Merry Christmas from the New Norfolk News

THE New Norfolk News sends Christmas greetings to all its readers. Your editor has a feeling that 2010 is going to be a landmark year in the history of the Derwent Valley, so rest up over the holiday period and take in plenty of sustenance. Next year is going to be a biggie.

Don’t forget, if you are on your own tomorrow, a free Christmas Day lunch is available in the hall at St Matthew’s Anglican Church in New Norfolk. The fine folk at St Matt’s will make you welcome at noon. There will be a Christmas Eve service at St Matthew’s at 11 tonight and the Christmas Day service will be at 9.30am.

Soon it will be Christmas Day, and your editor is having trouble getting this carol out of his head, so he’s going to share it with you 🙂

City sidewalk, busy sidewalks,
Dressed in holiday style.
In the air there’s
A feeling of Christmas.

Children laughing, people passing,
Meeting smile after smile,
And on every street corner you’ll hear:

Silver bells, silver bells,
It’s Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day.

City street lights,
Even stop lights,
Blink a bright red and green,
As the shoppers rush home
With their treasures.

Hear the snow crunch,
See the kids bunch,
This is Santa’s big scene,
And above all this bustle you’ll hear:

Silver bells, silver bells,
It’s Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day.
