It’s December, and therefore it’s time for one of my favourite things; Christmas carols!
Normally on a Friday, I share a poem or a story, but I’m getting into the Christmas spirit this year, and instead sharing a favourite Christmas carol each week, alongside a story of why I love it so much.
In my family, we have always made a big deal of decorating our Christmas tree. Every year, we get a new ornament to add to our individual collection. Every time you get a new ornament, you write it on your Christmas ornament list (on the inside of a shoebox lid), as a short description that you’re meant to remember, alongside the year it was received.
As we’ve grown up, this has invariably caused problems. Whose ornament is whose, who has this gingerbread man, or that angel. Which snowman do you have? Mine says I have cats, but I thought it was the one with the boiled lolly. Mostly it has worked out.
But every time this song comes on, we always hum along. It’s beautiful, and really does get stuck in your head. So enjoy!
