footnoteMaven's Tradition of Blog Caroling

Yes, Geneabloggers it's time for fM's favorite Christmas tradition. From the comfort of my blog, with Hot Toddy in hand, my flannel jammies and furry slippers on, I will blog my favorite Christmas Carol on Friday, December 14. (I sing so much better online than in person!)

So my fellow GeneaBloggers, I challenge each of you to blog your favorite Christmas Carol - Blog Caroling. We'll all sing along! (Blog Caroling is posting the lyrics, youtube video, etc. of your favorite Christmas carol on your blog.)

Blog Carol between today and Friday, 14 December. Post a note to the comments for this article directing us to your Blog Caroling Post and I will create a listing of all our favorites. (Please list Your Name, Blog Name, Favorite Carol and the link to your post in the comments below.)

If you sing along with us, feel free to snag the Victorian Santa Blog Caroling Badge above. When you select the badge, select "Save As" and choose the .png file. This has a transparent background and will show minus the white background.

Listen to a male trio called "The Priests" sing the carol "In the Bleak Midwinter," with words composed by Christina Rossetti in 1872. Less than 4 minutes. My husband and I have loved this simple, spare, pure song ever since we learned it as members of the Westport Madrigal Singers in the 1970s.

I am soooo happy to see this feature back for 2012! Peace and joy to you, dear friend. I'm sending a new old version of my favorite carol, "Silent Night," played on the antique music box inherited by Mr. Curator. Enjoy.

OK, I've made it official! Here's my entry. I love the sweet voice of Andrea Bocelli as he tenderly and clearly sings this traditional favorite.
