While Alistair remains the “Scrooge” of my heart; and Beaker the muppet there of, here again are two of my favourite songs from the Muppet Christmas Carol. (First posted, Christmas 2015 – another blog of Christmas past.)

Wherever You Find Love it Feels Like Christmas

It’s in the singing of a street corner choir
It’s going home and getting warm by the fire
It’s true, where ever you find love, it feels like Christmas (boys)

A cup of kindness that we share with another
A sweet reunion with a friend or a brother
In all the places you find love, it feels like Christmas (girls)

It is the season of the heart
A special time of caring
The ways of love made clear (boys)
It is the season of the spirit
The message if we hear it
Is ‘Make it last all year’ (girls)

It’s in the giving of a gift to another
A pair of mittens that were made by your mother
It’s all the ways that we show love that feel like Christmas ( girls)

A part of childhood we’ll always remember
It is the summer of the soul in December
It’s when you do your best for love, it feels like Christmas (girls & boys)

It is the season of the heart
A special time of caring
The ways of love made clear (boys)
It is the season of the spirit
The message if we hear it
Is ‘Make it last all year’ (girls)

It’s in the singing of a street corner choir
It’s going home and getting warm by the fire
It’s true, where ever you find love, it feels like Christmas (all)

It’s true, where ever you find love
It feels like Christmas
It feels like Christmas
It feels like Christmas
It feels like Christmas (all)

 

With a Thankful Heart

With a thankful heart
With an endless joy
With a growing family
Every girl and boy
Will be nephew and niece to me
(Nephew and niece to me)
Will bring love, hope and peace to me
(Love, hope and peace to me)
Yes, and every night will end
And every day will start
With a grateful prayer
And a thankful heart
With an open smile and with open doors
I will bid you welcome
What is mine is yours
With a glass raised to toast your health

What is mine is yours
With a glass raised to toast your health
(With a glass raised to toast your health)
And a promise to share the wealth
(Promise to share the wealth)
I will sail a friendly course
File a friendly chart
On a sea of love and a thankful heart
Life is like a journey
Who knows when it ends?
Yes, and if you need to know
The measure of a man
You simply count his friends
Stop and look around you
The glory that you see
Is born again each day
Don’t let it slip away
How precious life can be
With a thankful heart that is wide awake
I do make this promise
Every breath I take
Will be used now to sing your praise
(Used now to sing your praise)
And beg you to share my day
(Beg you to share my days)
With a loving guarantee
That even if we part
I will hold you close in a thankful heart
I will hold you close in a thankful heart
In a thankful heart! 

Wishing one and all, a warm space, a friendly hug, a pinch of pixie dust, and the magic that this season can bring. Lorraine, December 25, 2017
