I have but one request,

For our planned Christmas,

Morn, Eve or Night.

As we Zoom in tight,

Could you open thus,

The presents from us,

One at a time,

With Jimmy,

Handing them out,


I loved that tradition,

That first Christmas,

Jim’s at our house,

You know me,

I much like to see,

Each person’s reaction,

Each one’s delight,

To gifts and stockings,

Given with care,

Even if St. Nicholas,

Be but half-way there,

Then happiness shared,

As we Zoom outta sight,

Merry Christmaslove,

To all,

And to All,

Xmas zoom-nite,

That night.

My favorite Christmas Carole of all time. I used to sing it in the Holy Name Boys Choir. I sang alto as Sister James Marie blared “Adeste”on the old pump organ with the towering brass pipes. She would have me sing in Bernard Otto’s ear to keep him on tune. Bernard and I keep in touch to this day. Sing it with me on this joyous occasion.

🎶Adeste Fideles🎶

Adeste Fideles laeti triumphantes,

Venite, venite in Bethlehem.

Natum videte, Regem Angelorum;

Venite adoremus,

Venite adoremus,

Venite adoremus


“And a Very Merry Christmas to All!”
