it's the most wonderful time of the year...

they'll be parties for hosting
marshmallows for roasting
and caroling out in the snow

(oh, that sounds nice. i like marshmallows. and who doesn't love caroling. in the snow, no less!)

they'll be scary ghost stories

(wait. what?)

and tales of the glories

(WAIT. go back, go back.)

of christmases long long ago

(no, no, no. can we get back to the thing you just sang about? no, not the parties part. the other thing. about the ghosts. yeah, because my childhood is filled with memories of us all sitting round the fire on christmas eve, sipping hot cocoa and trying to guess what santa will bring us and NOT getting the charles dickens scared out of us so we'd spill our hot cocoa everywhere possibly injuring one another, possibly outing an eye, even.)
