Imagine if a newborn could speak…what would she/he want for Christmas?

Imagine if a newborn could speak…what would she want for Christmas?

What could we give our children that will last forever?

what will children ask for christmas

I stumbled upon this song on spotify and played it as I was relaxing in my bedroom with my husband. This new song was beautifully sung in A cappella and caught my husband’s attention . The Christmas song is superb! Upon checking the title , “The World for Christmas” by the Real Group, I felt so inspired to share it here. The song is just so beautiful. Oh I forgot I said that already.  How come I never heard of this group? I got more curious. In Wikipedia, it says that ” The Real Group was formed in 1984, when its original members were students at the Swedish Royal College of Music. All had previously attended Adolf Fredrik’s Music School (Swedish: Adolf Fredriks Musikklasser), a school in Stockholm known for its song and choral curriculum…They are a  professional a cappella group from Sweden, consisting of five members: Emma Nilsdotter, Katarina Henryson, Anders Edenroth, Morten Vinther Sørensen, and Anders Jalkéus.”

Listen to the music in this video:

Read the lyrics and be touched. Hear the unspoken wish from a tiny tiny tot

It’s the night before Christmas and all through the house
not a creature is stirring not even a mouse
the stockings are hung by the chimney with care
but hopes for saint Nicholas I wish I could share
I am new to this world I arrived here this morn
to this beautiful planet though beat up and torn
I don’t need a gift need no more than I’ve got
hear the unspoken wish from a tiny tiny tot
I only want the world for Christmas
the blue green for ever turning world for Christmas
nothing more nothing less I want it for keeps and I promise to share
so that everyone who wants can cuddle and care
I only want the world for Christmas
the blue green for ever turning world for christmas
to restore to repossess
please make it last my fate is in your hands
oh give me a present for the future
you could follow your heart but you follow a whim
and fill up your stockings way over the brim
ignoring the signs on a frail crystal ball
you wish away wish away wish away all
the moon on the breast of the new fallen snow
gives a luster of mid day to objects below
why your eyes wont see
when they’ve given all this light
I wonder I wonder
this very special night
I only want the world for Christmas
the blue green for ever turning world for Christmas
to restore to repossess
please make it last my fate is in your hands
oh give me oh give me oh give me oh give me oh give me
a present for the future
do do do do do do do do do do do do

the world for christmas

The Real Group Christmas song “The World For Christmas” is a reminder to care better for our planet so that our children can inherit in all its beauty and splendor.
