    Just to take a break from the heated "discussions". What are a few of your favorite Christmas Hymns.

    O Come O Come Emmanuel has been on my heart a lot this year. Here's a version I came across today.

    Great song. Not my favorite version, but still nice.

    I'm a big fan of Hark the Herald Angels Sing.

    Also, if we expand beyond the classic hymns, I love This is Christmas by Kutless.

    If I recall, wasn't there an epic Little Drummer Boy thread a few years back, Luke2427?

    I'm partial to one we don't sing much - "Gentle Mary Laid Her Child"

    The words are beautiful to me.

    "Gentle Mary laid her Child lowly in a manger;
    There He lay, the undefiled, to the world a Stranger:
    Such a Babe in such a place, can He be the Savior?
    Ask the saved of all the race who have found His favor.


    Angels sang about His birth; wise men sought and found Him;
    Heaven’s star shone brightly forth, glory all around Him:
    Shepherds saw the wondrous sight, heard the angels singing;
    All the plains were lit that night, all the hills were ringing.


    Gentle Mary laid her Child lowly in a manger;
    He is still the undefiled, but no more a stranger:
    Son of God, of humble birth, beautiful the story;
    Praise His Name in all the earth, hail the King of glory!"

    Christmas 1981 I was stationed at Ray Barracks in Friedberg, Germany. My oldest brother had been stationed in Aschaffenberg a few years before and had befriended a German family. They stayed in touch and their daughters traveled to the US to visit. Facing my first Christmas away from family I contacted my brother's friends and was invited to spend Christmas with them.

    We went to the midnight Weihnachten mass at Katholisches Pfarramt in Hösbach-Bahnhof. Anja and her sister sang Stille Nacht, a family sitting behind us sang in Italian and I sang in English. Memorable.

    Sinéad O'Connor's version is the top selling Christmas song in Britain... simple and wonderfully beautiful - who woulda guessed.

    Good mostly because the music is cribbed from Handel. Anyway, it's a second coming song, not a Nativity song.

    I know this isn't religious, but I've loved Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer! My favorite hymn though is Silent Night!
