Thursday Thirteen #9 — Favorite Christmas Carols

Posted by infinitygoods on December 5, 2007

Welcome back to Thursday Thirteen, where I let my readers in on some trivia about me. Today I share with you 13 favorite Christmas Carols, and let me tell you it was a very tough choice because I not only love everything about Christmas, but I was also in my church choir, so I have so many fond memories connected with so many carols and hymns. It was sort of like asking a mother to pick her favorite children; it’s just not possible. So, in no particular order, here are my 13 favorites for the day. Ask me next week, and I’m sure I’ll come up with at least another 8 or 10 different favorites.

  1. Silent Night
  2. Do You Hear What I Hear
  3. Mary Did You Know
  4. Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant
  5. The Twelve Days of Christmas
  6. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
  7. Joy To The World!
  8. Handel’s Messiah
  9. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  10. Jingle Bells
  11. O, Tannenbaum!
  12. O, Little Town of Bethlehem
  13. Carol of the Bells

    Yes, we do sing the Messiah in church and during our concerts. We have a great choir director who was even able to get us to sing with the Los Angeles Opera. No small feat, as I’m sure you realize. We also sing Rudolf in church, but not during the service, only during our Christmas concerts. We also sing it when we go caroling to a local hospital.

    I love “Mary did you know?” though I always thought the name was “Mother Mary” growing up. The version I have is by Roger Whittiker and my parents had it on vinyl when I was a kid. I hunted for it for years and finally found it on iTunes last year. It’s such a beautiful song.

    Happy belated TT!

    The one that sticks out the most to me is “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. I remember when we would sing it in grade school, me and my classmates would all sing the “Five golden rings” line and then shout the same line right after.
