Hoping this is what 2012 holds!

December 12th~ Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

"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 we 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!"

December 11th~ The Christmas Song

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way;
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
Merry Christmas
 to you!"

December 10th~ Oh What a Merry Christmas Day!

Here's a little known favorite of mine from the opening of Mickey's A Christmas Carol, which I loved as a kid and still adore today!

"Oh, what a merry christmas day
Hear the joyous music play
Bells are ringing choirs singing

Oh, what a merry christmas day
sharing the season of good cheer
with the ones we hold so dear
friendly faces, warm embraces
Oh, what a merry christmas day

snowflakes covered country lanes
Jack Frost painted window panes
twinkling stars on christmas trees
oh, what happy memories

gathered 'round a fireplace
fam'lies filled with love and grace
from peaceful ember's glow
blessed Yuletide spirits grow
grow and grow grow and grow

Joy to the children far and near
what a won'drous time of year
isn't is just grand to say
merry, merry christmas
merry, merry christmas
Oh, what a merry christmas day!"

December 9th~ All I Want for Christmas is You

"I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is...

December 8th~ Jingle Bell Rock

"Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell rock!"

December 7th~ I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm

"The snow is snowing and the wind is blowing
But I can weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
For I've got my love to keep me warm

I can't remember a worse december
Just watch those icicles form!
Oh, what do I care if icicles form?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm

Off with my overcoat, off with my glove
I need no overcoat, I'm burning with love!
My heart's on fire, the flame grows higher
So I will weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
Oh, I've got my love to keep me warm!"

December 6th~ White Christmas

"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white!"

December 5th~ That's what Christmas Means to Me

"Candles burnin low, lots of mistletoe
Lots of snow and ice, everywhere we go
Choirs singing carols, right outside my door

All these things and more
(all these things and more)
That's what Christmas means to me, my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me my love
Christmas means to me, my love
Christmas means to meeee, my love (oh!)"

December 4th~ Silver Bells

"City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
dressed in holiday style
In the air there's a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on ev'ry street corner you'll hear

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmastime in the city
Ring a ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day!"

Walking in a winter wonderland!"
