Here are a few songs, stories, and fingerplays for you to enjoy at home during the library’s winter holidays storytime break.  We hope you have tons of fun with your families over the holidays, and we look forward to seeing you again when storytimes come back the week of January 11th, 2016!

Welcome Christmas!

Fah who for-aze!
Dah who dor-aze!
Welcome Christmas, come this way!

Fah who for-aze!
Dah who dor-aze!
Welcome Christmas, Christmas Day.

Welcome, Welcome, Fah who rah-moose
Welcome, Welcome, Dah who dah-moose

Christmas day is in our grasp
So long as we have hands to clasp.

Fah who for-aze!
Dah who dor-aze!
Welcome Christmas, bring your cheer.

Fah who for-aze!
Dah who dor-aze!
Welcome all Whos far and near

Welcome Christmas, Fah who rah-moose
Welcome Christmas, Dah who dah-moose
Christmas time will always be
Just as long as we have we.

Fah who for-aze!
Dah who dor-aze!
Welcome Christmas, bring your light.

Here Is the Chimney

Here is the chimney (Make a fist with thumb tucked inside)
Here is the top (Place other hand, palm down, on top of fist)
Open the lid (Remove hand)
And OUT Santa will pop! (Have thumb pop up)

Dear Old Santa! (To the tune of “London Bridge”)

Guess whose beard is long and white,
Long and white, long and white?
Guess whose beard is long and white?
Dear old Santa Claus!

Other verses:
Guess who has a jolly laugh, jolly laugh…
Guess whose boots are shiny and black, shiny and black…

The Legend of the Christmas Bell

There is a tiny bell
Heard by those who believe,
That magically jingles every year
On Christmas eve.

So listen for the sound
And know that he is near,
For that Christmas bell is ringing,
“Santa’s coming here!”
