The Eleventh Day of Christmas

January 16, 2011

A traditional Christmas bell, with snowflakes and beads. The pattern is “Silver Bells” by Amanda Carestio, which features buttons instead of embroidery. I’m not good at picking out buttons, so I did something different.

“Silver Bells” sounds so pretty that I had to look up the song. Unfortunately the lyrics are unremarkable:

Silver bells, silver bells,

It’s Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them sing

Soon it will be Christmas day.

I was hoping for some onomatopoetic play on the “s” sound and short vowels in “silver” and “bells.” “Sing” is nice, but “ring-a-ling” doesn’t cut it for me. Oh well.

And maybe I’ll stuff the next one with little jingly bells.
