Christmas Bridge - Sumner WA

‘I’ll be home for Christmas,

You can Count on me.

Please have snow

and mistletoe and presents on the tree.

Christmas eve will find me where the love light gleams.

I’ll be home for Christmas,

if only in my dreams.’

‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas,’

is one of the most beloved songs sung at this time of year,

written by Kim Gannon and Walter Ken.

First recorded by Bing Crosby on October 4, 1943,

during the height of World War II.

It was released as a single 78 rpm record and soon shot to the top of the charts,

loved by both soldiers overseas

and their families

back home.

This shot of a decorated,

old fashioned steel-truss bridge in the small western Washington town of Sumner,

reminded me of that song,

as families cross it to shop, to celebrate,

to go home for Christmas.

will not be open this week,

as my family and I celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

on Christmas Eve and

Christmas Day.

A Christmas blessing:

May you have…

‘Walls for the wind
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks bedside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire.’

:  :  :

Merry Christmas.
