Christmas Day

Morning.

Snow covered rooftop, lights on the trees...


The sound of singing I hear down every street

Families have gather from miles away



Oh Merry Christmas, it's Christmas Day


You see that old tree down cotton lane



Those lights keep shining it's always the same



We hear the church bells ring out to say


Oh Merry Christmas. It's Christmas day


See the lights and hang the stockings


Decorate with green and red


Made the cookies for old santa


Made a runway for his sled


Singing carols on a sleigh ride


Gather 'round the manger scene


Open presents and read the letters


And together we will sing A Merry Christmas


Joy to the world


For every nation


for every boy and girl


Let's light a candle


for peace we pray


Oh Merry Christmas


It's Christmas day


Ooooooh


It's Christmas Day.

*Michael W. Smith and Mandisa, Christmas Day



Evening

A wonderful Christmas Day feast was followed by a Christmas night feast with our dear friends, the Sanfords.


The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis



For centuries men have kept an appointment with Christmas. Christmas means fellowship, feasting, giving and receiving, a time of good cheer, home. ~W.J. Ronald Tucker



Christmas is not as much about opening our presents
as opening our hearts. ~Janice Maeditere



Perhaps the best Yuletide decoration is being wreathed in smiles. ~Author Unknown




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!
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow



Happy New Year, Y'all!
