We WISH you a Merry Christmas

Finlay's pre-school gave a Christmas concert last week. Because its a church school it was an actual Nativity play. The Jr K class provided the music.





We have been regaled for several weeks with 'Away in a Manger' so it was nice to hear it performed live. The finale was 'We wish you a Merry Christmas' performed with much gusto.*



After the concert there was a small reception. Finlay and his friends enjoyed the festive snacks!



* I have always sung the verse demanding Figgy pudding when serving our Christmas pudding...Nigel only realized this week that I had not made up the verse when he heard it on the radio!

It's great to see all the pictures of the boys. Adam's face on his birthday is .... a picture of true pleasure.

I looked up the lyrics for "We wish you a merry Christmas" - there are slightly different versions for the demanding 2nd verse but the overall sentiment is clear!
I always sang "We all like figgy pudding so bring some out here" - still, it has survived from the 16th Century...

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer

We won't go until we get some;
We won't go until we get some;
We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
