Musical Monday - O Holy Night


Hosted by Diane at Good Mourning, Glory. One of my favorite sites!

I love the Christmas Season - I am sharing this song on the last Monday before Christmas. There's a little story behind it that I want to share...

When I was in the 7th grade so many moons ago - my junior high had a Christmas program. At the end of the program - all the children stood around the auditorium holding hands and singing "Oh Holy Night"... I was a kid that had the worst voice ever - seriously.... I still can't sing worth beans... Any way - my mom and dad came to the performance - afterward as mom, dad, and I were walking to the car my dad told me that it was his favorite song.... He said he could hear me singing and I sounded like an angel to him..... Now that he has passed away and this is my second Christmas with him gone - I wanted to share this song with you - every time I hear it - I can't help but well up..... God bless you and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I looooooooooooooooooove Josh Grobin. He is also so easy on the eyes. Can you image him singing to you each night sitting around the living room.

Now I'm spreading the word and I hope you don't mind, but it is for a good cause...

IT COSTS YOU NOTHING…Please do this for a sick child. http://theredheadriter.blogspot.com/2009/12/if-youre-blessed-take-minute.html

An Australian comedy band do a version of this. I always wondered how it was supposed to be funny and what it was about.. but I guess it's not supposed to be funny. It's just this song. And it's a great song.
