From the album Christmas: The Story of Stories.

Written by Carolyn Arends.

Don’t be misled by these dusty old baubles
These are the treasures of Christmases past
And don’t be dismayed if the family squabbles
We’ll still pass the turkey, we’ll still raise a glass

I know for sure it will not be perfect
There will be moments we’re undone
But friends, that’s the reason we need this season
To help us remember, joy can still come
To a world often troubled and tragic …
So bring on the old Christmas magic

Don’t be ashamed to hang dollar store tinsel
There is great worth in reflecting the light
Don’t you agree we could all use some twinkle?
Now is the time to be merry and bright

Everything’s better when we come together
So let’s make sure mistletoe is hung
Cause friends the whole reason we need this season
Is to help us remember, joy can still come
To a world often troubled and tragic …
So bring on the old Christmas magic

Please don’t give up on the ancient traditions
They’ll come to life if you just let them in
And don’t be afraid to give your heart permission
To open up wide and let Christmas begin

Come all ye faithful, there’s room at the table
And there is a gift for everyone
Cause friends the whole reason we need this season
Is to help us remember, joy can still come
To a world often troubled and tragic …
So bring on the old Christmas magic
