Maybe not on the traditional Christmas song list, but this is my favorite song version of telling the Christmas story.
It’s also interesting to me that in my head this song is always “Irish” despite who is singing it and when.
I imagine a miserable rainy, Irish Christmas day outside while a band plays this song with red faces while the patrons at the Pub dance.
The joy they find is hopefully connected to that very first Christmas day when God decided to send his son to die on a cross for you.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
I think of you every time I hear that song. Merry Christmas to you and your family too!
