The Very Best Time of Year

Christmas trees and boughs of holly,
Yuletide logs and mistletoe,
Candles burning bright and meadows frosty white,
and faces in the firelight's glow.

Sounds of happy children's voices,
Singing carols that you love to hear.
Then the silence of the night
and the winter air so still and clear.

Feels like you could reach and touch the sky,
or catch a star and fly away,
Feels like you could wish for peace on earth,
and all at once it would come some day.

Families and friends together
Feel a special kind of love and cheer,
Sharing all the joys of Christmas time.
The very best time of year.

- That shining magic time of year.
