Do you Believe?

Sheryl has posted a Word prompt: Believe and instantly this Christmas song from my childhood came into my head. It was a big hit in the UK and you still sometimes hear it, but I don’t know how widely it is known.

The message is quite interesting, not just about believing in Father Christmas but believing in other things too, like hope.

Song Lyrics:

They said there’ll be snow at Christmas
They said there’ll be peace on earth
But instead, it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the virgin’s birth
I remember one Christmas morning
A winters light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell
And their eyes full of tinsel and fire

They sold me a dream of christmas
They sold me a silent night
And they told me a fairy story
’till I believed in the israelite
And I believed in father christmas
And I looked at the sky with excited eyes
’till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
And I saw him and through his disguise

I wish you a hopeful Christmas
I wish you a brave new year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there’ll be snow at Christmas
They said there’ll be peace on earth
Hallelujah Noel be it heaven or hell
The Christmas you get you deserve

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
