25 Days of Christmas Music, December 24, 2013

Well our internet was down yesterday so I couldn’t post. That means I will make up for it on Terrible Tuesday.

This is my all time terrible Christmas song, The Cat Carol

Second on the list, is “My Grown Up Christmas List”

Third is a catchy little tune, with a creepy message for all children “I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause. 2 of my children say I have nothing to worry about. One because she says Mommy hates beards. Another because he trusts his mommy’s moral judgment. The other is just ornery.

The last of the day is “Christmas Shoes”. Arguments could be made for this being higher on the list, but I don’t want to give it any more credit or recognition.

25 Days of Christmas Music, December 21, 2013 Saturday Free For All

Don’t forget Amazon is still giving away 25 days of free Christmas music.   Didn’t see too many I would recommend this time, but I did find it ironic that Straight No Chaser’s “Nutcracker” was today’s song.  Our house was decorated with Nutcrackers by some “friends last night as a joke.

Noisetrade also has some decent Christmas music for free.  Here is a fun album with various artists and 2 songs from Jars  of Clay.

 

25 Days of Christmas Music, December 18, 2013 Wednesday Wonder

There are different kinds of Wonder.  Internet Choirs and Flash Mob Orchestras are wonders.  However, the greatest wonder that the earth has every known came over 2000 years ago, but it was anticipated for thousands of years before that.  He was announced to shepherds who wondered, wise men wondered, even His mother wondered.

I love this song which beautifully describes  the fulfillment and wonder of Jesus being born.

This is Jesus, He has come.

Came to rescue fallen ones.

This is Jesus. He has come.

The night is over, the day is dawned.

Turn to the Savior, do not fear.

The night is over, the day is dawned.

The God of heaven Has come near.

This is Jesus.  He has come.
