from my days in the trenches of doing school assemblies and family concerts I needed a "non religious" holiday singalong song that would work for kids as well as their parents and adult caregivers, teachers and school administrators...


Season Of Light
Song #292 | 12/9/1997 | This version released 12/12/2019

May you be slow to anger, quick to forgive
May you have many, many reasons to live
May you be able to laugh at yourself
May you have friends who are willing to help!
In the season of light

May your Uncle Charlie finally give up cigars
May never get caught with your hand stuck in the cookie jar
May you be who you’ve always longed to be
May you receive something absolutely free
In the Season of Light…

Season of Light
Season of Light
Season of Light
Season of Light

May you get to sleep late once in a while
May the clerk at the DMV greet you with a smile!
May you never have to stand on line
May the patrol man give just a “warning” this time
In the Season of Light

May your fourth grade teacher always know your name
But not because you were always a pain!
May you never catch another cold
May you be young at heart when you are old
In the Season of Light


May your plane or train or bus run right on time
Unless of course you are running behind!
May the UPS truck bring stuff for you
May you never have to learn to sing the “blues”
In the Season of Light

May you be just a little bit kinder to yourself
May you experience abundance and health
May you be true to who you really are
May you look up and see a shooting star
In the Season of Light!

Welcome to my “Life In Song” project.

Since 1976, I’ve been obsessively and compulsively writing songs. Some of them are inspired by my own life, my attempts to understand love, life, spirituality, peace and justice.

While I recently have started to get a little recognition, you’ve probably never heard my songs ANYWHERE.

But now you can hear them... here... Download. Share. Thanks!
