And...well

So once again life has gotten in the way and I have slid terribly behind with posting! Argh! But I do have lots of fun stuff planned for these next two weeks so stay tuned....

Christmas is only TWELVE days away, people. Contrary to popular opinion these are not the twelve days of Christmas. The twelve days of of Christmas are from Christmas to the Epiphany, January 6. More about that later. ;-) Still, twelve days till Christmas! It sends a lovely, little shiver of anticipation down my spine. I think here is a perfect example of anticipation being most of the fun. :-)

This is one of the most beautiful Christmas songs ever. Since it's sung in Italian, here are the English lyrics.

When blossoms flowered 'mid the snows
Upon a winter night
Was born the Child, the Christmas Rose
The King of Love and Light.
The angels sang, the shepherds sang
The grateful earth rejoiced
And at His blessed birth the stars
Their exultation voiced.
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord.
Again the heart with rapture glows
To greet the holy night
That gave the world its Christmas Rose
Its King of Love and Light.
Let ev'ry voice acclaim His name
The grateful chorus swell
From paradise to earth He came
That we with Him might dwell.
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord.

It's so beautiful! Just get past the whole intro which is in German and listen to this lady. Wow! I want to sing like this! :-)
