Snow falls from the rooftops, whispering without a sound
Fog forms in the crisp night air, shimmering white on the ground
It’s Christmas, oh it’s Christmas! Yellows and reds and greens
It’s Christmas, oh it’s Christmas! The most magical day that we’ve seen
Friends and families together, dancing and singing alive.
In their warm sparkly sweaters Grandma happened to find
Like a flower, a flame, it blooms
Midnight hour, golden rooms
The smell of smoke, it drifts on by
You might notice the smell of pine
Oh, it’s so divine, so divine!
