Gord's Favorites Meme

Gord at Following Frodo, who is a nice person and prefers to focus on positives rather than negatives, invites us to give equal time to our Christmastime favorites.

Religious Music: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, especially the last verse. I like Christmas songs that look forward as well as back. The last verse of Once in Royal David's City would be another example.

Secular Music: The piano music from A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Movie/TV--How the Grinch Stole Christmas. You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch would be another possible favorite music choice

Food: Rum Cake

Tradition: Children's Christmas Pageants. Children's Christmas Pageants are icons of the Incarnation.

Well thanks Rebel but my family can tell you that I am jus as likely as the next person to dwell on the negative..all in its own time.

I dunno. Christmas pageants are kinda scary. They need some new material. Or something.

The best Christmas pageant I ever attended, the tiny kiddos were dressed like little lambs -- they had ears made, somehow, from coat hangers and cotton balls, and they all wore white socks on their hands/front hooves, and they sang (screamed, actually, the way kids do) "Away in a Manger." And King Herod was this positively charming young man in a striped bathrobe who vogued his way through his part -- he reminded me of Steve Martin doing "King Tut."
