When we exchanged rings, we hoped our family of two would grow.
It has, into a family of 4. We're just split in half.
Two of us walk the Earth while two of us fly in Heaven.

Christmas carols

These are some of what I'm listening to today.

In the bleak midwinter - Moya Brennan (Enya's sister)

In the bleak midwinter frosty wind made morn
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow
In the bleak midwinter long ago

Our God, Heaven cannot hold him, nor earth sustain
Heaven and earth shall flee away when he comes to reign
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ

Angels and archangels may have gathered there
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air
But His mother only in her maiden bliss
Worshipped the Beloved with a kiss

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb
If I were a wiseman, I would do my part
Yet what can I give Him? Give Him my heart

O Holy Night - Apocalyptica. This is my favorite Christmas carol as it is so hauntingly beautiful when done correctly. (By correctly, I mean by someone who can hit the high note easily and doesn't add in any extra vowels. All you Xtina wannabes know what I mean!)

Love Came Down at Christmas - Jars of Clay

Christmas Eve/Sarajevo - Trans Siberian Orchestra

Carol of the Bells - Trans Siberian Orchestra

Hallelujah Chorus - Handel's Messiah

Hallelujah Chorus - Silent Monks

Just youtube Trans Siberian Orchestra and prepare for your mind to be blown! ;)

What are some of your favorite Christmas carols and why?
