Lyrics of “Christmas Feeling”…golden wishes for you and yours…Merry Christmas!

I love that Christmas feeling
It does my heart so much good
Strangers I meet all seem like friends
And the world’s just a neighborhood

So here’s to the joy of Christmas
Here’s to the ones I hold dear
May you have that Merry Christmas feeling
All through a happy New Year

“One quart cream, one quart milk, one dozen tablespoons sugar, one pint brandy, ½ pint rye whiskey, ½ pint Jamaica rum, ¼ pint sherry—mix liquor first, then separate yolks and whites of 12 eggs, add sugar to beaten yolks, mix well. Add milk and cream, slowly beating. Beat whites of eggs until stiff and fold slowly into mixture. Let set in cool place for several days. Taste frequently.”
