I've always loved Christmas. I can still remember the sights, sounds, smells and emotions of my childhood Christmases. Mom and Dad always made a big deal of Christmas and many of those same aspects of the celebration are still a part of our family gatherings. They probably always will be!
One particular memory I have is of the Christmas music my parents always played. There was one record (yes--a record!) they played every year, of the old crooners and ladies with classy voices, that I especially loved. One song always stopped me in my tracks, and I would sit quietly and listen to it, and even hope the record would repeat so I could hear it again in a half-hour or so. :) It was sung by a lady and always touched my heart. I thought I would share it with y'all today. :) This isn't the version I knew as a child, but it's sung just as well and has the same lyrics. Enjoy!
