Goin' Home for Christmas
My heart is just so full of joy
It does a song and dance.
Plain, old, unvarnished grief and woe
Today don't have a chance.
I am goin' back, I tell you. . .yes,
In spite of snow or rain,
I'm going back to Mother's house
For Christmas once again.
At other times I may feel low
And all my troubles seem
A bit too much. . . but on this day
My life's a happy dream.
Oh, the wreaths are in the windows
And the tree is dressed up fine,
And I'm heading home for Christmas
With the folks that I call mine.
The house is not a palace,
But it will look good to me;
When celebrating Christmas,
Home's the only place to be.
The uncles, aunts and cousins
Will be coming in to call.
While the good old Christmas spirit
Brings some gaiety to all.
There will be some noisy chatter,
And some sad goodbyes at last,
But I'll have golden memories
To cherish when it's past.
I want to put my feet beneath
That table one more time. . .
I want to dream of days back
When life was a lilting rhyme.
A Christmas dinner when you're home
Is manna from above,
They season everything you eat-
Or say-with honest love.
Back home again for Christmas!
That is a pretty phrase;
I've carried it within my heart
For many hopeful days.
I don't care where you've settled
Or how far you've chance to roam,
When it is time for Christmas,
That's the time to be at home.
Now may your Christmas be the best
To trip along life's lane,
And my you spend it happily. . .
With home folks once again.

Dreaming of Diamonds
On Christmas morning a woman told her husband,
“I just dreamed that you gave me a beautiful diamond necklace.
What do you think it means?”
“You’ll know tonight,” he said.
That evening just before opening presents,
the husband came home with a small package and gave it to his wife.
Delighted, she opened it only to find a book entitled “The Meaning of Dreams.”
