Those Gloomy Kinds of Clouds

December 27, 2016

Every year for lotsa years, I’ve written our family Christmas letter as lyrics to a song.

I offer this to you one condition: that you don’t just read it…you gotta sing. You already know the tune, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, so no excuses.

Clear your throat.

Go on, give a good harumph and clear your throat.

And now that you have the attention of the people around you, invite them to join in!

Here we go —


The Scheets Family’s 2016 Christmas Song

to be sung to the tune of It Came Upon a Midnight Clear


Yes, it’s that time of year again, to write our Christmas song

And tell you all about the year, what’s good, what’s made us strong

And so without further a-do, please sing these words out loud

And banish with your cheerful voice, those gloomy kinds of clouds.

— The next verse is about Patty.  See you back here tomorrow!
