The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.
Check.   Months ago. I don’t like to wait until the last minute.

Gonna build a Christmas Toyland all around the Christmas tree.
Check.   It’s called Reindeer Express at Winter WonderFest on Navy Pier!

Frosted window panes, candles gleaming inside.
Check.   Have been all day while I was wrapping, packing & baking!

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree.
Check.   Been singing all day long Especially the groovy “lounge” versions and
my all-time favorite Christmas song by Kay Starr – “The Man With The Bag.”

Oh, the weather outside is frightful.
Check.   Still snowing, I’m sure the streets will be slippery?!

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas.
Check.   It’s so beautiful outside with a fresh layer of clean, white snow.

We wish you a Merry Christmas. We wish you a Merry Christmas.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Well, now I can check that one off the list too!

Have yourself a merry little Christmas…
filled with great family & friends. Eating cookies. Making memories.
Be Safe. Have Fun. Fa, la, la, la…
