Deck the Peak With…

Santa’s coming!

As Becca mentioned in yesterday’s Observer Comment, I usually do a yearly ‘summitized’ parody of a Christmas song or story. In 2007, it was a parody on the poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’. In 2008, it was a parody on ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ called ‘The 12 Days of Summit Christmas’ fittingly. In2009, it was a twist on ‘Jingle Bells’ called ‘Summit Weeks’. In 2010, it was a twist on ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ called ‘Marty the Black-Haired Maine Coon’. And last year , it was a parody on ‘O Tannenbaum/O Christmas Tree’ called ‘O Christmas Cairn’.

For this year, I went with a ‘summitized’ parody for ‘Deck The Halls’ that I called ‘Deck the Peak’. Hopefully you have as much fun singing along to it as I had writing (and singing along to) it. And before I go, from our crew/summit family, we would like to wish you and your family a MERRY CHRISTMAS and JOYFUL HOLIDAYS!

Deck the Peak

Deck the peak with snow, ice and rime
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Winter’s here, and it’s about time
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Wearing all our EMS gear
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Cold and snow are nothing to fear
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Aurora dancing to our north
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Colorful lights that they put forth
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

The fallen snow that we just measured
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
For winter sports, it should be treasured
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Another year is in the past
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
With a new year coming up fast
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Singing praise to you, our member
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Thanks! Now, to observe our weather…
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
