A MERRY Christmas to you,
and a good year;
Luck and health to the whole house;
Life, joy, and sprightliness to every one2.
Peace and love between men and women;
Goods and riches, stock and store.
Lots of potatoes, herring enough ;
Bread and cheese, and butter and beef.
Death like a mouse in a barn haggart3;
Sleeping safely when you are in bed,
Undisturbed4 by the flea's tooth, sleeping
