Like yesterday, I’ll keep this brief. I would hate for the paltry shadow of my ego to limit the fun we have on Christmas Day. 😉
This is a day where we celebrate life. We celebrate the warmth of love between friends and family, between man and his fellow man, and the unconditional, unceasing love of God for all of His children. We celebrate hope, as the time turns to a new year, and as the winter days shall soon grow warmer and brighter. What better time to remember the Son who came to give His all for us?
So, with a few videos of inspiring music and the stories behind these songs, I say again: Merry Christmas!
Speaking of hope: the Longfellow’s Christmas, as Ed Herman tells the story behind “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.”
Speaking of love: Jane Seymour, the Choir, the Orchestra, etc. tell the story of “Good King Winceslas.” This one may be a bit long, fyi. 😉
Speaking of remembering God and His Son: Peter Hollens, David Archuleta, the Piano Guys, the Choir, and a number of other people set a new world record for the largest Nativity depiction as they sing “Angels from the Realms of Glory.” This one, I particularly love because it does not belong to anyone. It belongs to everyone. Much like the Savior’s love.
Enjoy your holiday! Merry Christmas!
