Christmas Is Coming

“Christmas Is Coming” is a well known traditional carol talking about the meaning and symbol of Christmas: a time of celebration and goodness.

We don’t know the exact origins of the Christmas Is Coming poem. The musical sheet belongs to the writer Edith Nesbit (Bland) (1858-1924), the author of some popular children’s literature.

It became popular in the 1960s when The Kingston Trio band included it on their album “The Last Month of the Year” titled “A Round About Christmas”.

Over the years “Christmas Is Coming” has become one the most popular rounds and Christmas songs for children, both in the USA and the UK.

“Christmas Is Coming” Lyrics

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Please to put a penny in the old man’s hat;
If you haven’t got a penny, a ha’penny will do,
If you haven’t got a ha’penny then God bless you!
