Thread Name: My favourite Christmas songs
Subject: RE: My favourite Christmas song
Luckily, we have it in the digitrad The Holly and the Ivy Singing it just makes me happy! What more could you ask?

As I, personally, put more emphasis on the solstice than on Christ's birth at this time of year, I wrote some of my own lyrics for the some of the verses (chorus stays the same):

Oh the Holly tree bears a blossom
As white as any milk
And the first light of this Yule dawn
Is shimmering like the silk

Oh the Holly tree bears a berry
As green as any grass
And the growing light of these days
Reminds us that winter will pass

Oh the Holly tree bears a berry
As red as any blood
And as the year turns we all do vow
To use our lives for the good
