Let's have an old-fashioned Christmas,
What a day of delight it will be.
We will hang up the wreath made of cedar,
And we will bring home the fresh spruce tree.

Candlelight shines by each window,
Sprigs of holly grace the mantel and door,
The sweet smell of gingerbread cookies
Joins puddings and pies by the score.

The sleds deftly skim frozen hilltops,
Velvet snowflakes in radiance beam,
And ice skaters glide like quicksilver
In winter moonlight's golden gleam.

Make it an old-fashioned Christmas,
May each waiting heart feel the glow
That grows with the ringing of slight bells
Drifting over the soft-silvered snow.
