fM'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 Sunday, December 21. (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 Monday, 23 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.

Here's mine - it's a Huron Indian Carol which all Canadian school children learn.
Olive Tree Genealogy blog at http://olivetreegenealogy.blogspot.ca/2013/12/twas-in-moon-of-wintertime-jesous.html The carol is called T'was in the Moon of Wintertime. In the Huron Language it is Jesous Ahatonhia. I have provided the YouTube video of it sung in Huron, French and English.

Merry Christmas! We are caroling at Nolichucky Roots, singing an anthem from long ago choir days. Sing We Noel sparks many memories. http://nolichuckyroots.blogspot.com/2013/12/blog-caroling-sing-we-noel.html

Merry Christmas, footnoteMaven, and thanks for once again hosting this charming digital tradition.

After a bleak year, A Family Tapestry is Adding A Hopeful Voice to Blog Caroling with the Gloucester Cathedral Choir's tender offering of Gustav Holst's setting to Christina Rossett's poem, "In the Bleak Midwinter."

I hadn't thought of it this year until I saw your post...thanks for the invitation! This isn't a true carol in the musical sense, but it is a favorite Christmas song. I hope you enjoy it: Mary Did You Know.

Oh, footnoteMaven, I was afraid you weren't going to lead the choir this year. I'm so glad you've invited us to carol with you again. I'm singing at http://nancysfamilyhistoryblog.blogspot.com/2013/12/what-shall-we-give-caroling-with.html. Thanks and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Hello dear footnoteMaven! I've joined you for some caroling once again. This time it's "The Twelve Days of Christmas". I've shared the lyrics (in Irish and English) and the back story about the song's hidden meaning within my article "God in a pear tree: The hidden meaning behind 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'" at http://www.tierneyhistory.blogspot.com/2013/12/god-in-pear-tree-hidden-meaning-behind.html. A very Merry Christmas to you, your family, and all of your readers!

I pray for the peace and love, tenderly sung in this song titled "Where are you Christmas?" by a girl of tender years. Though we come from all walks of life, with different religious beliefs, one things rings true -- the desire for peace and love among family and dear friends.



Merry Christmas, dear, dear fm, and Mr. Maven. It's been rough, but we are glad to see you are both on the mend. May the new year bring additional miracles of health and strength. And to quote another "tiny person", Dicken's Tiny Tim, "God bless us everyone!"
