Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

December 17, 2008

We’re having our first  decent snowfall of the year, with more coming Friday, which of course makes the world look a Christmas card. So Christmas approaches, let me offer my happiest holiday wishes, and a new Criminal Christmas carol.

Buy yourself a mystery for Christmas

Death in black and white

From then on,

Your troubles will be out of sight

 

Read yourself a mystery at Christmas

Turn pages every day

From then on

Your troubles will be miles away!

 

Here we are as in olden days

Happy golden days of gore

Faithful sleuths who are dear to us

Solving crimes for us once more

 

Through the years

We’ll be reading them together

If publishers allow

From Sayers to Sherlock’s last bow!

And treat yourself to mystery at Christmas now!
