Wednesday Words: Holiday

April 24, 2013 in Blog Hops / Memes / Linkies, Holidays, Poetry, Travel, Uncategorized, Wednesday Words by Emma Day


I am currently on a MUCH-NEEDED holiday!

I'm in Devon with my beautiful family. We are only here for 5 days, but it means so much to us. It is also the twins first ever holiday.

So I wanted to find something for #WednesdayWords which had a holiday theme, but also that showed the hardships we've been facing and why this mini-break is so important to us right now.

With the exception of the seasonality, I found that Leann Rimes Lyrics to "Holiday in your Heart" were perfect.

 

Feel the cold wind blowing winter's coming on
'Tis the season, so they say
If you need help believing 'cause your spirit ain't too strong
Hold my hand, we'll push that cloud away

 

And put a little holiday in your heart
It'll put a little shuffle in your step
Give you a song that you can sing
With a melody you can't forget

 

And if you wanna join in a little harmony
To keep the world from tearin' apart
Well, you know where to look
Yeah, you gotta put a little holiday in your heart

 

There's a man on the corner who doesn't have a name
People pass and turn their heads away
But to share a simple kindness would set there heart aflame
And you'll get more than you'll ever give away

 

So, put a little holiday in your heart
It'll put a little shuffle in your step
Give you a song that you can sing
With a melody you can't forget

 

And if you wanna join in a little harmony
To keep the world from tearin' apart
Well, you know where to look
Yeah, you gotta put a little holiday in your heart

 

It starts with you, it starts with me
That ain't no stranger, he's family
And it don't matter if we agree
It all comes down to love

 

So, put a little holiday in your heart
It'll put a little shuffle in your step
Give you a song that you can sing
With a melody you can't forget

 

And if you wanna join in a little harmony
To keep the world from tearin' apart
Well, you know where to look
Yeah, you gotta put a little holiday in your heart

 

So, put a little holiday in your heart
It'll put a little shuffle in your step
Give you a song that you can sing
With a melody you can't forget

 

And if you wanna join in a little harmony
To keep the world from tearin' apart
Well, you know where to look
Yeah, you gotta put a little holiday in your heart

 

Well, you know where to look
Yeah, you gotta put a little holiday in your heart
