The Day Before Christmas

It is the day before Christmas and things are almost ready for tomorrow’s celebration: gifts are bought, fridge is stocked with the making of a meal, laundry is up to date, and the Christmas spirit abounds. While wrapping presents and doing the finishing touches to my home, I enjoy listening to my CD of Christmas Carols.

A christmas celebration would be lacking without Away in a Manger:

Or even Silent Night:

Among my favourites is Come All Ye Faithful:

And of course Angels We Have Heard On High:

The music, for me, is a part of what makes Christmas.

Christmas in the post-War United States

I would like to wish all my blogger friends a Merry Christmas. Enjoy the time spent with your loved ones as you celebrate the birth of Christ. For those who do do celebrate Christmas, I wish you a wonderful holiday with your family.

Share in the comments below you favourite Christmas song. I know I will enjoy listening to it. πŸ™‚

  1. Wow … quite the collection! Of these, Andrea Bocelli’s Angels We Have Heard on High is my favorite. Thanks for sharing these joys of the season with us. Merry Christmas to you and your family … and I hope you (and your readers) see my gifts for the season.


  2. Wishing you all the best of this special season, and an exception new year.
    Two categories in favo(u)rite song — silly and serious.
    Silly: “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch,” from the original animated Grinch Who Stole Christmas (1966) with Boris Karloff narrating and singing.
    Serious: “Do You See What I See?”
