The Senses of Christmas #flashfiction #Christmas

Can you smell it, feel it, hear  it?

Of course I can

It’s the senses of Christmas

Gingerbread and shortbread in the oven

Pine from the tree

Spices of  hot cider congealing

Seasoned wood on the fire

Bing Crosby singing with his smooth as scotch voice

one more thing

Our Family gathered enjoying being together

Wishing all of you a joyous Christmas. A time to celebrate time with friends and family. A special thanks to G-Man who looks upon all his followers as good friends.

Let It Snow (revised #Lyrics) sung originally by Bing Crosby

Oh The weather outside is frightful

that’s not what the weather man promised

but the fire is so delightful

yes sparks are flying tonight

and since we’ve no place to go

Walmart’s having a sale

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

the song writers apparently had a snowplow

*

It doesn’t show signs of stopping

This snow is getting on my nerves

and I brought some corn for popping

can you go back for ice cream?

The lights are turned way down low

sparks are definitely flying

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

It’s going to be a chore digging out

*

when we finally kiss goodnight

you can tell this was written in the 40s

how I’ll hate going out in the storm

blame the lyricist not me

but if you really hold me tight

isn’t that what we’ve been doing?

all the way home I’ll be warm

your car does have heat

*

The fire is slowly dying

Finally the end to the song is near

and my dear were still good-bying

you CAN text when you get home

but as long as you love me so

at least until the guy at Walmart is available

Let it snow,Let  it snow, Let it snow

Enough of the snow already!!!

The song “Let it Snow” was a popular song in the late 40s and 50s; Bing Crosby sang a rendition with his fantastic voice. I thought I’d spice up the feeling a bit. Below are the original lyrics.

Let It Snow : Lyrics

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we’ve no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! 

It doesn’t show signs of stopping,
And I’ve bought some corn for popping,
The lights are turned way down low,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I’ll hate going out in the storm!
But if you’ll really hold me tight,
All the way home I’ll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we’re still good-bying,
But as long as you love me so,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

The wonderful Christmas song Let It Snow was created by lyricist Sammy Cahn and the composer Jule Styne in 1945. The words and lyrics of Let It Snow reflect the feeling of warmth and security associated with Christmas and also brings in the more modern customs of popping corn! The song Let It Snow was reprised in recent years when used in the Bruce Willis film Die Hard which started with the film’s hero travelling to meet his family at Christmas.
