Merry Christmas—spicy smells,

Sounds of joy, jingling bells;

Candy canes, mistletoe,

Popcorn strings, candleglow;

Merry Christmas—snow-flocked trees,

Pinecone balls, cranberries;

Satin bows, stockings hung,

Cookie treats, carols sung;

Merry Christmas—starlit skies,

Gingerbread, fragrant pies.

On the go, sharing fun—

Christ is born, the Holy One.
