It’s Christmas Time

And time for a carol…

Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite songs on the Carpenters’ Christmas Portrait album. It is a coveted part of my Christmas collection. I can’t imagine celebrating the holidays without the Carpenters. The Carpenters were the #1 selling American music act of the 1970s but, poor Karen. She was so very talented and her death brought awareness to anorexia which had previously been something that was hardly ever talked about.

I hope that you are enjoying this week leading up to Christmas. If you do not celebrate this holiday I wish you merriment and cheer of a different sort. I hope that you are able to take some time off to spend with your family and friends. The most important lesson we can learn from this season is how important relationships are and it is not about the rampant consumerism but rather the love of our neighbor that brings us together at the holidays.

God bless! 🙂

As always, here are the lyrics so you can sing along:

It’s Christmas time and time for a carol

Time to sing about the little King

To fill the bowl and roll out the BARREL

Have ourselves a fling

We greet a friend or welcome a stranger

Let him sing OR cheer him on his way

And celebrate the child in the manger

Born on Christmas day

Good cheer for you and for me

With pleasure and glee to share

Oh, we’re so happy to be together

On yuletide square

It looks like snow

And falls like snow

Take a moment

Take a look about and say

As snowflakes fall

Merry Christmas to one and all

Sleep well, little children, wherever you are
Tomorrow is Christmas beneath every star
Soon the snowflakes will fall, and tomorrow you’ll see
Every wish, one and all, waiting under the tree

Sleep well, little children, pleasant dreams through the night
Tomorrow is Christmas, all merry and bright
Soon you’ll hear the bells ring, time for dreams to come true
As the world waits, you dream
Merry Christmas to you!
