Christmas Island

from w
I've been browsing the net for songs and pictures that can be used for a Carols around the World evening service I've been asked to plan. I found one song that gave me a start. Of course the author wasn't thinking of the Christmas Island that we know today, but I changed two or three words to make it relevant. In case you don't know, Christmas Island is part of Australia but it's become one huge detention centre (going to be doubled in size they say) for people seeking asylum who've been picked up from their leaky boats.


Christmas Island
By: Lyle Moraine (1946)
Let's get away from sleigh bells, let's get away from snow,
Let's make a break some Christmas dear, I know the place to go.
How'd ja like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd ja like to spend the Holiday away across the sea?
How'd ja like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How'd ja like to hang your stockin' on a great big coconut tree?

How'd ja like to stay up late like the detainees do,
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe?
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island,
You will never stray, for ev'ry day you will ask
can your Christmas dreams come true?

Hello everyone am here to testify how i got my loan from Dr Purva Pius. after i applied several times from various loan lenders who claimed to also testify right in this forum,i thought the testimonies where real and i applied but they never gave me loan. I was in need of an urgent loan to start a business and i applied from various loan lenders who promised to help but they never gave me the loan.Until a friend of mine introduce me to Dr Purva Pius. who promised to help me and indeed he did as he promised without any form of delay.I never thought there are still reliable loan lenders until i met Dr Purva Pius,who are indeed helped with the loan and changed my belief.I don't know if you are in any way in need of a genuine and urgent loan,free feel to contact Dr Purva Pius via his email(urgentloan22@gmail.com) Thank you may God bless you.
