So about four years ago a friend suggested to me that I check out this karaoke site – Singsnap. Kind of cool site. I didn’t spend a lot of time on there – I was only on there a few months – but I quickly recorded and stockpiled some of my favorite Christmas carols before I left.
So if you’re in the mood for some Christmas tunes today – here you go. 🙂
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

The Christmas Song

Hey, I forgot what a great voice you have but now I remember you sang Summertime at what I think was your dad’s birthday party and I really loved it. Are you the soloist at your branch church? Somebody sent me a link to a youtube video today and I tried to embed it here but could not for some reason but if you get the chance go to youtube and check out a user called Radiant and the video title is “The Best Christmas Song I’ve Heard” it is terrific . It is done by a LDS church group and they always do good Christmas music. I agree with your comment about have yourself a Merry little Christmas . It has always seemed sad to me too. Another song they play during the holidays by Dan Fogelberg I think called same auld lang syne is a nice melody but a real downer if you ask me! Thanks for the photos too. We are having very warm tornado weather and your photos and music seem more like Christmas! Take care, Rick
Oh! Thank you, Rick! And I know the Fogelberg song you’re talking about – I feel the same way about it – it’s sort of poignant – sad and sweet and beautiful. And now I MUST check out The Best Christmas Song! I think music must be an important part of LDS life – I’ve known so many wonderful musicians who were Mormon.
Merry Christmas, Rick!
Merry Christmas to you too, and all your family! I just listened to the song I suggested to you from youtube again and it really is beautiful , I love the passion of it you know, It brought tears to my eyes. But then I think about what I believe is the real Christ and what that is . It is so much more than most people can comprehend as I can’t completely understand it myself. I guess that is why Mrs Eddy said you have to study Science and Health. I am sitting here tonight ,really moved by the music , but then realizing that the real shocking ,momentous truth has been going on quietly in the CS church. Beautiful ,heartfelt music is wonderful , but witnessing like I did , the healing of terminal cancer is something else. Oh well, I am just going on. I am in a reflective mood I guess. Merry Christmas again! And I look forward to another year of great work from you! Rick
