From the recording All Hearts Come Home for Christmas
I Wish Tonight (Trish Torline)
To wish upon a star often refers to making a wish after seeing the first star in the sky at night. You simply close your eyes before wishing. Then say, “Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight: I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight.” This old nursery rhyme is rumored to make your wish come true. If it is supposed to work with the first star in the sky at night, imagine what wishing on the Christmas Star might bring!
