Nine Cub Scouts come onstage, one by one; each carrying a large cardboard
letter. As he speaks his lines, he holds up his letter, which
ultimately spells out the word Christmas.
C - C
is for candles, we burn of Christmas night
To gladden weary travelers with their light so bright.
H is for happiest; the happiest time of year;
It’s jolly, gay old Christmas time, with all its mirth and cheer.
- R is for ring; we ring the Christmas bell
All the Christmas gladness, the world to tell.
- I is for the jnfant who lay in a manger
Little Lord Jesus, a dear little stranger.
S is for shepherds who kept their flocks by night;
And heard the angels singing, and saw a wondrous light.
T - T
is for tree, all green and gold and red,
We see it Christmas morning when we jump out of bed.
M is for the mistletoe we hang at Christmas time;
In merry wreaths, when candles burn and Christmas bells chime.
A - A
is for all; to all men we wish cheer,
Joy and gladness, love and hope, for Christmas time is here.
S - S is for the star that shone on Christmas night,
Star and candle, bell and wreath, all make our Christmas bright.
