Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
T'is the season to be jolly!
To everything there is a season
And for all good things there is a reason.
As we pause in the deep silence of winter,
We honor the humble bee,
Ever selfless and devoted to her tribe.
‘Busy as a bee’ is true because all bees are always busy.
The bee is a splendid creature that pollinates the flowers on
Fruit and vegetable plants and trees,
Providing us with many of our favorite foods.
And honey to sweeten these edible treats
And wax to make candles for light in the dark of night.
We are blessed to see the beauty of how bees interact
In their crowded beehives,
Always in service to the One Hive,
With grace, poise, precision, and dedication.
We honor too all solitary bees.
Our hearts are filled with gratitude,
As we celebrate our sacred holidays with treasures from the bees.
Dear Bee, what can we do in return for thee?
Let us commit in some small way to serve you too in 2022.
We thank our dear blog readers for reading and sharing our posts, and BEE-ing in the spirit of bee love.
Happy Holidays and May Your Season Bee Merry!
