If your grandma used to make it, we probably have the ingredients and directions here!
Santa with a dirigible to deliver the goodies
May this and every Christmas time
Bring happiness to thee and thine
A Merry Christmas
“All joy to you, the bells’ sweet chime, make light your heart at Christmas-time.”
When merry chimes salute the day, and carols echo bright and gay, I hope your wishes you will see, all growing on your Christmas tree.
Christmas Day is for the young
When the little stockings hung.
Santa Claus, the good old Saint
Listens to each childish plaint
