I love Christmas! I love ALL the carols, really! We wail away over here while my sister (and sometimes me) plays the piano.
Without a doubt, though, my very favorite carol is "Oh Holy Night". The lyrics tell the story of Christmas so well and the poetry just gets to my soul. Plus, the way it builds up to its ending.... beautiful! That's the one that does it for me!
Merry Christmas everybody! I hope you all enjoy your time with family and friends and that your are reminded of the true meaning of Christmas with *every* carol you hear this year. After all, the birth of Christ was only the second most important thing that ever happened. On Easter, we celebrate the first most important thing that ever happened, but without His birth, He couldn't have died for us.... so.... I guess His birth was THE greatest thing that ever happened, huh?
