"The First Christmas" is a song from Cricket on the Hearth. After Caleb lies to his blind daughter, Bertha, about decorations during the holiday season, he tries to imagine a Christmas without these things.

Lyrics

Could it be Christmas
Without the mistletoe?;
Could be Christmas
Without the winter snow?

No fireplace;
No Christmas tree;
No decorations
Just you and me
Would it be Christmas then

On the first Christmas
There was no mistletoe;
On the first Christmas
There was no winter snow

No fireplace;
No Christmas tree;
No decorations
Just the wise man three
And is was Christmas then

The holiday season
has changed,
but the reason we
celebrate remains

It can be Christmas
without the mistletoe;
It can be Christmas
without the winter snow

No fireplace;
No Christmas tree;
No decorations
Just you and me
It can be Christmas then

For Christmas lives in the hearts of men
