    Re: Merry Christmas/Holidays!

    A poem/song by JETHRO TULL

    "Jack Frost And The Hooded Crow"

    Through long December nights we talk in words of rain or snow,
    while you, through chattering teeth, reply and curse us as you go.
    Why not spare a thought this day for those who have no flame
    to warm their bones at Christmas time?
    Say Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow.

    Now as the last broad oak leaf falls, we beg: consider this:
    there's some who have no coin to save for turkey, wine or gifts.
    No children's laughter round the fire, no family left to know.
    So lend a warm and a helping hand:
    say Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow.
    As holly pricks and ivy clings, your fate is none too clear.
    The Lord may find you wanting, let your good fortune disappear.
    All homely comforts blown away and all that's left to show
    is to share your joy at Christmas time
    with Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow.

    Through long December nights we talk in words of rain or snow,
    while you, through chattering teeth, reply and curse us as you go.
    Why not spare a thought this day for those who have no flame
    to warm their bones at Christmas time?
    Say Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow.

    To think I was about to start a similar thread yesterday. Anyway, you guys in the southern hemisphere are lucky, because for once in my life, I actually wanted a warm and balmy Christmas! =P Down here in the South, we know neither extreme in weather during this time of year, so it's rather chilly and boring, with no snow or a need for sandals. XD

    Ah well, at least this year I got to make Christmas cards for some of my friends and plan on buying Minecraft for my little cousin's shiny new mini tablet, so it's a great year for giving to me, even if I had to make most of my gifts in the form of digitally drawn Christmas cards. XD

    Merry Christmas to all you great guys and gals on the forums! Hope you have a great season whether you celebrate the winter with a Christmas tree or a set of candles, or none of that at all.

    EDIT : Gremlinzzz totally ninja'd me, but that's a great poem I've never heard before; it really makes you think.

    Much like "A Christmas Song," "Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow" reminds the listener to be charitible and compassionate at Christmas, lest the fates take away what the listener has.

    Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow are symbols of cold and death, respectively.
