· A Special Song for the New Year ·

Today’s Episode is a song - “The Wassailing Song” - to welcome in the new year.

Hello and welcome. I’m so glad you are here. Have you been home for winter break? My whole family is home today, and they are little bit noisy. Of course, they are not as noisy as tiny little Roxie is all by herself because they don’t bark, but you might hear them in the background. They are downstairs right now working on a puzzle and watching a soccer game – if someone scores a goal, oh, we’ll all know about it, dear listener.

Now, today I have an ancient song to sing for you in celebration of the new year and all the good that comes from kindness and wishing your neighbor well. I’m going to sing the Wassailing Song. Do you know it? Did you know that this song, some say, has been sung for over a thousand years? I hope you’ll sing with me.

“The Wassail Song”

Here we come a-wassailing

Among the leaves so green,

Here we come a-wand’ring

So fair to be seen.

Love and joy come to you,

And to you good wassail, too,

And God bless you, and send you

A Happy New Year,

And God send you a Happy New Year.

 

We are not daily beggers

Who beg from door to door,

But we are neighbors’ children

Whom you have seen before

Love and joy come to you,

And to you good wassail, too,

And God bless you, and send you

A Happy New Year,

And God send you a Happy New Year.

 

God bless the master of this house,

Likewise the mistress too;

And all the little children

who round the table go.

Love and joy come to you,

And to you good wassail, too,

And God bless you, and send you

A Happy New Year,

And God send you a Happy New Year.”

 

Love and joy come to you indeed, my dear listeners.

Spring Sprang Sprong, I hoped you liked my song and that you’ll sing the wassail song to welcome in the new year.

Come back soon and I’ll have more of the fairy story of the Two Sisters and the Wolf. There are going to be GIANTS in the next episode…
