Christmas cheer

"Then well may we welcome old Christmas to town,
Who brings us good cheer and liquor so brown,
To pass the cold weather away with delight,
We feast it all day and we frolic all night.
Both hunger and cold we keep out with relief --
Plum pudding, goose, capon, minc'd pies and roast beef."

17th century street ballad.
