear them thither" Page and monarch on they went On they went together Through the rude wind's wild lament Through the bitter weather

"Hither page and stand by me If thou know'st it telling Yonder peasant, who is he? Where and whats his dwelling?" "Sire, he lives a good league hence Underneath the mountain Close against the forest fence By Saint Agnes fountain"

"Sire the night is darker now And the storm grows stronger Fails my heart, I know not how I can go no longer" "Mark my steps, be brave my page Tread thou in them boldly Then thou'll find the winter's rage Freeze thy blood less coldly"

Hark! T he Herald Angels Sing

In his master's steps he trod Where the snow lay dinted Heat was in the very sod Which his foot had printed Therefore Christian men be sure Wealth or rank possessing Ye who now do bless the poor Shall yourselves find blessing

Christ, by highest heaven adored Christ, the everlasting Lord. Long desired behold Him come, Finding here His humble home. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail the incarnate Deity! Pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus our Emmanuel. Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King.” Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace! Hail the Son of righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, Risen 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 newborn King.”


Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn 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 newborn King.”

Have yourself a merry Here comes Santa Claus little Christmas Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Let your heart be light From now on, our troubles will be out of sight. Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Make the Yule-tide gay, From now on, our 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.


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 pray’rs, ‘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 boys and girls again. Hear those sleighbells jingle jangle, oh what a beautiful sight. Jump in bed, cover up your head, ‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

Here Comes Santa Claus! Here Comes Santa Claus! Right down Santa Claus Lane! He doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor for he loves you just the same. Santa knows that we’re God’s children, that makes ev’rything right. Fill your hearts with a Christmas cheer, ‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight. Here Comes Santa Claus! Here Comes Santa Claus! Right down Santa Claus Lane! He’ll come around when the chimes ring out, then it’s Christmas morn again. Peace on earth will come to all if we just follow the light. Let’s give thanks to the Lord above,‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

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 kissing 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.

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, good will to men, From heaven's all-gracious

King." The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing. Still through the cloven skies they come With peaceful wings unfurled,

Holiday Ham with Maple Syrup-Clove-Marmalade Glaze Courtesy “Stonewall Kitchen Winter Celebrations” (Chronicle Books, 2009) by Jonathan King, Jim Stott and Kathy Gunst ingredients 1 8- to 10-pound bone-in smoked ham (sliced or unsliced) 2 tablespoons whole cloves 2 large oranges 1/2 cup maple syrup 1/2 cup marmalade Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Trim the ham of any excess fat and place it flat side down on a rack in a large roasting pan. Using a small, sharp knife, score the ham by making a grid pattern (1/4-inch deep) across the ham at 3/4-inch intervals. (If you’re using a sliced ham, you’ll only need to make one set of cuts, perpendicular to the slices that are already there.) Poke the pointy ends of the cloves into the ham where the lines intersect, scattering any remaining cloves on the bottom of the pan. Zest the oranges, and set the zest aside in a small saucepan for the glaze. Juice the oranges directly over the ham, straining the seeds, then cover the ham with foil and bake for 2 hours, turning the pan and basting with the pan juices once or twice during cooking. Meanwhile, add the syrup and marmalade to the pan with the zest and bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring.When the marmalade has melted, remove from the heat and set aside. After 2 hours, increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F. Remove the foil, pour the glaze evenly over the ham and bake another 30 minutes uncovered, or until nicely browned.Transfer the ham to a serving platter and let it sit 15 minutes before slicing. Serve warm, drizzled with pan juices. Note: Look for smoked hams at specialty food shops and most good butchers, or in most supermarkets.You can also use a honey-cured ham, sliced or unsliced. Serves 8 to 10, with leftovers

And still their heavenly music floats O'er all the weary world; Above its sad and lowly plains They bend on hovering wing, And ever o'er its Babelsounds The blessed angels sing. Yet with the woes of sin and strife The world has suffered long; Beneath the heavenly strain have rolled Two thousand years of wrong; And man, at war with man, hears not The tidings which they bring; O hush the noise, ye men of strife, And hear the angels sing!

O ye, beneath life's crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, Who toil along the climbing way With painful steps and slow, Look now! for glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing; O rest beside the weary road And hear the angels sing! For lo! the days are hastening on, By prophets seen of old, When with the ever-circling years Shall come the time foretold, When peace shall over all the earth Its ancient splendors fling, And the whole world give back the song Which now the angels sing.

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, Toys in ev'ry store, But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be On your own front door. A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots Is the wish of Barney and Ben; Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk Is the hope of Janice and Jen; And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again. 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; Soon the bells will start, And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing Right within your heart.

Jingle Bells Dashing thru’ the snow, In a one-horse open sleigh O’er the fields we go, Laughing all the way, Bells on bobtails ring, Making spirits bright, What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight! CHORUS Oh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! Oh! What fun it is to ride, In a one-horse open sleigh! A day or two ago, I thought I’d take a ride, And soon Miss Fannie Bright was seated by my side. The horse was lean and lank,

Misfortune seem’d his lot, He got into a drifted bank And then we got upsot! CHORUS Now the ground is white, Go it while you’re young, Take the girls tonight, And sing this sleighing song. Just get a bobtail nag, Two-forty for his speed, Then hitch him to an open sleigh and Crack! You’ll take the lead. CHORUS Oh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! Oh! What fun it is to ride, In a one-horse open sleigh!

Nougat Candy (Turrón) with Almonds & Cashews From “Dulce: Desserts in the Latin-American Tradition” (Rizzoli, 2010) ingredients 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 cup honey 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise, seeds scraped out and reserved (or 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract) 1 egg white 1 pinch cream of tartar 1 cup toasted and coarsely chopped almonds 1 cup toasted and coarsely chopped cashews About 2 cups confectioners’ sugar method In a small saucepan over medium heat bring the granulated sugar, honey and vanilla bean and seeds (or extract) to a boil. Continue cooking, without stirring, until the temperature on a candy thermometer reaches 248 degrees F (the “soft ball” stage). If you don’t have a candy thermometer, scoop a bit of the sugar mixture onto a spoon and submerge it in a bowl of ice water for a few seconds. Grab the sugar with your fingertips.You should be able to form it into a small, soft ball. Remove the vanilla bean.

While the syrup is cooking, soak the bowl and the whisk attachment of an electric mixer in warm water and dry thoroughly.This will ensure that the egg whites gain enough volume during beating. Put the egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl and beat until soft peaks form.Turn the mixer to high speed and slowly and carefully add the hot syrup to the egg white mixture. Continue beating at high speed until the meringue becomes nice and fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the bowl no longer feels hot to the touch. Fold in the nuts. Dust a work surface generously with confectioners sugar. Pour the warm nougat on top and cover it with more confectioners sugar. Knead it until it is fully coated with the sugar and no longer sticking to the surface of your hands, about 1 minute. Form the nougat into a large rectangle and, using a rolling pin dusted with more sugar, flatten it to 1/2-inch thick.

Joy to the World

Jingle Bell Rock Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun Now the jingle hop has begun.

Joy to the world, the Lord is come Let earth receive her King Let every heart prepare Him room And heaven and nature sing And heaven and nature sing And heaven, and heave and nature sing

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square In the frosty air.

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns Let men their songs employ While fields and floods Rocks, hills and plains Repeat the sounding joy Repeat the sounding joy Repeat, repeat the sounding joy No more let sins and sorrows grow Nor thorns infest the ground He comes to make His blessing flow Far as the curse is found Far as the curse is found Far as, far as the curse is found

What a bright time, it's the right time To rock the night away Jingle bell time is a swell time To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet Jingle around the clock Mix and a-mingle in the jingling beat That's the jingle bell, That's the jingle bell, That's the jingle bell rock.

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

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!

1255 4th Avenue — Prince George, BC



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 goodnight, How I’ll hate going out in the storm! But if you’ll really hold me tight, All the way home I’ll be warm. The fire is slowly dying, And my dear, we’re still goodbyeing. But as long as you love me so, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How faithful are thy branches! O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How faithful are thy branches! Green not alone in Summer time, But in the Winter’s frost and Rime; O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, How faithful are thy branches! This not alone in Summer’s sheen, Its boughs are broad, its leaves are green; It blooms for us when wild winds blow And earth is white with feath’ry snow; A voice tells all its boughs among Of shepherd’s watch and angel’s song; Of holy Babe in manger low The story of long ago.

O Little Town of Bethlehem O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie, Above the deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by; Yet in Thy dark street shineth The everlasting light. The hopes and fears of all the years, Are met in thee tonight. For Christ is born of Mary, And gathered all above, While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wond’ring love. O morning stars, together Proclaim the holy birth, And praises sing to God the King, And peace to men on earth. How silently, how silently, The wond’rous gift is given; So God imparts to human hearts The blessing of His heaven. No ear may hear His coming, But in this world of sin, Where meek souls will receive Him still The dear Christ enters in.

Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer Rudolf, the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose. And if you ever saw him, you would even say it glows. All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names. They never let poor Rudolf play in any reindeer games. Then one foggy Christmas eve Santa came to say: "Rudolf with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight?" Then all the reindeer loved him as they shouted out with glee: "Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer, you'll go down in history!"

Season’s Greetings Happy Holidays from all of us at

Interior Offroad Still can’t decide... then consider a gift certificate (any value)


O holy Child of Bethlehem, Descend to us, we pray, Cast out our sins, 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.

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 coming to town He's making a list, And checking it twice; Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice. Santa Claus is coming to town He sees you when you're sleeping He knows when you're awake He knows if you've been bad or good So be good for goodness sake!

Silver Bells Silver bells, silver bells It's Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them sing Soon it will be Christmas day 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 ev'ry street corner you'll hear 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 their treasures Hear the snow crunch See the kids bunch This is Santa's big scene And above all this bustle You'll hear Silver bells, silver bells It's Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them sing Soon it will be Christmas day

O! You better watch out! You better not cry. Better not pout, I'm telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to town. Santa Claus is coming to town.

Happy Holidays

THE ALL-NEW 2011 JETTA FROM ONLY $15,875* When we set about completely redesigning the 2011 Jetta, we paid special attention to every detail, especially the price. The All-New Jetta is our most affordable Jetta ever, but that doesn’t mean we’ve cut corners – quite the opposite, actually. Class-leading cargo space†, class-leading rear passenger space†, and bold new German styling mean that, when it comes to delivering bang for buck, we’ve decided that the bigger the bang, the better.

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 sleigh bells 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 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

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. In the 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've made, Walking in a winter wonderland. In the meadow we can build a snowman, And pretend that he's a circus clown We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman, Until the other kids knock him down. When it snows, ain't it thrilling, Though your nose gets a chilling We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way, Walking in a winter wonderland.
