My Favorite Ornaments

(Sung to the tune of "My Favorite Things")
Stuffed bears in stockings and boots made of wax,
Nutcrackers, pickles, and glimmers of pax*,
Santas in lime green, in kilts, and conducting,
These are a few of my favorite things...
Snowglobes with reindeer and trees made of rainbow,
Warm cheerful mittens and a musical angel,
Crosses and trees and nativities,
These are a few of my favorite things...
The White House in gold, teddy bears and toy soldiers,
Elves, popcorn, and Frosty with a scarf on his shoulders,
Big Al and houndstooth to cheer on the Tide,
These are a few of my favorite things...
When the snow falls,
When the lights shine,
When joy fills my heart,
I look at the tree and I see all these things,
And admire these works of art.
*pax is Latin for peace
