I grew up loving all Christmas songs. Of course as a child I loved the ones about Santa and I recall my dad singing them to me. I also remember learning all of the traditional carols. We had a little song book that each year I would pull out and I would sing each and every carol over and over. I would sing them anywhere and everywhere. These days my Christmas choral concerts are usually limited to the shower but I still love a good carol.

It was my dad also that gathered us around the piano, he could play anything he heard and had a gorgeous bass voice. :D

Nothing better than some Christmas carols. I don't remember singing them much as a child but when my children were younger we would go out driving around looking at Christmas lights and playing Christmas songs...none of us can really carry a tune. But singing all together always sounded so good!

I love them, too! Did you create the beautiful star? Unfortunately, with this carol come stupid memories and naughty words from grade school:
"We three kings of orient are
Riding on a loaded cigar"
I'm sure you know the rest...

I am a huge carol lover too. Although I love some of the christmas songs in the charts I don't think you can beat the traditional carols that have the real meaning or what christmas is all about. Enjoy your shower concerts!!

I love Christmas songs too, with "In the Bleak Mid Winter" being my fave :) xx

Some of my all-time favorites are traditional Christmas carols.

What a beautiful picture and poem!
I love Christmas songs :) I was in the choir and I loved it. But, like you, I don't sing much these days...

I love Christmas music also---and am amazed that I still (after all of these years) know all of the words to so many of the songs.

Hugs,
Betsy

I start listening to Xmas music as soon as it's on Sirus radio! But my favorite CD is Tony Bennett's Christmas - Happy holidays to you and the family.

I have a lot of fun with the song myself.

One of my favorites- I sure wish we would sing more of them. They seem to have passed out of favor.

I love listening to Christmas carols. The older ones, not ones sung by Justin Bieber! :)

Reeni said...

I love Christmas carols too but can't sing for anything. In fact, it's best if I don't.

Chatty Crone said...

I do love that song Ann. Did you make that beautiful star? Awesome. sandie

I wonder how many of our under 25 years olds could sing these songs!?

Anne said...

When I was little, I had a book of simple Christmas carols for the piano. I still have it and my daughter loves it.

When in doubt, sing loud. That's my motto all year 'round! :)
