Some Holiday Cheer

December 23, 2016 § Leave a comment

Even though I wrote my previous post 18 days ago intending to publish it on my birthday, I managed not to post it until today. As a result, I am doubling down on posts today. Consider it my early Christmas gift to you.

Because it is Christmas, I feel I should publish something holiday-related. So I will. Every year, I make a stab at writing a Christmas song because we certainly don’t have enough already. (Well, maybe we do, but why should others have all the fun of adding to the glut.)

This year, I actually wrote two holiday songs, but because moderation is always preached around the holidays, I will only share one of them with you. I’m actually quite proud of this one. I hope you enjoy it and the sentiment it conveys. Merry Christmas to those so inclined. Happy holidays to the rest of you!

Merry Christmas Eve

The presents are wrapped, and the stockings are hung
The kids are asleep, and the carols are sung
We stand ‘neath the mistletoe, just you and me
For a last kiss, this Merry Christmas Eve

The lights on the tree, all shining so bright
Reflecting the promise of a magical night
Watching them glow, it’s not hard to believe
In love and hope this Merry Christmas Eve

There’s a chill in the air and a warmth in our hearts
That comes around this time of year
The joy of the season, the moments we share
When family and friends gather near

(instrumental) – Dream of snow
(instrumental) – Hang Mistletoe
Dress the presents in ribbons and bows
And put them out this Merry Christmas Eve

There’s a chill in the air and a warmth in our hearts
That comes around this time of year
The joy of the season, the moments we share
When family and friends gather near

The hour is late, the lights are turned low
A last cup of cheer, one final Christmas bow
The sleigh has been packed, Santa’s ready to leave
To make his rounds this Merry Christmas Eve

To one and all, a Merry Christmas Eve
