is christmas dying?
holly that hang from the door is disappearing,
lights don’t shine so bright.
christmas goodwill and spirit is hard to be found,
feeling i’ve found my scrooge.
is it now that i’ve grown i see a different picture,
not so tinted in green and gifts.
santa filling my stocking,
everything such a dream through a child eyes.
nativity plays being played at school,
the birth of christ instilled into our lives.
life is changing with so many different cultures and beliefs.
will the true meaning be lost?
when we have people digging a hole with their wallets.
christmas is not about the biggest present,
or how much money you’ve spent.
christmas for me is about love,
giving it through goodwill, with a smile or just being there.
people may lose faith in religion,
never lose faith in christmas,
christmas is love!
(1)Dashing thro' the snow,奔驰过雪地，
In a one-horse open sleigh,一只有马无蓬的雪车，
O'er the fields we go,我们越过田野，
Laughing all the way;一路笑语不绝；
Bells on bobtail ring,铃儿在截短的马尾上响叮当，
Making spirits ight使我们的精神愉快；
What fun it is to ride and sing今晚驾着雪车唱雪车歌
A sleighing song tonight!快乐似活神仙！
(Refrain:) Jingle, bells! Jingle, bells!（反复）铃儿响！铃儿响！
Jingle all the way!一路响叮当！
Oh! What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh!
(2)Now the ground is white,大地一片雪白，
Go it while you're young;趁着年轻去吧；
Take the girls tonight,今夜带着女孩们，
And sing this sleighing song.唱着雪车歌。
Just get a bob-tailed bay,找只短尾褐马，
Two-forty for his speed;每分钟240步；
then hitch him to an open sleigh,系在无蓬雪车上，
And crack! You'll take the lead.劈啪劈啪！由你带路。
Evergreen boughs that fill our homes
With fragrant Christmas scents,
Hearts filled with the loving glow
That Christmas represents;
Christmas cookies, turkeys stuffed,
Festive holly berry,
Little faces bright with joy,
Loved ones being merry;
Parties, songs, beribboned gifts,
Silver bells that tinkle,
Christmas trees and ornaments,
Colorful lights that twinkle;
Relatives waiting with open arms
To smile and hug and kiss us;
These are some of the special joys
That come along with Christmas.
