repeat the sounding joy

As Paul likes to remind me, Christmas day is just the beginning of the twelve days of Christmas.  That would make today the second day of Christmas and would mean that Paul owes me a couple of turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree.

Celebrating the spirit of Christmas beyond the actual day of Christmas reminds me of my favorite Christmas song lyrics: repeat the sounding joy.  Hope your Boxing Day is filled with repeating joy!
Joy to the world, the Lord is come!Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing!

Let us their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy!
