It's that time again! It's Songs That Make Us Sing Saturday - Christmas Edition!
I think just about everyone who's got ears has heard some rendition or other of the beloved Christmas Carol, Silent Night. Whether Christian, Agnostic or Athiest, if you were to ask pretty much any person if they knew it, they could at least hum the melody for you.
According to Wikipedia, it was written in Salzburg Austria, by Father Joseph Mohr (lyrics) and Franz Xavier Gruber (melody) and has been recorded by over 300 artists, in over 44 languages. The English translation was published in 1859 by John Freeman Young, Second Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Florida.
Now, it could be because of my heritage, or just because it's so beautifully done, but either way, what follows is without question my favorite version... EVER!
Wishing you a Blessed, Joyful, Love Filled, (Green) Christmas
Mrs B and Family
