Christmas Songs and Thoughts and Cross Fountain PensChristmas carols are already in the air and the anticipation for the holidays has begun. Time to think of gifts before the mob crowds the malls. Come Christmas, let kind thoughts flow like rivers from Cross fountain pens.
Each Man to His Song
The visions of chestnuts roasting in the fire and families gathering at the hearth to sing along to Christmas songs ? each man to his favorite Christmas song ? are beloved memories especially with the kids grown and have flown the coop.
These are the victuals of personal journals written with Cross fountain pens. Each story flows like streams, gentle and poignant at times. Sometimes with a feeling of regret and loss and lonely yearnings echoed in these lines sung by Bing Crosby:
You''re all I want for Christmas
All I want my whole life through
Each day is just like Christmas
Anytime that I''m with you
As generations change, the thoughts change too. Note this Christmas song of Kenny Chesney:
All I want for Christmas is a real good tan
Take me to the Islands put my feet in the sand
Rockin'' to and fro to the rhythm of the ocean
Singing Silent Night with the palm trees blowin''. . .
The Classical Christmas Music
Jingle Bells or One Horse Open Sleigh, was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822-1893) and gained instant popularity. Other classic songs are the First Noel, Adeste Fideles, Deck the Walls with Boughs of Holly, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, and All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth ? are some samples of the best loved Christmas songs.
New Christmas songs will come out of the woodwork but the classics will endure ? like the all time favorite Christmas gifts of Cross fountain pens, money clips, dolls, wallets, and toy trains.
Adding a Special Touch to your Gifts
Why not attach a letter to your engraved grandfather clock (for your wife) money clips or Cross fountain pens for your boss and friends in the workplace? It will make your recipients feel extra special. This gesture will earn you their appreciation.
Children aged 7 and up can already appreciate short notes attached to their gifts from uncles and aunties and gift giving becomes personal not automated.
Write Those Christmas Thoughts
One meaningful Christmas ritual is writing your Christmas journal. If you have the patience for this, you''ll be amazed at the transitions of your Christmases through the years ? the anecdotes, the fun, frenzied cooking, filling up those stockings hung by the fireplace, and the opening of Santa''s gifts - all written with your collection of Cross fountain pens.
You can even invite your grown-up kids to read those Christmas journals and reminisce those holidays when they were still creating snowmen with the help of Dad or having ridiculous snowball fights with other kids on the block.
This Christmas, make the season truly special for family and friends. Write them lovely letters give them lasting gifts that will always remind them of Christmases with you. Let your words flow and sparkle, and make more memories with your Cross fountain pens.
