Christmas Carols

Yesterday was our second After School Jams. As I said last week, we had 22 kids and I challenged the kids to each bring a friend. Well, this afternoon we had 28 total kids with 2 kids from last week not attending. So, we had 8 new kids. It was very exciting to see. One of our priorities of our After School Jams is to reinforce the Christmas Carols with the kids. When I grew up, we were singing Christmas carols in Sunday School, in regular school, jr choir, etc. Today, so many of the kids don't know the traditional Christmas Hymns like Joy to the World, Silent Night, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Away in a Manger, etc. So, until our Christmas break, we are teaching the kids Christmas Carols each week. This got me thinking about my favorite Christmas Carols. I love Christmas and the hyms that come with it. I am always frustrated because it seems we never get to sing them very much in church because so many of them aren't to be sung until after the birth of Jesus. I wanted to share with you my favorite Christmas song. This version is sung by Josh Groban, one of my favorite performers. I hope you enjoy it and it reminds you of that one HOLY NIGHT!
I think it is time to get my Christmas CD's out of the storage box! How about you...What is your favorite Christmas song? Sing with your child.
