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!
When Christmas Day does finally come,
It’s so excitin’ and so fun!
I wake up early when I see,
How Santa Claus remembered me!
Sometimes he brings me brand new socks…
Might put them in a fine wood box.
Maybe a sweater Santa’d bring…
To wear when carols we would sing!
Sometimes a new green jacket’s fine,
That Santa brings for me…just mine!
But mostly Santa brings us Love…
From God, our Father, who’s above,
In Heaven, where He waits for when
The time comes that He says we can
Be with Him there forevermore…
‘Tis true, ’tis said…this is not lore.
But while we still live on the Earth,
We celebrate Lord Jesus birth,
With lots of Family food and fun,
From early morn, till day is done!
We love to laugh and sing and play,
More than we do most every day!
‘Tis special things that take our time
While we do hear Christmas bells chime.
We have grand meals that are dee-lish…
All fav’rite foods of we, Irish!
And then we dance, and dance, and dance…
Just everytime we have a chance!
Our music goes on all the day,
While angels sing, our fiddles play!
But there is something that we do
On Christmas day for us…and you!
We take lots of our pot’s gold dust…
To scatter it we feel we must…
So all the world can know ’tis true,
That Christmas gives a merry view!
Christmas has come to help us be
The real and true “good” you and me!
So when you see gold dust around,
Though you may not have heard a sound,
Who scattered it may have been me,
Or some Leprechaun you can’t see!
There could be gold dust on the ground,
That isn’t easy to be found…
But flowers…they could sometimes shine
By clumps of gold dust that is fine.
And sometimes lots of gold dust clings,
And forms a grand, gold ball that brings
Fine brightness and gold sparkly light,
That is a brilliant heav’nly sight!
Just a few days now, and ’twill be,
God’s only Son’s Nativity!
The Earth will glisten with our gold,
Just as it’s been from days of old.
The angels sang for Jesus’ Birth,
Peace for good-willed folks on the Earth!
So, everything is now in place,
To celebrate that joyful space
Where Heaven and the Earth did meet,
For God’s amazin’, grandest Feat!
We’ll sing and feast and laugh and play,
To celebrate Jesus’ Birthday!
Our music and our pot’s gold dust…
All give us great reason to trust,
That we’ve prepared in fine, grand ways,
For this amazin’ Day of days!
Our decorations are all set,
And they, for the world, will help let
All people know the Word was born,
On that fine, grand, first Christmas morn!
‘Tis most important that we pray…
Give thanks to God for this fine Day…
Give thanks to God for His dear Son,
Who loved us all…salvation won…
Give thanks to God for how we’re blest
To live in Faith…Hope for the best
Of Love in life and all that’s good,
Just like God always planned we would.
We Leprechauns are grateful for
Our place in Irish life and lore.
We hope that you are grateful, too,
For all that God has given you.
This Christmastime helps us think right,
About the Way, Truth, and the Light!
I hope your Christmas Eve brings you,
To Christmas morn with thoughts anew
Of how God loves each of us… all,
No matter whether short or tall!
I just can’t wait for Christmas Day!
God bless you is what I do say!
