Happy Day After Christmas

I heard this song for the first time today.  I’ve been feeling a little down because the “Christmas Season” is over and the Christmas music station on the radio is playing pop again.  (Although, I’m still not ready to give up my Pandora Christmas station)  So, this song is a wonderful reminder that Joy is still found, even after the thrill of the season is past.  Actually, the real thrill of Christmas never passes.

Happy Day After Christmas!

“Day After Christmas”

Here comes the letdown, Christmas is over
Here comes the meltdown, there goes the cheer
But before we have a breakdown, let us remember
The light of the world is still here

Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
The light of the world

Come January, I’m ready for summer
The Super Bowl’s over and I’ll settle for spring
Sometimes we all need a change in the weather
But it won’t change the reason we sing

Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
He’s the light of the world
The light of the world
The light of the world

So take down the stockings, take back the sweaters
Take down the lights and the star and the tree
But don’t let this world take your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world and just sing

Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
