Christmas Songs

I was driving through a quaint little part of Lincoln earlier this week and strung between two lampposts was a huge sign that said, "Seasons Greetings".  Apparently someone was a little slow this year taking down the decorations.  (The sign said "seasons" not "season's" just so you know.)

Thanks to Hallie we've still been feeling quite a bit of the Christmas season around here as well.  Every single night before bed since before Christmas she has requested that I sing "Silent Night", or as she calls it, "the Jesus song" - because, as she assures me, it is Jesus' favorite song.  I didn't know that, but I am perfectly willing to believe it.

Not only does she request that I sing that to her at night, but she is still joyfully wandering around the house singing Christmas songs at top volume for all in the house to enjoy.  I thought I'd share with you some of her "creative" lyrics. For your convenience I have put the traditional lyrics on the other side.

Then one froggy Christmas Eve                            Then one foggy Christmas Eve
and they shouted out with leaves                           and they shouted out with glee
the stars in the Devin                                            the stars in the heaven
till morning is night                                               till morning is nigh
Frosting the snowman                                          Frosty the snowman

Has anyone in your house been caught singing Christmas songs?


  1. Just about every day I get a lovely rendition of "Jingle Bells". Although, it is "Tinkle Bells" and I'm pretty sure she thinks the song is about Tinker Bell. Mia also asks for "The pretty song" at naptime, which is "Silent Night".

  2. It is definitely not every day, but Parker has sang "Santa Clause is coming to town" a couple of times over the past few weeks.

  3. We get renditions of "frosty the HOman" and "jingle bell rocket" almost daily! Looks like Christmas is lingering all over this year!

  4. Don't worry. You weren't supposed to see us at the door when we dropped off the Valentine. We were just knocking and running. That's how we did Valentines when I was little:)

  5. I love to Hallie sing to me over the phone. That's when I hear the loveliest songs ever!

  6. I love Hallie's version. :)

    Jill for the last few nights has been asking for "Fluffy's Song." Sigh. I have no idea what that is. I try to sing other songs, and she just says "No" and asks for Fluffy's Song, so I end up just putting her in her crib with no song. (She still gets the rest of the night routine of course.) "Fluffy" is how she pronounces "Zoe" from Sesame Street. So she may be asking for "Zoe's Song." That doesn't help me though. I don't know what that is either. I know Elmo's Song and Cookie's Song and Ernie's Song. She asks for Bert's Song, too. And I don't know what that is either. I have tried to make one up, but she was not impressed. Ha.

  7. Oh, and I catch myself singing Christmas songs every now and then. :) I don't mind though!!
