THE CEREMONIES FOR CHRISTMAS DAY

Kindle the Christmas brand, and then
   Till sunset let it burn;
Which quench'd, then lay it up again
   Till Christmas next return.


Part must be kept wherewith to teend
   The Christmas log next year,
And where 'tis safely kept, the fiend
   Can do no mischief there.
