…Ships A' Sailing on Christmas Day

Do you know this Christmas Song? If you don’t know it, it is a jaunty little jig reminiscent of an old sailor’s drinking song (shh…don’t tell anyone…)

Sailing ships song
I was reminded of this song when I visited a good friend’s home last week. She and her husband love to sail and are therefore attracted to all things nautical. My very clever friends used some old rope from their boat to fashion a unique garland for their fireplace. Notice that the red and green create almost a holly effect.

Merry Christmas to all you sailors out there whether on sea or shore this Christmas.


  1. Hi Kitty,
    I would be honored if you would share my Little Fireman. I love that guy, and it was such a special program.

    Have a very wonderous Christmas!
    And loved their rope garland. Great idea for sailors!

  2. Hi Kitt. I saw your post on A Day In The Life and just wanted to stop in and say Merry Christmas. I have you and your son in my prayers tonight. May the peace and love of Christmas fill your home. Hugs...Tracy
