Summary: One last Yuletide carol to see the Season out and the New Year in...and my wishes for all of you, my hobbity friends, for the coming year!
"COME NOW, GOOD HOBBITS..."
Come now, good hobbits, be of much cheer,
And let's raise a toast to the coming New Year~
May each day dawn bright and fair,
Free from want and free from care!
May the year be short on sorrow,
And long on joy with each new morrow!
May the Shire know peace and plenty,
That no larder may go empty!
And blessed be the earth we till,
That each belly may have its fill!
May the ties of family, too,
Be strengthened by hearts warm and true!
May each hobbit have a hand to hold,
And love for all, both young and old!
Let the halls with laughter ring,
As to the New Year we gladly sing!
Here are a couple of other Yule carols from the past:
