Do you hear what i hear?

Ooh we're into our lists over here at HH HQ!!  (That's a mouth full!)  so, much so I've only got some old Christmas pics to show you, these are from last year at the old place, though that does remind me I've got to look these out again!
Now we're onto top Christmas songs and carols!! Ive been playing them non stop since the end of November...you can just potter about and get on with what you need to, but with a little extra music floating around the background keeping things merry and bright!
What are your favourite carols or songs?  These are mine!
  • Away in a Manger
  • Joy to the World
  • Silent Night
  • Ding Dong Merrily on High
  • God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
  • Jingle Bells
  • Carol of the Bells
  • Good King Wenceslas
  • Deck the Halls
Carol of the Bells is utterly under rated, but is a wonderfully Christmassy song...yet don't play it when you feel a bit frazzled, it will only make you worse!                           I love this decoration, one of the first i bought with The Husband....look at all those little cards beside the window!! We always looked like we had so many, but the place was so teeny tiny....i feel so grateful that we are in a NICE WARM home now!

Spoilt for choice, my favs are;

Oh Come All Ye Faithfull
Once in Royal Davids City
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
and Away in a Manager

Off hopefully tomorrow to see o/h & little son play carols - might sing along too and again on Christmas Eve which is my favourite event of the year. Its an open air event and we meet friends and keep warm by singing with vigour and nips of sloe gin from a hipflask ;)
