{haul out the holly}

edited to add: Congrats, Tracey! LOL Since you're the only one that signed up, you're definitely the winner of the papers! I hope you enjoy them :)

Mame:
Haul out the holly;
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again.
Fill up the stocking,
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now.
For we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry;
So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.
Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.
For I've grown a little leaner,
Grown a little colder,
Grown a little sadder,
Grown a little older,
All:
And I need a little angel
Sitting on my shoulder,
Need a little Christmas now.
Mame:
Haul out the holly;
Well, once I taught you all to live each living day.
All:
Fill up the stocking,
Young Patrick:
But Auntie Man, it's one week from Thanksgiving Day now.
All:
But we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
Agnes:
It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry;
Ito:
So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.
All:
Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.
For we need a little music,
Need a little laughter,
Need a little singing
Ringing through the rafter,
And we need a little snappy
"Happy ever after,"
Need a little Christmas now.
Need a little Christmas now.

It's my favorite song right now :) Every time I hear it, it makes me smile and puts a little spring in my step. What's your favorite Christmas or holiday song? If you leave a comment letting me know, I'll put your name in a drawing for a BUNCH of papers that I'd like to gift to someone. They aren't old papers, just ones that I don't think I'll use or already have duplicates of. Lots of bolder prints since I'm not doing much bold, that sort of thing.... So, please be sure to leave a comment by Monday, December 22nd if you'd like a chance for them.

And here are a couple of recent publications for me - I've been very blessed this year! Thanks for sharing it all with me :) (I'll have a little more to share in January and February of next year, too!)
In Scrapbooking Memories, volume 10, number 7:
