Favorite Christmas Carol

Posted on January 28, 2016 at 12:36 PM
Happy New Year to you all! January is almost over. Recently we had a snow storm, which I love but is rare here in Alabama. It reminded me of an old favorite Christmas carol that I learned as a kid. It was based on a poem by an English poet, Christina Rossetti back in 1872. It was later set to music by the composer Gustav Holst. To me , it really describes the essence of winter.
In the deep mid-winter,
Frosty wind made moan.
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone.
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow.
In the bleak mid-winter,
Long ago.
This is just the first of 5 verses that tell the story of Baby Jesus in Bethlehem.

On the time of some event due to the eve of Christmas this carol is going to sing at the stage of the functions. Many old songs are getting bored to us while hearing them so now these carols have innovations of the words for the celebrations.
