Love and Joy Come to You ...

And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you and send you a happy new year,
And God send you a happy new year.

I first heard this song when my children brought it home from school after we'd moved to Kentucky. I think the music teacher had included it in the holiday songs she was teaching her classes. Somehow the meaning of the word "wassail" hadn't stuck with them, and so they would go into fits of giggles as they sang it about their play, sometimes varying it with, "And to you your waffle, too."

Ah, well, that was over 50 years ago.
