Alternative Christmas Carol Lyrics, 2010. (Buns and Roses)

For the past 3 years, I have been running a Festive Choir for Buns and Roses WI.

The second year I did this (2010), I decided to follow up on my previous year’s tradition of re-writing Christmas lyrics with something based on all the meetings and workshops we had had in the WI that year.
