It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

LA, la la la la.

Come to think of it…it IS Christmas.

Wednesday, December 25, 2013.

Fa la la la LA, la la la la.

‘Tis the season to be jolly.

‘Tis indeed.

Who’s been naughty?

Who’s been nice?

We’ve had rain.

We’ve had ice.

Which means a glorious Spring.

Bluebonnets now play peek-a-boo.

Calling, “We’ll be seeing you.”

In all the old familiar places.

And all the old familiar faces.

But that’s weeks away.

We’ve got Winter.

And most immediately, we’ve got Christmas.

Holy, holy night.

Star of wonder, star of night.

Guide us to thy perfect Light.

Midnight clear.

Angels bending near the earth.

Hark! The herald angels sing.

Joy to the world.

Let heaven and nature sing.

Peace on earth.

Goodwill toward Men.

Joyful, all ye nations rise.

All that is and ever will be.

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 were 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.

That’s Mason.
