"Little Drummer Boy" ~ This is my absolute favorite Christmas Carol. What's yours? VN8

"Silent Night" ~ I absolutely love Johnny Cash and found this version of my favorite Christmas Carol! VN8

LOL VN8, it seems I'm not the only one who can't pick just ONE!!
Leave it to Christmas for you and I to agree on things! I too love Silent Night, and I just adore Johnny Cash! The video was GREAT, thank you for sharing it. Oh, and wasn't the pianist simply adorable?

HAHA ~ you got me!

BTW, he did a beautiful rendition of the Little Drummer Boy! But then again, I don't think Johnny Cash could have done anything poorly.

Angie, no way to edit out the other music on the video. I still have one favorite. That doesn't mean I don't love all the other carols but Little Drummer Boy is an amazing story of offering what gets so lost during the season of commercialism, the Little Drummer Boy gives a gift of love from his heart to his Savior.

As a side note and I have no idea why there is so much concern over the phrase "carol", but a Christmas Carol is defined as:

"A Christmas carol (also called a noël) is a carol (song or hymn) whose lyrics are on the theme of Christmas, or the winter season in general and which are traditionally sung in the period before Christmas."

I prefer more traditional carols that have a religious theme, I appreciate them all and the discussion was what so that I can learn what carols other people enjoy.

Following are lyrics from another Christmas Carol that is full of folly:

Jolly old Saint Nicholas,
Lend your ear this way!
Don't you tell a single soul
What I'm going to say;
Christmas Eve is coming soon;
Now, you dear old man,
Whisper what you'll bring to me;
Tell me if you can.


When the clock is striking twelve,
When I'm fast asleep,
Down the chimney broad and black,
With your pack you'll creep;
All the stockings you will find
Hanging in a row;
Mine will be the shortest one,
You'll be sure to know.

Johnny wants a pair of skates;
Susy wants a dolly;
Nellie wants a story book;
She thinks dolls are folly;
As for me, my little brain
Isn't very bright;
Choose for me, old Santa Claus,
What you think is right.

Wonderful video! I love to listen to Johnny sing! He was the best!

I love the "Little Drummer Boy" and "Silent Night" too.

I enjoy the children's songs because they are fun.

Thanks for sharing!
