Manic Monday - carol


Manic Monday is the 'baby' of the awesome Mo (a.k.a. Not The Mama) at It's A Blog Eat Blog World. It's a wonderful and fun way to spend Mondays each week. This week, Mo has chosen carol as the word we work/play with.

The definitions Mo posted on his site for this week`s word are:
1.a song, esp. of joy.
2.a Christmas song or hymn.
3.a seat in a bay window or oriel.
4.a compartment in a cloister, similar to a carrel.
5.a kind of circular dance.
–verb (used without object)
6.to sing Christmas songs or hymns, esp. in a group performing in a public place or going from house to house.
7.to sing, esp. in a lively, joyous manner; warble.
–verb (used with object)
8.to sing joyously.
9.to praise or celebrate in song.

Numbers 2 & 7 are what come first to my mind when I hear the word carol at this time of year, and of course the woman`s name Carol or Carole. However, I like numbers 1, 7, 8, & 9. They showed me that I sing carols 2 or more days a week, all year long. I sing joyous, lively songs at the song rehearsals and at my `Spiritual Centre`each week, as well as at home to practice and sometimes I like to sing happy, peppy songs with the radio. Gee, and I thought carols and caroling were only to do with Christmas songs.

Another `carol` that comes to mind at this time of year, is the story written by

Charles Dickens



Now I leave you with good wishes and a small Christmas carol, from me and my beloved animals:

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;

Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer: Refrain

We won't go until we get some;

We won't go until we get some;

We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here: Refrain

We wish you a Merry Christmas;

We wish you a Merry Christmas;

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
