Christmas songs

I have a new favorite Christmas song. For years, my favorite song at Christmastime has been "Mary, Did You Know?" While I still like it a lot, my new favorite is "How Many Kings?" by Downhere.

This song embodies everything I believe about Christmas - There is only ONE God who sent HIS Son to this earth so suffer and die for MY sins. I don't deserve it. I can never be good enough; it is only through that sacrifice that I can receive eternal life.

Christmas falls on a Sunday this year. Sadly, many churches are not having a service on Sunday so that families can celebrate Christmas. Really??? If we stop to think about what Christmas is about, shouldn't we desire to spend at least a portion of our day in worship of Him? Christmas isn't about presents, or family, or baking, or decorating - although all of those things are good, none of them should be our focus. The minister of music at our church wrote this editorial  about the lack of services on Christmas Day.

What is your favorite Christmas song? Why is it special to you?

On an unrelated note, can anyone answer this question - what in the world do "scary ghost stories" have to do with Christmas? Every time I listen to "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year", I ask myself that question. I still don't have an answer.
