*** Merry Christmas ***

It's Christmas Time Again
(by Bob Lazzar-Atwood)

Put your problems on probation
Run your troubles off the track,
Throw your worries out the window
Get the monkeys off your back.
Silence all your inner critics
With your conscience make amends,
And allow yourself some happiness
It's Christmas time again!

Call a truce with those who bother you
Let all the fighting cease,
Give your differences a breather
And declare a time of peace,
Don't let angry feelings taint
The precious time you have to spend,
And allow yourself some happiness
It's Christmas time again!

Like some cool refreshing water
Or a gentle summer breeze,
Like a fresh bouquet of flowers
Or the smell of autumn leaves,
It's a banquet for the spirit
Filled with family, food and friends,
So allow yourself some happiness
It's Christmas time again!



Merry Christmas, Frohe Weihnachten, Joyeux Noël, Buon Natale, Boas Festas, Sretam Bozic, Pozdrevlyayu s prazdnikom Rozhdestva, God Jul, Wesolych Swiat, Feliz Navidad, Kala Christougenna, Zalig Kerstfeest, Shinnen omedeto, Vrolijk Kerstfeest, Shubh Naya Baras

to everyone on MTF who is going to celebrate Christmas Have a great time

Merry Christmas everyone!

I noticed the Catalan language isn't represented in your post, which is a shame since it's clearly the most fit for these forums:

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Great lyrics, but what's the tune? It's almost "Deck the Halls" but not quite

I think it's just a poem and not from a song I found it on a Christmas poem page.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone! Enjoy your time with family and friends.

Fair enough, I'm changing the last 2 lines of each verse slightly and singing it to "deutschland uber alles"

Nice find!
