Christ­mas Long Ago

Sherbrooke Record - - CLASSIFIED -

Christ­mas meant so much to me

When I was just a child

We went to the for­est for a Christ­mas tree And the day was usu­ally mild

The tree was dec­o­rated

With strings of pop­corn you see

The lights were can­dles with hold­ers Lighted, then blew out with glee!

To-day it’s very dif­fer­ent

With ar­ti­fi­cial trees and elec­tric lights And we smell the bal­sam

Can­dles, re­placed by elec­tric lights

Oh! The days of yester years Were sim­ple and plain you see Ev­ery­one en­joyed each other It’s so dif­fer­ent now for me!
