Christmas In Connecticut

RREFRAIN: It's Christmas in Connecticut, from the Berkshires
to the Sound,
And along each winding river, in each and every town.
Candle-lights a'twinkling behind the wavy glass
Of windows in colonial homes, which passersby drive
On their way to a country lane, where houses light their
And people come to gape and gaze from near and far away.
Carollers go door-to-door, bringing Christmas cheer;
Good-will and Peace to all the Earth, for merry folks
Even going out for groceries is pleasanter as well,
Because of people in the cold, reminding us with bells.
On Constitution Plaza, "The Festival Of Lights",
Is an awesome winter wonderland on the chilliest of
And driving I-691, alone and after dark,
The joy from snowflakes in the trees flows out of Hubbard
Some folks go to Bethlehem to stamp their Christmas
And others visit Mystic, with its spars and masts and
Some hop aboard with old St. Nick when he rides the
Or march along by torchlight with fifes and drums on
Towns and cities, large and small, light their Christmas
And the hearty souls brave wind and cold for living
At sites throughout the Nutmeg State, dazzling displays
Await the throngs that venture out right up through
3 Kings Day.
