I pondered on this and it gave me such an exhilarating feeling.
I see the streets brightly lit with twinkling lights, people parading with brightly coloured clothes, sweet music in the air, cherubic smiles on faces, jingle bells heralding a season unparalleled in the annals of history.
I think of the Christmas Carols……..age old songs that have stood the test of time.
Songs come and go….musical HITS hit themselves and fade away but not the carols.
From the SILENT NIGHT, which ushered in THE FIRST NOELLE, to THE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE, which we SEE AMID THE WINTER’S SNOW, onto THE SHEPHERDS WHO WATCHED THEIR FLOCKS BY NIGHT to the HARK OF THE HERALD ANGELS sliding to JOY TO THE WORLD that the DRUMMER BOY sang.
They never change. They are sung every Christmas season and yet resonate with freshness.
I know some evergreen songs. Like Sweet Mother, sung during events where mothers are celebrated.
Yet none as evergreen as the Christmas songs of old.
If someone composes a new Christmas Carol, will it be accepted like those hymns of old?
I just wonder!
I celebrate the Evergreen Christmas.
A season that brings so much joy.
A rebirth that echoes the birth of an evergreen saviour.
One who lives forever in our hearts……
Welcome to another EVERGREEN CHRISTMAS!
