By Ben Ellison
Damp chill, dark nights
Warm house, warm lights
Why do these bring me so much glee?
It’s what Christmas is to me.
It’s baby Jesus, in a manger born
It’s using hot cocoa to fend off a snowstorm
It’s wrapping presents as the music plays
It’s seeing the joy on a child’s face
It’s a time of great laughter
It’s a time of great fun
It’s the sound of a family becoming one.
