Christmas Long Ago
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!
