Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

  • what does be in practices(in bold) mean in this context and what kind of sentence is this?(gramatically)
    there is no one in our society who is not ethnocentric to some degree , no matter how liberal and open-minded he or she might claim to be. people will always find some aspect of another culture distasteful,be it practices ,a way of treating or relatives, or simply a food that they cannot manage to get down with a smile. :o

    As for practices - it simply means some aspects of customs / traditions in a country. Don't confuse it with the verb "to practise".

    I would question this:
    -" a way of treating or relatives,"
    ... it makes no sense.
