CHRISTMAS IS OVER … NEW YEAR NEARBY

A timeless classic.

Another favorite of mine.

It was written so long ago, yet the lyrics apply today as much as they did then.

If only ….

Happy Xmas … War is Over!

Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” is a Christmas song with lyrics by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, released in 1971 as a single by John & Yoko/Plastic Ono Band with the Harlem Community Choir.

The lyrics are set to the traditional English ballad “Skewball”.

It was the seventh single release by Lennon outside of his work with the Beatles. The song reached number 4 in the UK, where its release was delayed until November 1972, and has periodically reemerged on the UK Singles Chart, most notably after Lennon’s death in 1980, at which point it peaked at number 2.

Also a protest song against the Vietnam War, “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” has since become a Christmas standard, frequently covered by other artists, appearing on compilation albums of seasonal music, and named in polls as a holiday favorite.

Partial Lyrics 

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
Yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear ….

CHRISTMAS CARD

‘Twas the day known as Christmas, and all over Twitter …

… this holiday card had us chuckle and titter.

Advisors and cronies, when Trump wasn’t near …
… all quietly wondered why his wife wasn’t here.

While intern who made this on a mac down the hall …
… was fired because he left Trump’s hand too small.

But honestly folks, and I’m sorry it’s rude …
…  if your stocking got coal, blame your vote for this dude.’

CHRISTMAS DAY

I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day.

We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year.

As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year.

And thus I drift along into the holidays – let them overtake me unexpectedly – waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself:

“Why, this is Christmas Day!”

CHRISTMAS EVE

The meaning of Christmas … the Night before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads …

“That’s Christmas To Me”

The fireplace is burning bright, shining all on me
I see the presents underneath the good old Christmas tree
And I wait all night ’til Santa comes to wake me from my dreams
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I see the children play outside, like angels in the snow
While mom and daddy share a kiss under the mistletoe
And we’ll cherish all these simple things wherever we may be
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I’ve got this Christmas song in my heart
I’ve got the candles glowing in the dark
I’m hanging all the stockings by the Christmas tree
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I listen for the thud of reindeer walking on the roof
As I fall asleep to lullabies, the morning’s coming soon
The only gift I’ll ever need is the joy of family
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I’ve got this Christmas song in my heart (song in my heart)
I’ve got the candles glowing in the dark
I’m hanging all the stockings by the Christmas tree
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

Ooooohhhhoooohhooohhh
Ooooohhhhoooohhooohhh

Oh, the joy that fills our hearts and makes us see
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I’ve got this Christmas song in my heart
I’ve got the candles glowing in the dark
And then for years to come we’ll always know one thing
That’s the love that Christmas can bring
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

All I want for Christmas is You

All I Want for Christmas Is You” is a song performed by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey.

She wrote and produced the song with Walter Afanasieff. Columbia Records released it on November 1, 1994, as the lead single from her first holiday album and fourth studio album, Merry Christmas. “Christmas” is an uptempo love song that includes bell chimes and heavy back-up vocals, as well as use of synthesizers.

The song’s lyrics declare that the narrator does not care about Christmas presents or lights; all she wants for Christmas is to be with her lover.

IOTD …. Image of the Day …. Special Edition …. “Santa’s Fuel for Tonight …. carrots for his trusty reindeer ….”!!

CHRISTMAS EVE

This Christmas Eve, millions of American children will leave out cookies and milk for Santa Claus to enjoy after his trip down their chimney with his bag of gifts. Some will add a few carrots for his trusty reindeer, as Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph need sustenance as well.

But it hasn’t always been that way.

According to one theory, the cookies-and-milk custom is derived from an older tradition, when families would stuff stockings with goodies for Santa and hang them by the chimney, his preferred mode of entrance, as a welcoming gift. Now, however, those stockings are usually chock-full of treats and smaller gifts for the family members themselves.
