O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas And Happy New Year!
by Ellis Parker Butler

Little cullud Rastus come a-skippin’ down de street,
A-smilin’ and a-grinnin’ at every one he meet;
My, oh! He was happy! Boy, but was he gay!
Wishin’ “Merry Chris’mus” an’ “Happy New-Year’s Day”!
Wishin’ that his wishes might every one come true—
And—bless your dear heart, honey,—I wish the same to you

For: Tell Me Something Good #36, Visiting Bethlehem: Gloria in Excelsis Deo!



  1. Your rhyme is so cheerful and joyfully fun. The tree looks so pretty. We no longer do a cut tree, but I miss having the wonderful fragrance. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you also. 🙂
