about

That feeling of excitement that we got as kids in the run up to Christmas is a special thing, going to meet family,
religious events, cards coming in the mail all building up to the excitement of Christmas Day. With events happening on
zoom and delivery vans dropping by every hour and plenty of various restrictions no matter where you are in the world
this year is different but even in this context I hope you feel the excitement of the days counting down.

lyrics

Getting Close To Christmas

With each flake of snow that melts on my window
We’re getting close to Christmas 12

With each gift wrapped, each lip chapped
We’re getting close to Christmas 11
For every door ajar on the advent calendar
‘ getting close to Christmas 10 (We’re getting close to Christmas)
With all that Fedex, Amazon UPS
We’re getting close to Christmas 9 (We’re getting close to Christmas)


Even though I’ve seen Christmases galore
Somehow I’m more excited than I’ve ever been before

We’re Getting Close To Christmas
We’re Getting Close To Christmas

For each call or zoom, Every festive tune
We’re getting close to Christmas 8 (We’re getting close to Christmas)
Every recipe shared every neighbour who cares
We’re getting close to Christmas 7 (We’re getting close to Christmas)
For all the front liners and all the isolators
We’re getting close to Christmas 6 (We’re getting close to Christmas)

Some of you might think Christmas is a bore but
Somehow I’m more excited than I’ve ever been before

We’re Getting Close To Christmas
We’re Getting Close To Christmas

For each excited child who yearns to run wild
We’re getting close to Christmas 5 (We’re getting close to Christmas)
Though this year was crazy I think that just maybe
We’re getting close to Christmas 4 (We’re getting close to Christmas)

Some of you might think Christmas is a bore but
Somehow I’m more excited than I’ve ever been before

We’re Getting Close To Christmas3
We’re Getting Close To Christmas2
We’re Getting Close To Christmas1
We’re Getting Close To Christmas
