Grandma has given is the wonderful ingredients required for some Christmas Goulash... (that's flash fiction with less than 140 characters OR 140 words and bonus word - this week it is GRUMPY). The numbers at the goulash pot have dwindled this year - are there any of you, dear readers, who are inspired to join in???
The carollers stared into the snow with the final note; not one of them felt cold, wet or grumpy, for the Light of Love filled them.
Ding dong merrily on high
(gee that snow is lumpy)
Lift your voices to the sky
(cold feet make me grumpy)
The Saviour in stable now is born
(aargh snow flake in my eye)
Most bless-ed are we all this morn
(it stings and I could cry)
FAALALALALALAAALALALAALLALAL AND SO ON
Beasts now all proclaim His birth
(please let this be the last song)
The Lord is manifest on Earth
(Forgive me, I was wrong…)
FALALALALALALALALLALALLALAL PLUS THE REST
We are all His ble-ess-sed kin
(I forgot why I am here)
To your heart let His love in
(…are we done? Where’s the beer?)
FFALALALALFLALLALALALALLALA LET'S GO….
All jesting aside –
MERRY CHRISTMAS GOULASHERS!!!
