HOLIDAY SONGS (THE CHRISTMAS SONG)

Hello, everyone!

Today is our last day of Holiday Songs; we are finishing with the song "THE CHRISTMAS SONG." This is a classic Christmas song written in 1945 by Bob Wells and Mel Tormé. We're going to use the version by Nat King Cole today. In the song, Cole uses the word "AGLOW."

Definition of AGLOW: Glowing. 

Example 1 (from the song): Tiny tots, with their eyes all aglow / Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

Example 2: The sky was aglow from the fireworks. 

Example 3: The church was aglow from the candles. 

Here is the link to today's song:

And here you can read the lyrics:

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots, with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you


That's all for this week. Next week, we will have some fun holiday-related jokes.

Have a great weekend!
