The Wassail Song

Here we come a-wassailing


Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wand'ring
So fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

We are not daily beggers


That beg from door to door,
But we are neighbors' children
Whom you have seen before
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Good master and good mistress,


As you sit beside the fire,
Pray think of us poor children
Who wander in the mire.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year

Made of ratching leather skin;
We want some of your small change
To line it well within.

A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

And spread it with a cloth;
Bring us out a cheese,
And of your Christmas loaf.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Likewise the mistress too;
And all the little children
That round the table go.

Away in a Manger

Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky


Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing


The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus


Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle,
'Til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus,


I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray

Bless all the dear children


In Thy tender care
And take us to heaven
To live with Thee there.

Joy to the World

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!


Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world, the Savior reigns!


Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,


Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,


And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

The First Noel

The First Noel, the Angels did say


Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as
they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

They looked up and


saw a star
Shining in the East
beyond them far
And to the earth it
gave great light
And so it continued
both day and night.
Noel, Noel, Noel,
Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

And by the light of that same star


Three Wise men came from country far
To seek for a King was their intent

And to follow the star wherever it went.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

This star drew nigh to the northwest


O'er Bethlehem it took its rest
And there it did both Pause and stay
Right o'er the place where Jesus lay.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel


Born is the King of Israel!

Then entered in those Wise men three


Full reverently upon their knee
And offered there in His presence
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

Then let us all with one accord


Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
That hath made Heaven and earth of nought
And with his blood mankind has bought.

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

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,
A very Merry Christmas to you!

creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes

I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas


Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but bad.

I broke my bat on Johnny's head;


Somebody snitched on me.
I hid a frog in sister's bed;
Somebody snitched on me.

I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug;


I made Tommy eat a bug;
Bought some gum with a penny slug;
Somebody snitched on me.

Oh, I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas

Rudolph the Red Nosed
Reindeer!

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer


Had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
You would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer


Used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve


Santa came to say:
"Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the reindeer loved him


As they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
You'll go down in history!

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,


With a corncob pipe and a button nose,
And two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the children
know how he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that
Old silk hat they found.
For when they placed it on his head,
He began to dance around.

O, Frosty the snowman


Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh
And play just the same as you and me.

The sun was hot that day,
So he said, "Let's run and
we'll have some fun
now before I melt away."
Down to the village,
With a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there all
Around the square saying,
Catch me if you can.
He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop.
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler "Stop!"

For Frosty the snowman


Had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
"Don't you cry,
I'll be back again some day."

Grandma Got Run Over By A

Grandma got run over by a reindeer


walkin' home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa.
But as for me and Grandpa, we believe.

She'd been drinkin' too much egg nog.


And we'd begged her not to go.
But she'd forgot her medication,
and she staggered out the door into the snow.

When we found her Christmas mornin,'


at the scene of the attack.
She had hoof prints on her forehead,
And incriminatin' Claus marks on her back.

And a blue and silver candle,

"Better watch out for yourselves."
They should never give a license,

4 tablespoons lard
3-4 tablespoons ice cold water

cold water, starting with three tablespoons and adding the
fourth if needed, and knead about ten times. Form into a
disk, cover with plastic and chill for 30 or up to three days.

Once chilled, roll out the dough on a well floured surface.


Line the inside of a 9″ pie pan with the dough, making sure
not to pull or stretch the dough in the pan. Trim off any
excess leaving a 1″ border of dough hanging over the outside
of the pie pan. Gently tuck the dough under, making the
edge of the dough even with the edge of the pie pan, then
flute the dough with your fingers. Chill the prepared crust
while you prepare the filling.

In a medium bowl combine the butter, sugar, corn syrup,


coffee liqueur, vanilla, flour, and cinnamon. Whisk until
smooth then add the eggs and mix well.

In the bottom of the chilled crust evenly layer the pecans and
chocolate chips. Pour the filling mixture over the pecans and
chocolate.

Place the filled pie on the heated sheet pan and bake for 50
to 60 minutes, or until the filling is golden and puffed all
over. Check the pie after forty minutes and if the crust is
getting too dark wrap the edges in foil.

Allow to cool for two hours before serving.

Increase heat to Medium and bring to a full-rolling boil being
careful not to mistake escaping air bubbles for boiling.
Boil slowly, stirring constantly for 5 minutes (use Soft-Ball test
– see below).
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and chocolate until
chocolate is melted.
Add essential oil – stir in.
Turn into greased pan and cool.
Makes 2 1/2 pounds.

Soft-Ball test
Before you start cooking, fill a small dish with ice water and set
aside. After you have brought the recipe to a full boil for 4 minutes,
dribble a few drops of the mixture into the ice water from a wooden
spoon. After it cools in the water (about 10 seconds), you should be
able to roll it into small ball with your finger tips. If you put it in your
mouth, it will be slightly chewy. If it passes these tests, you are done
and should remove the mixture from heat and add the remaining
ingredients. Otherwise, cook for another 30 seconds and try the test
again. Most of the time, cooking time will not exceed 5 minutes.

Note: Peppermint is a very strong flavor –


pack any peppermint items away from
other cookies and candies or everything
will taste of peppermint.
