A Christmas Carol Advent

The purpose of this post is to announce a change of pace for the month of December.  I love Christmas.  I always have.  I love Christmas Day, and I love everything that goes along with the Christmas season.  I love Christmas music of all sorts.  In fact, I loved it all long before I ever knew Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.  Obviously, since that time, it has taken on a whole new meaning.  This Christmas season, I decided to use this blog to feature some of my favorite Christmas songs.

So, Beginning December 1 and continuing through December 25, this blog will host A Christmas Carol Advent.  We will count down until Christmas through 25 popular Christmas songs.  Each day will present a different song complete with a link to a youtube video, a brief history, a commentary and analysis of the song, a listing of questions that can be used for reflection and devotion and the lyrics to each song.  I have tried to feature a mixture of traditional and contemporary songs.

I hope that you will interact with this advent calendar by posting comments on the many Christmas Songs that will be featured.  If you have an interesting fact about the song, feel free to post it.  If you want to answer one of the questions posed for each day, please feel free to leave a comment.  I hope you will enjoy this feature, and we will get back to normal posts and articles following Christmas!
