Christmas songs we like for one reason or another

Last week I put four bags of groceries into the food bin at the grocery store. Whenever I have too much money I tend to buy food and give it to the Pantry. No other time of the year do I do it more than this time of year. My favorite song has a poignant message that I tend to embrace. I don't equate the message to Karma, but to the lightness of a persons Heart. I don't need or desire crowds of friends surrounding me, after all I'm a curmudgeonly hermit. I do try to do what I feel is right and somethings like giving make me happy. Knowing there are folks that couldn't make it without the help, eases and lightens my heart knowing I've done something positive. Please enjoy my favorite Xmas song.

They said there'll be snow at christmas
They said there'll be peace on earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the virgin's birth
I remember one christmas morning
A winters light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that christmas tree smell
And their eyes full of tinsel and fire

They sold me a dream of christmas
They sold me a silent night
And they told me a fairy story
'till I believed in the israelite
And I believed in father christmas
And I looked at the sky with excited eyes
'till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise

I wish you a hopeful christmas
I wish you a brave new year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there'll be snow at christmas
They said there'll be peace on earth
Hallelujah noel be it heaven or hell
The christmas you get you deserve
