I wanted to participate in this week’s Sunday Stills Christmas Song Lyric Challenge and went looking for the holly and the ivy. Unfortunately, they were not full grown so I had to settle for these berries in my garden.
Then I considered other Christmas carols:
O Holy Night! ~ Hark the Herald Angels Sing! ~ Silent Night!
but there were no pictures to adequately convey the spiritual nature of these songs.
I soon realized I was getting too complicated so when I saw Frosty the Snowman next door, I went down a frosty path.
All that frostiness reminded me of another of my favorite holiday songs.
“Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire’s so delightful,
and since there’s no place to go –
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”
Yes, I love the snow and hope we’ll get some this year! But if we don’t we can head to Mt. Rainier,
and if we’re lucky we may see the moonrise over the mountain.
Which might do for Silent Night, after all.
