I interrupt this forum to bring you my favorite Christmas Carol of all time, ready or not! :D

I just love, love, love CHRISTMAS!

Mr. ABC is making dinner, and I am decorating the tree. A real Charlie Brown looking one that he cut down himself from out the back in our woods. Love it anyway ... perhaps because it is a Charlie Brown one, and not perfect.

Here ya go! Is the Harry Simeone Chorale version. Enjoy!

Good stuff, thanks to both - I am not Christian nor religious, but my favorite is little Drummer boy for as long as I can recall.

This one was what pushed me to learn the piano - I don't know how to embed youtube videos, but here is link: http://youtu.be/Hajwg6kxpQ4

They are indeed marvelous!

Years ago I worked at a Scottish Inn when my sister died. After taking a few days off I had a grueling shift (16 hours) and since I lived so far from work, they always gave me a room to stay in for those long days. ANYHOW...It was a winter night and the boss and I had a couple rum and cokes after our work was finished. Very relaxed, I wandered up to my room. On the table in my room was a CD player, a condolence card and a small wrapped gift. I read the card and opened the package...It was one of their CD's. I got ready for bed, turned on the CD and laid in bed under the skylight, during a full moon, watching the snow softly falling and cried my heart out. Very cathartic. Those Celtic women will always have a soft place in my heart.

My favorite Christmas song is "Do You Hear What I Hear". The version I remember from my childhood is Nat King Cole's. I have a CD by a local singer, Thornetta Davis, which has a great version of the song.

Rats, Noonwitch!

Now you've got me reaching for the kleenex. My childhood was filled with songs from Nat King Cole's music. My father, back in the 50's, used to play him and Mantovanni (sp?) on the "stereo" til the cows came home, every weekend.

Don't have the time to keep looking on youtube for your song ... but found this for you.

Hope you like it. Has beautiful images as well. Enjoy!

Oops! One more correction then outta here!

Just remembered, back in the 50's was known as a "hi-fi" not a stereo.

Good grief, am showing my age again! :o

My parents had a classic "hi-fi" when I was a kid. It came in it's own cabinet. You could stack the records on it so that the next one would drop when the last one was done playing. The last time I saw a hi-fi was at the Henry Ford Museum.

I think our hi fi was a Magnvox.
