Hello, my Friend! Hello today!
I hope you are in a good way!
No matter rain, sleet, snow, or shine,
I always hope your day is fine!
Oh, my! I am so very full!
Thanksgivin’ food is wonderful!
Potatties, fruits and apple bake…
Dee-lish food — me Mum does make!
But now more new fun does begin,
As Christmastime just rolls right in.
The pine cones on the grand pine trees,
Can be gathered with such great ease…
Me Mum will make her honey cakes,
And, OF COURSE, her apple bakes!
Christmas also brings special treats,
Like berry bakes and other sweets.
The seaweed and the green bean stew
Are also specials that we do!
We have so much to speak of here,
‘Twill be grand fun…just have no fear!
We Leprechauns have fine, grand ways
of celebratin’ Christmas Days…
‘Tis this we’re speakin’ of right now,
And I will tell you more of how
We ready for the Child’s Birth,
Who brought Peace to our troubled Earth.
St. Pat taught us so long ago,
About how God, His Love, did show,
By giving us His only Son
To teach us of God – Three in One.
And when our little Lord was born
On that day…the first Christmas morn…
The Angels sang “Rejoice, rejoice!”
So sweetly with their heav’nly voice!
So, we sing, too… our best we sing,
For Little Jesus, Lord and King!
We practice lots for Christmas Day,
And sing out in Leprechaun Way!
We sing, “Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas to you!”
I’ll tell you more of fun we do,
It’s so much fun to talk to you!
Some gold dust from our pots o’ gold,
That we’ve cared for since days of old,
We sprinkle here and sprinkle there,
So, gold might shimmer anywhere!
There’s more to tell, but I must go!
There’s Christmas work I have, you know…
I’ll bet that you may have some, too…
Finish by Christmas, you must do!
But, as you go about your day,
You might see gold dust and you may
Remember it might be from me,
Just hidin’ where you can not see!
I am so glad you’ve read my rhyme!
I am so glad it’s Christmastime!
I am so glad we talked today!
God bless you is what I do say!
Note from Nannie…It will be fun for us to look for the different accounts of the Birth of Baby Jesus in the Bible! St. Matthew and St. Luke tell us wonderful stories of this incredible event in the history of God’s Family of Man!
