A-Blog Caroling We Go: Christmas Time is Here

While not a Christmas carol in the traditional sense, this song remains one of my favorites, ever since I first heard it on "A Charlie Brown Christmas" as a child. Hearing it stirs such vivid memories that I'm usually bawling like a little girl before it's over.

Christmas Time is Here

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year...
