The Glory of Christmas

One of the things I love most about the Christmas season is the glorious songs that I can, for a while, listen to again, until another year passes. I gotta admit, I like my Christmas songs traditional; no modernized rhythms, no rocking out interpretations, no contemporary vocal embellishments. I'm completely old-fashioned in this way. Of course there are some new songs that have been written that I have found extraordinarily beautiful and touching, such as Mercy Me's "Joseph's Lullaby" and a song written by Burt Alfred called "Some Children See Him" which I heard for the first time when Jesse Colin Young performed it at a local Borders to promote his Christmas CD. Of course, Josh's "Noel" is always nearby, whether on my CD player or my iPod or my computer; no other Christmas CD comes close. (My only complaint about it is that it doesn't include his "O Holy Night", which should have been the last song on it, methinks.) I'm glad they are still for sale; I have a feeling it will soon be time to buy another one, since this one is wearing out! ;) A big thanks to Josh for making my Christmas that much brighter.
