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…

576

Me Mum will make her honey cakes,

And, OF COURSE, her apple bakes!

 552

 Christmas also brings special treats,

Like berry bakes and other sweets.

 519

The seaweed and the green bean stew

Are also specials that we do!

 553

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,

2035

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…

682

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,

570

We sprinkle here and sprinkle there,

So, gold might shimmer anywhere!

259

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!

  1. To my dear Friend S from your dear Friend Finney!

    ‘Tis grand that it is Christmastime!
    And that you’ve read my Christmas rhyme!
    We have some time ‘fore Christmas day,
    To ready things of Christmas way!
    I hope your home is cozy warm,
    And that hot apple bake’s your norm!
    ‘Cause that’s the way Me Mum does things,
    And Christmastime will find she sings
    As she makes sure our home is nice…
    With winter foods that will suffice!
    Each day we try to keep in mind,
    St. Pat taught us all to be kind…
    All days, but surely Christmastime,
    To celebrate the Babe Sublime!
    I hope for all good things for you…
    For you and for your Family, too!
    I thank you that you wrote to me,
    It always makes be happy be!
    Have a fine, grand and wondrous day!
    God bless you is what I do say!

    1. Oh, Yes! Our pot o’ gold’s gold dust…
      To scatter it we feel we must…
      So all the world can know ’tis true,
      That Christmas gives a merry view!
      With all the world we love to share
      Our thanks to God for all His care.
      When our gold dust shimmers so bright,
      We like to think it’s like the light
      Of that grand Star of long ago.
      The Star whose light proclaimed the Birth
      Of Jesus, God, Who came to Earth.
      But always know that when you see
      Any grand gold dust…shimmer-y…
      I might just be quite close to you,
      But out of sight…out of your view!
      For your notes, I thank you today!
      God bless you is what I do say!
