Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone! This is Ilwaco’s crab pot Christmas tree.

Image

ImageAnd Santa’s first port of call. This tree even has its own Christmas carol, sung to the tune of “Jingle Bells”:

Crab Pot Tree

 

Coming into Port, with crab for everyone,

Just like tater chips, you can’t eat just one.

 

Here comes Southern Cross, and then

Crystal Marie

Their boats filled with crab, just for you

and me.

 

Soon we’ll all sit down

and have some Dungeness.

Come on in and cook some crab,

we’ll make a great big mess.

 

Oh, crab pot tree, crab pot tree

Made of steel and wire

Put another crab pot on,

Let’s make the tree go higher,

Crab pot tree, crab pot tree

With your buoys and lights,

Let’s cook up some crab and

have a Dungeness tonight.

 

Twenty feet of love, fellowship, and pride

Made of old crab pots,

floats, and lots of lights.

 

It’s Ilwaco’s tree, our crab pot

Christmas tree

Lit up oh so bright, a spectacle to see.

 

Shining towards the town

and also out to sea,

Bring our Crabbers safe to port

with lots of crab to eat.

 

Oh crab pot tree, crab pot tree

Made of steel and wire,

Put another crab pot on,

Let’s make this tree go higher,

Crab pot tree, crab pot tree

With your buoys and lights,

Let’s cook up some crab and

have a Dungeness tonight.

 

Lyrics by Clint Carter

Wishing everyone a peaceful, joyous Christmas filled with lots of love and good food.

    A crab pot tree is new to me, but would be perfect in Cedar Key. Lovely photo! Hope your Christmas is filled with good things and lots of love!

    Nice night photos! I love the tree, but I don’t think I will learn the lyrics. Fun to read at least once, though. Are we goofy here at the end of the world, or what? I love it!
