‘Twas the day after Christmas

Here comes the letdown, Christmas is over
Here comes the meltdown, there goes the cheer
But before we have a breakdown, let us remember
The light of the world is still here

Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
The light of the world

So take down the stockings, take back the sweaters
Take down the lights and the star and the tree
But don’t let this world take your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world and just sing

Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here

  1. Perhaps “The light of the world is still here”
    ……but have you been watching the ‘service-to-property-charge’ soaring towards the heavens.
    DIY candles are looking like a more practical option. Not as bright, but much more user-friendly.

    Meanwhile, another sign of the times:- an few hours ago I saw the smiling visage of Nelson Mandela ~ remember him?? ~ selling baked beans or whatever it was on TV.
    ….and even after many tens of millions of visitors to Lenin’s tomb, more recently he’s become more of a tourist trap than a pilgrimage for russians.

    Superficial is as superficial does, to misquote Forrest Gump.

    Never mind: New Year celebrations aren’t far off!

    ………….Meanwhile the Police State breeds like a most malign cancer across the face of the lighted world …….

  2. Just reading that made me feel happy.

    Can I add just one more music carol? This one is actually from the 12th century! I like the Irish lilt and it has YoYo Ma who is my nephew’s favourite cellist (when he was learning through secondary college).
