I love Christmas carols. I love the sounds, the way the words and phrases fit together to make something lovely. I love the sentiments. I go all gooey inside when I hear the words "peace on earth, goodwill to men."
I go equally as gooey when I hear "I'll Be Home for Christmas" or "Upon the Housetop."
In fact, I'm downright sloppy over all the songs, whether they be hymns or "Frosty the Snowman."
I grew up in the non-digital age. There were no iPods or CD players or even tape recorders. There was the record player and the piano, but they were enough to make beautiful sounds from beautiful words.
So, for today, I am grateful for Christmas carols.
