When I think of Christmas songs, I think of carols--my favorite is Silent Night, not only because it's beautiful but also because I learned in college to sing it in German. ("Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht...") I love most of the standard carols. But recently I heard Frank Sinatra, with choral accompaniment, do a lovely song called Bells of Christmas, set to the tune known as Greensleeves. I heard a song called I Believe In Father Christmas that still has me scratching my head about whether it carries a deep message or sacreligious.
What are your favorite Christmas songs? And do you find yourself singing them, even though it may be sunny outside (as it is here in Texas)? Let me know. And Merry Christmas.
