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.
This one is a different ‘flavour’ to the previous weeks. I’m quite certain that my friends despair of me and my music taste at this time of year.
If you grew up as a Christian in Australia, chances are you are familiar, and fond of, Colin Buchanan.
But did you know he has multiple Christmas albums?
One thing that some people don’t know about Colin Buchanan is he also produces a lot of comedy content. Incredibly silly songs, about nonsensical things, and really very funny.
My sisters and I only discovered this particular song as adults. Needless to say, we now listen to it every Christmas, and have a bit of a laugh.
If you’re Australian, chances are you’ll enjoy this more than others. It is full of names only we understand. But everyone should give it a listen; it’s ridiculous and fun, which is part of what Christmas should be, right?
