CHRISTMAS EVE

The meaning of Christmas … the Night before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads …

“That’s Christmas To Me”

The fireplace is burning bright, shining all on me
I see the presents underneath the good old Christmas tree
And I wait all night ’til Santa comes to wake me from my dreams
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I see the children play outside, like angels in the snow
While mom and daddy share a kiss under the mistletoe
And we’ll cherish all these simple things wherever we may be
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I’ve got this Christmas song in my heart
I’ve got the candles glowing in the dark
I’m hanging all the stockings by the Christmas tree
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I listen for the thud of reindeer walking on the roof
As I fall asleep to lullabies, the morning’s coming soon
The only gift I’ll ever need is the joy of family
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I’ve got this Christmas song in my heart (song in my heart)
I’ve got the candles glowing in the dark
I’m hanging all the stockings by the Christmas tree
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

Ooooohhhhoooohhooohhh
Ooooohhhhoooohhooohhh

Oh, the joy that fills our hearts and makes us see
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

I’ve got this Christmas song in my heart
I’ve got the candles glowing in the dark
And then for years to come we’ll always know one thing
That’s the love that Christmas can bring
Oh, why? ‘Cause that’s Christmas to me

CHRISTMAS EVE

This Christmas Eve, millions of American children will leave out cookies and milk for Santa Claus to enjoy after his trip down their chimney with his bag of gifts. Some will add a few carrots for his trusty reindeer, as Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph need sustenance as well.

But it hasn’t always been that way.

According to one theory, the cookies-and-milk custom is derived from an older tradition, when families would stuff stockings with goodies for Santa and hang them by the chimney, his preferred mode of entrance, as a welcoming gift. Now, however, those stockings are usually chock-full of treats and smaller gifts for the family members themselves.

ON CHRISTMAS EVE 

Tonight is that special night of the year when all of us, as children, waited for the arrival of Christmas day.

I remember the exhilaration and excitement as we were told it’s time for bed. It’s still happening with my grandchildren.

However, no matter what your beliefs are, ’tis the night when Jesus was born.

Let’s not forget the reason for the season. 

Hope you enjoy this music video.

Merry Christmas to one and all.

Stunning Rendition Of ‘Silent Night’

By: Paul Morris

While some people got excited about special holiday sales, black Friday, and Cyber Monday, there are others who know how to celebrate the real reason for the season!

One such group of men is non other than the talented band simply known as the Piano Guys. These four men have managed to reach the number one position on the Billboard charts on multiple occasions, and when you watch the breathtaking video below, you’ll easily see why they’re going full viral!

While all of their musical renditions are impressive, they’ve just recently released a breathtaking version of the world’s most popular Christmas song, “Silent Night.” Alongside legendary Spanish singer Plácido Domingo, this has to be one of the most beautiful videos on the Internet.

When the children’s choir joins in, it’s just absolute magic. Even though this song is nearly 200 years old, and its been sung by groups spanning from every single musical genre, from rock ‘n’ roll, to Bing Crosby, it’s no surprise why this song continues to warm the hearts of everyone who hears it, because it’s just that soothing.

Filmed in the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City, this music video is both beautiful to watch and listen to!

“Silent Night”

Plácido Domingo – ThePianoGuys 

~~Published on Nov 30, 2015~~

Meaning/Story behind the song

Silent Night, Holy Night. All is calm, all is bright!

Sometimes it seems there is little in this world today that is silent, holy, calm or bright. However noisy, unholy, frenetic, or dark it may appear to be, music such as the immortal hymn, “Silent Night,” carries with it a feeling that can remind us there is still an abundance of virtue all around us. There is hope and beauty. And there is light.

To properly paint this feeling we collaborated with none other than the tenor legend, Plácido Domingo, whose sublime vocal gift is rivaled by his kindness and sincerity. It was a joy to work with him. He is an artist whose illustrious, exalted career has not snuffed out his sweet disposition or his genuine love for the art of music. Joining us are the children from the Cathedral School Choristers, whose pure faith proclaim the profound message of this hymn. We filmed this during an East coast tour in the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, one of the largest cathedrals in the world, a colossal monument to the greatest gift ever given, the Son of God.

May your Christmas this year be filled with serenity, spirituality, peace, and felicity.

IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE … A VERY SPECIAL DAY OF THE YEAR

Christmas Eve is the evening or day before Christmas Day. It occurs on December 24 in Western Christianity and the secular world, and is considered one of the most culturally significant celebrations in Christendom and Western society, where it is widely observed, by Christians and by many others, as a full or partial holiday in anticipation of Christmas Day.

Christmas celebrations have long begun on the night of the 24, due in part to the Christian liturgical day starting at sunset, a practice inherited from Jewish tradition and based on the story of Creation in the Book of Genesis: “And there was evening, and there was morning – the first day.” Many churches still ring their church bells and hold prayers in the evening; for example, the Nordic Lutheran churches. Since tradition holds that Jesus was born at night (based in Luke 2:6-8), Midnight Mass is celebrated on Christmas Eve, traditionally at midnight, in commemoration of his birth.

The idea of Jesus being born at night is reflected in the fact that Christmas Eve is referred to as Heilige Nacht (Holy Night) in German, Nochebuena (the Good Night) in Spanish and similarly in other expressions of Christmas spirituality, such as the song “Silent Night, Holy Night”.
