'Our need for presents is really dire/ Oops I set myself on fire'

I like to remind my family every once in a while why they don't like to take me to church. It's because I am too endowed with the Spirit of Christmas! That is, of course, if the True Meaning of Christmas is to sing all of the foreign-language lyrics to the carols instead of the ones everyone else is singing.

Six verses of O Come All Ye Faithful? I'll just sing Adeste Fidelis six times! And Stille Nacht and Sainte Nuit instead of Silent Night!

Unfortunately, I didn't have with me the alternate lyrics to the Advent Song that Alfie and I invented years ago...

Verse #3:
Light the advent candle three,
But keep the flame away from me
Christmas socks upon our feet
Eighteen fruitcakes left to eat

Ah, family tradition.
