Reading bloggernacle Christmas posts each year is one way I observe Christmas.
Here are some of my favorites:
We watched Mr. Krueger’s Christmas a few nights ago. This post wouldn’t be as good without its link to
John Jordan Fowles’ O Tannenbaum.
Christmas on the mission was lonely, but God gave us a gift.
December into May: Two Christmas Poems.
Christmas music you might want to consider
What are your favorites? Any sermons, essays, blog posts, etcetera, that you’d recommend?
And if anyone has a link to “Yes, Virginia” and to Russell Fox’s battling belief in Santa Claus, please put them in. Christmas wouldn’t be the same without them.
Thanks for the link to ABEV. For the sake of accuracy, Jordan wrote the O Tannenbaum post, not me, and here is a link to the post on our current platform, which retains the formatting:
Adam – My favorite Christmas story, that I love to read at least once every year, is “The Christmas Wood Pile” from the December 1976 Ensign. I guess that gives away by relative age! Sorry for the long link below.
For your information, I have rewritten the words to “O Christmas Tree” in my family. They go like this: “O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree.” You have my permission to make copies to distribute amongst your choirs and carollers.

I’m enjoying Rebecca’s advent calendar at FMH–starts the day off nicely even when Scripture study gets crammed into the baby’s naptime.
