This Time Of Year

An all-inclusive song for your Festive Season.
Family and friends are at the heart of our celebrations. Different cultures have different traditions, but we all have times we love to share - Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali, Eid al-Fitr, New Year and many more.

Discuss and explore with children:
  • Family heritage and customs
  • Traditions and festivals of other cultures
  • Your family tree
  • Relationships e.g. cousins, second cousins, grandparents.

A fun, 1960s style pop song with handclaps.
Unison. For ages 5-13 years.
This Time Of Year - celebrating families, friends and the Festive Season
…thank you for your new song, ”This Time Of Year!” It is just fantastic! I’ve downloaded it and am excited to introduce it to my choir for this holiday season. I love how inclusive it is for children of all faiths and backgounds.

This Time Of Year
Words and music by Glyn Lehmann

We all love this time of year
With our friends and family gathered near
Generations of relations
Old and young and big and small
Come together at this time of year
At this time of year

Verse 1
Families come in different sizes
Families are full of surprises
Some are small and some are quiet
Some are big and cause a riot!
Through the years we see the changes
Babies grow into teenagers

repeat CHORUS

Verse 2
Families are like jigsaw pieces
Uncles, aunties, nephews, nieces
Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers
Sons and daughters, many others
Cousins, first and once removed
Grandmas, grandpas, great ones too

repeat CHORUS

Different cultures and traditions
Different customs and religions
With your friends and your relations
Come and join our celebration!

repeat CHORUS
