The music to Christmas is Coming was composed by Edith Nesbit Bland in the late nineteenth century. The author of the lyrics is unknown but the popularity of this traditional Christmas song is handed down from generation to generation in the form of a nursery rhyme. The words of Christmas is coming reflects the Christmas festival of celebration of being a time of plenty but that charity should be given to the less fortunate according to the giver’s means!
Christmas is coming. My family and I will be enjoying more than our “fair” share of fine food and drink in the next few weeks. We are blessed. I’ll be stopping in at the Piglet* today to pick up some things for others who are less fortunate. I’ll drop them off at the county extension office.
We call our local Piggly Wiggly the “Piglet.” Some of the fellows who take our groceries out to the truck will say say good bye by saying, “Have a blessed day.” Christine at the Dollar General says the same.
