Thirteen of my favorite Christmas Carols
(And, by no means, an exhaustive list)
1. Stille Nacht (Silent Night) - I learned this one as a child, but have a fondness for the German version, which I learned while living in Germany in elementary school
2. Little Drummer Boy - This story of the little boy who has nothing to give has always touched me
3. What Child Is This - The melody of this song is nice and smooth and just begs to be sung
4. Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord (by Boney M) - I love this group's Christmas Album; it's very much a product of the disco era, but then again, so am I. I first bought this album on cassette in Germany back in 1985. When I finally wore it out a couple of years ago, I ordered a CD copy.
5. Mary Did You Know? - I only heard this song by Clay Aiken for the first time a couple of years ago, but it has become a favorite that I could listen to over and over again.
6. Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful) - Like Silent Night, I learned this one in the original Latin while living in Germany as a child. And, all these years later, I still remember it.
7. Someday At Christmas (by The Temptations) - I know others have sung it, but their version is my favorite.
8. When A Child Is Born (by Boney M) - Another song off their Christmas Album.
9. White Christmas - No Christmas is complete without Bing.
10. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting. . .) - I particularly love Nat King Cole's version.
11. O Little Town Of Bethlehem - A calm, quiet song that gives me wonderful visuals of a small, sleepy little town in the desert.
12. Do You Hear What I Hear? - Although mainly sung at Christmas, the words of this song are applicable all year long.
13. Joy To The World - For me, this song says it all. This is why I, as a Christian, celebrate Christmas.
