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 Monday, December 22. (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 Tuesday, 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 Blog Caroling Songbook Badge above.

DearMYRTLE's contribution to footnoteMaven's Tradition of Blog Caroling 2014 includes the thought: "...and become as little children..."


And let it begin with me.

Let there be peace on earth

The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father

Brothers all are we.

Let me walk with my brother

In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me

Let this be the moment now.

With every step I take

Let this be my solemn vow.

To take each moment

And live each moment

With peace eternally.

Let there be peace on earth,

And let it begin with me.

Looks like we've got a long cold winter ahead of us so this year I chose I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm as my contribution to fM's caroling festivities.

Merry Christmas!

I am not a blogger but so want to join the caroling. I've just posted this one on my Facebook page and am dedicating it this year to all of the animal rescue volunteers in our area. It is a favorite of mine.
