By Regan Barnes, who is not a rapper, but her son said this is a pretty good rap!
January is known for being grey, cold, and miserable, but it is a magical month for me for a couple reasons: my birthday falls in January AND there are after-Christmas clearance sales! I don't shop for fun, as a rule, but shopping for deals and for birthdays is something I allow myself to enjoy! A couple of years ago during a January antidepressant spree, I saw Christmas wrapping for 25 cents a roll -- and this was the high-quality, double-sided stuff! I decided to buy an excessive amount and use it as neighbor gifts the following Christmas season. I wrote up the following Christmas Wrap Rap to go along with it. And as I delivered the wrapping paper, I even performed the rap on a few occasions!
Here's some wrap for you
Since you'll be wrappin' lots of gifts --
And a Christmas Rap, too... Just give a beat to this:
There's a lot we wanna say about this awesome holiday.
You know the dude in red who says, "Ho, Ho, Ho"
He's as real as fairies, but yo, yo, yo --
The Man we really love lived 2,000 years ago...
His birth was a miracle!
He served his life doin' miracles!
The fact that he died is a miracle too
Because He died for me and He died for you.
Let me use my lyrical skills
To tell you another miracle still:
Three days after the Cross
'Twas the miracle most empirical --
He rose from the grave! It's TRUE!
Yeah, He saves us in TWO ways, yeah, TWO:
He saves us from death, and he saves us from sin!
He gives us peace while we're on earth,
And hope for Heaven.
Now we're lookin' forward to His Second Coming!
We love our Lord and we know you do too.
We're so happy to celebrate His birthday with you!
Have a happy holiday as you give and give and give --
That's one way we honor the Giver of the best gifts.
