for good food and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand
and a talk beside the fire:

If you haven't got a ha' penny
Then God Bless You!

The Ultimate Christmas List

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my grown-up Christmas list.

One can hear the falling snow.

For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home.

The first fall of snow is not only an event,
it is a magical event.

and wake up in another quite different,
and if this is not enchantment
then where is it to be found?

Snow Had Fallen Snow On Snow

In the bleak midwinter
Frosty wind made moan
Earth stood hard as iron
Water like a stone
Snow had fallen snow on snow
Snow on snow
In the bleak midwinter
Long, long ago

And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you
