Stay Home for the Holidays

With the pandemic resurging across the states, I’m not terribly surprised that when I set out to come up with a holiday jingle that this came out.

It’s rough. Nothing was written when I started playing … and this is the PSA I created. Maybe it’ll make it into this year’s holiday “album” I’m working on as a way to find sanity as 2020 comes to a close. (Photo from a 2013 Epiphany party when we could gather in groups, indoors, w/out masks.)

Rough Cut Lyrics:
Staying home for the holidays
Let’s stay home for the holidays

Sure, I’ll miss my family, and I’ll miss my friends
But they’ll still be alive when the days subside

Cuz we’re staying home for the holidays
We’re staying home for the holiday

I’ll still bake my bread and play plenty of games
Call you on the telephone

We’re staying home for the holidays
Let’s stay home for the holidays

So grateful for being alive and having a home to spend the days
We have our homes to spend our days

Even though I’m here and you’re there I still love you the same,
I’ll love you even more when I can see you again

Cuz we’re staying home for the holidays
Please stay home for the holidays
