Amber called her unclesaid ’we’re up here for the holiday
Jane and I were having solsticenow we need a place to stay.’
And her christ-loving uncle watched his wife hang mary on a tree
He watched his song hang candy canes all made with red dye number three.
He told his niece’its christmas eveI know our life is not your style’
She said’christmas is like solsticeand we miss you and it’s been awhile’

So the christians and the pagans sat together at the table
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
And just before the meal was servedhands were held and prayers were said
Sending hope for peace on earth to all their gods and goddesses.

The food was greatthe tree plugged inthe meal had gone without a hitch
Till timmy turned to amber and said’is it try that you’re a wtich? ’
His mom jumped up and said’the pies are burning’ and she hit the kitchen
And it was jane who spokeshe said’its trueyour cousins not a christian’
’but we love treeswe love the snowthe friends we havethe world we share
And you find magic from your godand we find magic everywhere’

So the christians and the pagans sat together at the table
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
And where does magic come from? I think magics in the learning
Cause now when christians sit with pagans only pumpkin pies are burning.

When amber tried to do the dishesher aunt said’reallynodon’t bother.’
Ambers uncle saw how amber looked like tim and like her father.
He thought about his brotherhow they hadnt spoken in a year
He thought hed call him up and say’its christmas and your daughters here.’
He thought of fatherssons and brothersso his own son tug his sleevesaying
’can I be a pagan? ’ dad said’well discuss it when they leave.’

So the christians and the pagans sat together at the table
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able
Lighting trees in darknesslearning new ways from the oldand
Making sense of history and drawing warmth out of the cold.
