Christmas Ornaments

Christmas ornaments may have a special in everyone's hearts depending on who you are.  As a child, I received a special ornament from a grade school teacher or from Sunday School. My grandmother would give me a special ornament as well.  I only have a few ornaments that I personally have bought myself.  Now, my mother has bought my son a special ornament each year for what activity he is in like baseball, football, scouts etc.  Many couples have an ornament that says First Christmas together. I know some people have a themed Christmas them with the special glass ornaments or with ribbons  or special colored lights.

What kind of ornaments does your tree have on it?

Christmas Songs ...

I enjoy hearing most of the Christmas songs that are out there.  It does bother me a little when they start playing non-stop Christmas music before December.  Christmas music is special because you only hear in during this time of year.  Those special Christmas hymns one may only hear on Christmas eve night at church.  Each singer has sung a song their own way even though it has been done before.

Away in a Manager --- I used to remember this song as one the little kids would sing in the Christmas program at church.

Silent Night --I remember learning to sing this song in German.

A few of my favorites: Where are you Christmas?,  Joy to the World, Do you hear what I hear,

Do you have favorite Christmas songs?

The Month of Christmas

December is all about Christmas.  To me, it is a shame that people and stores put up decorations before the month even starts. I do not purposely listen to Christmas music before the month starts either.  Why should we rush Christmas to get here?

Christmas is about so many things.  This month I will try to write a post each day about something related to Christmas and what it means to me maybe.
