Christmas Time is Here

Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

(if by "children" you mean... the Boston Celtics, who are 27-2 heading into their Christmas Day game against the Lakers)

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

(speaking of which, did you hear that Evander Holyfield made a comeback? Went eight rounds against Ruslan Chagaev. Acquitted himself reasonably well, too, though he lost the decision)

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

(the 1995 Atlanta Braves. Greg Maddux: 19-2, 1.63 ERA. He's retired now, but he'll live on in my memories)

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year...

(Spirit fingers!!!)

Merry Christmas, everyone.
