When I was a kid, Christmas was a huge deal at church. We always had some big production to put on, tons of rehearsals, and then there would be the performances. I know all the traditional Christmas songs by heart as a result and have sung them in every type of costume from an angel to a wise man, and even a cow.
Yes, a cow. It wasn't my fault. I was just a kid. A kid sporting a giant paper mache cow head!
So surprisingly enough, my favorite carol of all time is decidedly nontraditional. I think this goes totally along with my non conformist ways, and to my delight Jake has also embraced it. Kids at school have accused me of being morbid and sadistic, but no matter. Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit faster then hearing THIS.
What's your favorite Christmas carol?
