Christmas everywhere

Let it be Christmas everywhere
In the hearts of all people both near and afar
Feel the love of the season wherever you are
On the small country roads lined with green mistletoe
Big city streets where a thousand lights glow

Let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let every heart sing - let every bell ring
The story of hope and joy and peace

Let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let anger and fear and hate disappear
Let there be love that lasts through the year
And let it be Christmas
Christmas everywhere

Let it be Christmas everywhere
With the gold and the silver, the green and the red
In the smiles of all children asleep in their beds
In the eyes of young babies their first fallen snow
Elderlys' memories that never grow old

Let it be Christmas everywhere
In the songs that we sing and the gifts that we bring
In what this day means and what we believe
From the sandy white beaches where blue water rolls
Snow covered mountains and valleys below

Let it be Christmas everywhere
Let heavenly music fill the air
Let every heart sing let every bell ring
The story of hope and joy and peace
And let it be Christmas everywhere

Let heavenly music fill the air
Let anger and fear and hate disappear
Let there be love that lasts through the year
And let it be Christmas, Christmas everywhere


- written and sung by fellow Georgian and good ol' country music singer, Alan Jackson

That's a cute and different Christmas wreath. Is it your handiwork?

I like the sentiments of the song. Hope it feels like Christmas in your home, too.

No, not my handiwork, store-bought. I saw this a few years ago when we first had to start wearing 'reading' glasses and it reminded me of us, just had to get it.

Cute wreath! Love the song. That Alan Jackson can write them and sing them and he's good looking too!

Now wouldn't that be a Christmas present to end all Christmas presents?
