  5. The Cicillian's says:

    My favorite Christmas Carol is O Holy Night!

  6. Jane says:

    My favorite carol is "Who is He in Yonder Stall?" Because to music is cool and kinda eerie, and not typically sang.

  7. Kelly Alexander says:

    My favorite Christmas song is I'll be home for Christmas. I never really understood it until Christmas of 2004 when my husband was serving in Iraq with the Marine Corps and I had 2 children and one on the way. He only made it home for Christmas that year in my heart. I have been lucky; every Christmas since then he has been home.

    I like "Mary Did You Know?". As a mother this song always reminds me of the perspective of Mary as she carried the Messiah in her womb and gave birth to Emanuel, God With Us. It had to be overwhelming for her to think about that.

    Dear Suzanne,

    My favorite Christmas hymn is O Holy Night.

    It captures the holiness of God and of Jesus Christ, God incarnate entering the world…God in the flesh.

    I have some wonderful memories of this hymn, one dating back to Jr. High when a friend sang a solo of O Holy Night at school Christmas concert.

    It never fails to bring a tear to my eye or lump in my throat.

    Blessings in Christ…Susan

    My favorite carol is Silent Night. My church sings it last at Christmas Eve Candlelight Service…the lights are dimmed and everyone is holding a lighted candle. It sends shivers down your spine! And hopefully when you walk out of the church after midnight, it is quiet and snow is falling. That is one of the most special and "holy" moments of Christmas for me.

  14. Linda says:

    My favorite Christmas Carol is "Hippopatamus for Christmas" it reminds me of the innocence of children. Children's faith is greater without any limitations. That is why we should have "childlike faith".

  15. NancyG says:

    My favorite carol is Dominick the Donkey…when my son was small he had the donkey part and was laughing so hard by the time his part came he came in late so all you heard was him heehawing (if that is a word) while the rest of us were singing. We were all laughing by the time the song was over. He is older now but smiles everytime he hears it..he's too cool to heehaw now..(not!)

  16. Andrea says:

    Thanks – Andrea

    I would love to win a book!! My favorite Christmas songs will always be Silent Night and Joy to the World. They are just such magnificent pieces of music- so meaningful. Also, when I was in Grade 6 my teacher taught me to sing the alto part to these two songs. I still can do it to this day.

    Oh Holy Night is my favorite Christmas song. Every time I hear this song and picture the words, chills run through my body.

    There are no words to describe this song, but yet there are.

    The world was in chaos and sin, in need of God’s son. Can you picture that night. What a divine night, the skies quiet and clear, the stars brightly shining and there Jesus was in Mary’s arms. The thrill of hope, a new and glorious morn was awaiting everyone. The angels singing, the world rejoicing for God sent his son to save each and every one of us. How could you not fall on your knees and rejoice that Christ, our savior, was born. Change shall he bring if we only open our hearts and let him in.
    Oh night divine, Oh night when Christ was born.

    I love Joy to the World because it reminds me of the central focus of the Christmas season.
    i love Christmas and my collection of nativities is a great way to open the conversation about what Christmas really is about and why it is important.
