O Christmas Tree

 Fld 60Pc 2 Chr Vintage Fldv1 Gacr G C0A80 60PcSome time ago, I spent Christmas Eve in London, cooking a dinner of grilled salmon on pasta, followed by a dessert of cherries and then a bottle of Scotch. It snowed that night, and quite heavily too. I woke up Christmas morning to take out the trash and fell on my backside on the iced-over pavement.

I wish I had a blog then. Then I’d remember at a click on the archives exactly what I did, and paraphrase a coupla more paragraphs than just the measly one. Or I could simply just put a link there. Like so:

  • 2004

    P.S. Mum’s put up a real Christmas tree again in the living room, so the place smells of pine (and the dead tree will be a bitch to dispose of later).

    O Tannenbaum

    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    Wie treu sind deine Blätter.
    Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit,
    Nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.
    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    Wie treu sind deine Blätter.
    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    du kannst mir sehr gefallen.
    Wie oft hat nicht zur Weihnachtszeit
    Ein Baum von dir mich hoch erfreut.
    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    du kannst mir sehr gefallen.

    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    dein Kleid will mich was lehren:
    die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
    gibt Trost und Kraft zu aller Zeit.
    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    dein Kleid will mich was lehren.

    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    dein Kleid will mich was lehren:
    die Hoffnung und Beständigkeit
    gibt Trost und Kraft zu aller Zeit.
    O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
    dein Kleid will mich was lehren.
