Although we are familiar with these verses as a Christmas song, it was originally written as a Thanksgiving poem. It appeared for the first time in 1844, in a volume of the author's poems.
~~~~~~~~~

A BOY'S THANKSGIVING DAY

Over the river, and through the wood,
To Grandfather's house we go;
the horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
through the white and drifted snow.
Over the river, and through the wood,
to Grandfather's house away!
We would not stop for doll or top,
for 'tis Thanksgiving Day.
Over the river, and through the woodó
oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose
as over the ground we go.
Over the river, and through the woodó
and straight through the barnyard gate,
We seem to go extremely slow,
it is so hard to wait!
Over the river, and through the woodó
When Grandmother sees us come,
She will say, "O, dear, the children are here,
bring a pie for everyone."
Over the river, and through the woodó
now Grandmother's cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Hi Seriously, Dickens, Pepper and anyone I missed. We had a big lunch, everything was perfect and everybody had a good time. Then we put up the Christmas tree, now my son has some friends over and we are watching t.v.

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday and time with their families.

Good morning, Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Are you still as stuffed as I am? I always love the day after too...I have all these delicious left-overs to heat and eat. There won't be any cooking for me today...wheee! I'm going to start my Christmas decorating. I'd like to have the tree up by nighttime but I'm going to take my time, work slowly, and just enjoy this lovely day.

Have a happy day, Everyone!

And good afternoon to you, Wabbit! I love Christmas! I just couldn't wait to put on my Santa Hat!

I've started my Christmas decorating today. I like to get it up as soon after Thanksgiving as possible. I read where Dixie and her family put their tree up yesterday after their dinner. I know she enjoyed its sparkle last night. I hope to have mine up by tonight. Christmas is so very special and beautiful, I like to stretch it out and enjoy every second of it.

I had warmed up dressing for lunch. That's all....just a generous serving with a dab of cranberry sauce....and oh, yum! I'm energized now!

Enjoy the afternoon, Wabbit! You too, Seriously! And Pepper and Dixie and Jem and Everyone!

Hi Wabbit and Dickens! What a coincidence, I had leftovers for lunch too. I had dressing and sweet potatoes. Yes, I am enjoying my tree. It doesn't have a theme and it isn't trendy, but it holds memories and pictures and lots of color. I strung popcorn yesterday and it has alternating popcorn and red bead garland. My tree skirt was quilted by my grandmother and has little squares of Christmas fabric. It wouldn't suit everyone, but it suits me and makes me smile.

Good morning, Everyone! I hope you're all staying warm on this very chilly morning.

I want to send out HAPPY BIRTHDAY greetings to a dear old friend, the lovely poster known as Smiles, who once used to post with us regularly here. As a matter of fact, she was one of the original little band that welcomed me to Topix. I understand that Real Life, work and family and children, can keep us very busy, but it is always my hope that Smiles will eventually come post with us again.

~~~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SMILES!~~~

Ta Da! My Christmas Tree is up and shining and looking so pretty! As soon as I round up all of the ornament boxes and stash them away in the closet, my living room will be neat and tidy and full of Christmas Beauty.

Seriously, I had left-overs again for lunch and they were still just as delicious. I thought for supper I'd make myself something simple like a cheese toast but I don't know....I hear that dressing calling my name again. I may go ahead and finish it off tonight. I hope you get your phone fixed very fast. We will miss you until you're back posting with us again.

I hope you and Wabbit are enjoying a relaxing weekend. We cooks need a couple of days to rest up after a big holiday meal, don't we!

:)

Hi Pepper. Have you decorated for Christmas yet? I'm so glad to have my Christmas Tree up. I'll enjoy it so much at night while I watch Christmas movies or play on Topix.

So New Lenox is hopping tonight? I'll check it out too.....
