Welcome to the 10th Annual
In Sandwich
There’s nothing like a town that fully embraces what makes the Holiday season special
- a town wide gathering, Community Caroling, Christmas Tree lighting, Holiday Home
Tours, even a Holiday Cookie Stroll. What can be better than all that?
Sandwich is the place to be for Holly Days 2014 and we have a lot of returning family
events as well as a few new ones to kick off this year.
The Shop Small Saturday and town wide Cookie Stroll start it off on
Saturday, November 29th. While it’s nice to think of supporting local businesses on that
Saturday, that is something we need to focus on doing all year long.
Thanks to the Sandwich Public Library and the Glass Town Cultural District,
the Lighting of the Littlest Christmas Tree will take place on
Sunday, November 30 at 5 pm on Shawme Pond.
The Community Carol Sing will take place on Friday, December 5th at 7 pm at the
First Church of Christ and one, as a newcomer, I am looking forward to most.
The Home Tour, thanks to Bev Comeau, is alive and well this year, featuring a number of
great homes to be seen on Sunday, December 7th. On that day also - a first, courtesy of the
Glass Town Cultural District, Cape Cod Chorale’s “Mostly Dickens Carolers” Quartet will
be singing Christmas Carols and entertaining downtown shoppers and business owners
from 1 pm to 4 pm. Talk about promoting shopping locally!
Finally, I want to thank all of the Holly Days volunteers, especially Kirby Holmes of
Eastern Bank and Donna Kutil of Scenic Roots who helped to keep this going
because they knew it was that special.
So plan to join us for some or all of the Holly Days events.
It’s time to be thankful for the year we’ve had, look forward to what next year may bring
and appreciate the friends, family and town that make us who we are.

GIANT
Light Sculptures
Twinkling holiday lights have become a tradition to brighten a New England Winter.
Holly Days in Sandwich, a program of the Sandwich Chamber of Commerce is full of
town wide traditions highlighting our community. And our town is the birthplace and
home of a unique family of GIANT light sculptures that appears for a short time each
year, with an ever growing list of locations to see them.
The first GIANT was born in 1998 and stood alone in what has become GIANT Headquarters - East Sandwich (where most GIANTS live). He is Moto-San the Glassblower
who stands as tall as the Glass Studio building where he is displayed roadside, with
hundreds of lights covering his steel rebar skeleton.
There will be at least 5 new GIANTS this 2014 - 15 season bringing the total to well
over 40 GIANTS displayed for your viewing pleasure here in Sandwich. Some locations* have more than one. Some wear their lights in the same way each year. Others
have variations. But they all share something in common, they are only viewable for a
limited period of time each year, shining brightly in the dark of winter.
*The map in the center of this booklet (pages 18-19) indicates the GIANT locations
in Sandwich confirmed at time of printing. The exclusive, complete “Official Map of
GIANTS” with full titles & locations is available free of charge to customers at The
Bee~Hive Tavern on Route 6A in East Sandwich beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving (while supplies last).

2014 Seahorse Ornament
Seahorses are a truly unique creature, and not just because
of their unusual equine shape. Unlike most other fish, some
species are monogamous and mate for life. Rarer still, they
are among the only animal species on Earth in which the
male bears the unborn young. By choosing the seahorse, we
celebrate what makes Sandwich unique - from its businesses,
homes, and museums to its artists, residents and visitors.
Enjoy Sandwich’s historic charm, unique lodging choices,
restaurants for the romantic - or the family - and great
recreation. Centrally located amid beautiful walking and
biking trails, bird sanctuaries, salt water estuaries, fresh
water ponds, and seashore. Sandwich offers easy access for
the locals to the day-trippers, weekenders, and international
travelers alike.
Sandwich is rich with history and working museums. This is
the town that Glass built - don’t miss out on this one of a kind hand blown glass ornament. Each ornament was blown at the McDermott Glass Studio and each is numbered
and signed by the artist. The Seahorse commemorates the 10th annual Holly Days.
The 2014 Seahorse Ornament is available at:
• Scenic Roots – 349 Route 6A

America the Beautiful
O Beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
O Come, All Ye Faithful
O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him, born the King of angels;
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
Sing, choirs of angels, Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above;
Glory to God, all glory in the highest;
(Refrain)
27
O Christmas Tree
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
With faithful leaves unchanging.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Not only in summer’s heat,
But also winter’s snow and sleet,
O Christmas Tree,
with faithful leaves unchanging.
Joy to the World
Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
and heaven and nature sing, and heaven and nature sing,
and heaven, and heaven and nature sing.
Joy to the earth! the Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ; while fields and floods,
rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
28
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th’ angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem!
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the new-born King!
Christ, by highest heaven adored;
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of the Virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail the incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with man to dwell;
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
(Refrain)
The First Noel
The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;
In fields as they lay, keeping their sheep,
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the east beyond them far,
And to the earth it gave great light,
And so it continued both day and night.
(Refrain)
Oh LittleO littleTown
of Bethlehem
town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by;
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee to-night.
For Christ is born of Mary,
And gathered all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.
O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth!
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth.
God Rest
Ye Merry Gentlemen
God rest ye merry gentlemen,
let nothing you dismay;
Remember Christ our savior was born on Christmas Day,
To save us all from Satan’s power
when we were gone astray.
O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy!
29
Silver Bells
City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing,
Meeting smile after smile
And on ev’ry street corner you’ll hear
Silver bells, silver bells
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day
Strings of street lights, even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green,
As the shoppers rush home with their treasures
Hear the snow crunch,
See the kids bunch
This is Santa’s big scene, and above all this bustle you’ll hear:
(Refrain)
Deck the Halls
Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
‘Tis the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Don we now our gay apparel,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
See the blazing Yule before us,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Strike the harp and join the chorus.
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Follow me in merry measure,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
While I tell of Yuletide treasure.
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Jingle Bells
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh
Over the fields we go, laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring, making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight
Oh - (Refrain)
A day or two ago, I thought I’d take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright, was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank, misfortune seemed his lot;
He got into a drifted bank and we got upsot.
Oh - (Refrain)
30
White Christmas
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten, and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow
I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
It came upon the midnight clear,
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold:
“Peace on the earth, good will to men,
From heaven’s all-gracious King.”
The world in solemn stillness lay,
To hear the angels sing.
Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world;
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing,
And ever o’er its Babel-sounds
The blessed angels sing.
Away in a Manger
Away in a manger, no crib for his bed,
the little Lord Jesus laid down his
sweet head.
The stars in the bright sky looked
down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
but little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.
I love thee, Lord Jesus! Look down
from the sky,
And stay by my cradle ‘til morning
is nigh.
31
Angels We Have
Heard on High
Angels we have heard on high,
Singing sweetly through the night,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why these songs of happy cheer?
What great brightness did you see?
What glad tiding did you hear?
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Silent Night
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born
Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
32
O Holy Night
O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh hear the angel voices!
O night divine!
The night, when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!
Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer
Rudolf, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.
All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and
call him names.
They never let poor Rudolf
play in any reindeer games.
Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say:
“Rudolf with your nose so bright,
won’t you guide my
sleigh tonight?”
Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee:
“Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!”
Holly Jolly Christmas
Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
It’s the best time of the year
I don’t know if there’ll be snow,
but have a cup of cheer.
Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
And when you walk down the street
Say Hello to friends you know
and everyone you meet.
Oh, ho, the mistletoe
hung where you can see;
Somebody waits for you;
Kiss her once for me.
Have a holly jolly Christmas,
and in case you didn’t hear,
Oh by golly, have a holly,
jolly Christmas this year.
33
Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Oh, You better watch out, You better not cry,
You better not pout, I’m telling you why:
Santa Claus is coming to town!
He’s making a list, He’s checking it twice,
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town!
He see’s you when you’re sleeping,
He knows when you’re awake.
He knows when you’ve been good or bad,
So be good for goodness sake! (Refrain)
Little tin horns, Little toy drums.
Rudy-toot-toot and rummy tum tums.
Santa Claus is coming to town.
Little toy dolls that cuddle and coo,
Elephants, boats and Kiddie cars too.
Santa Claus is coming to town.
The kids in Girl and Boy Land will have a jubilee.
They’re gonna build a toyland town all around the Christmas tree.
(Refrain)
Frosty the Snowman
34
Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose,
And two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the children
know how he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that
Old silk hat they found. For when they placed it on his head,
He began to dance around.
O, Frosty the snowman Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh And play just the same as you and me.
Frosty the snowman knew the sun was hot that day,
So he said, “Let’s run and we’ll have some fun now before I melt away.
” Down to the village, With a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there all around the square saying,
“Catch me if you can!” He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop. And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler “Stop!”
For Frosty the snowman had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
“Don’t you cry, I’ll be back again some day.”
The Christmas Song
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping at your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.
They know that Santa’s on his way;
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother’s child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.
And so I’m offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
Merry Christmas to you!
Here Comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus,
Here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Santa Claus Lane,
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
Pullin’ on the reins.
Bells are ringin’, children singin’,
All is merry and bright.
So hang your stockings and say your prayers,
‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.
Here comes Santa Claus,
Here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Santa Claus Lane,
He’s got a bag that’s filled with toys
For boys and girls again.
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle,
Oh what a beautiful sight,
So jump in bed, and cover your head,
‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.
