Many schools and childcare centers have adopted a no-holiday celebration policy, and the result is that many are devoid of the usual sparkle and color thatís so welcome at this time of year. In response to that, use this song to celebrate and bring back some of those colors, but in a different way. Instructions are given for ASL Signs for the colors, and alternate lyrics using traditional holidays are given below. An instrumental version of the song is provided, so you can sing your own holiday, or just keep it a winter song.

Suggestion: Have squares of paper or felt in the colors mentioned in the song. Go through them and demonstrate the signs before singing the song. Then sign the colors and other included words as you sing. To learn additional signs for the optional lyrics, visit the ASL sites on our LINKS page

Another variation: Add your own lyrics for other seasons, and use the colors. Sing to the instrumental version!

The Colors of Winter
(signed words are in bold)

My winter coat is blue, my winter scarf is red
My winter hat is green and itís warm upon my head

CHORUS:
Oh the colors of winter are beautiful to see
Oh the colors of winter are all around me

The winter trees are green, the winter snow is white
The winter moon is yellow and it shines throughout the night

Our winter lights are red, our winter lights are blue
Our winter lights are orange, they're pink and purple too




The Colors of Christmas


The Christmas tree is green, the Christmas snow is white
The Christmas Star is yellow and it shines throughout the night

Oh the colors of Christmas are beautiful to see
Oh the colors of Christmas are all around me

Our Christmas lights are red, our Christmas lights are blue
Our Christmas lights are orange, they're pink and purple too


The Colors of Hanukkah

Our menorah is gold, it holds the candles white
Their yellow flame help to tell the story of the light

Oh the colors of Hanukkah are beautiful to see
Oh the colors of Hanukkah are all around me

My dreidel is red, my dreidel is blue
My dreidel is yellow, green and purple too

(repeat First verse, or add your own for the third)

CHORUS:
Oh the colors of Hanukkah are beautiful to see
Oh the colors of Hanukkah are all around me
