Christmas Journal Entry #14
The LO shows the lyrics of "Driving home for Christmas" and also sheet music for some of the German Carols I can remember.
I love Christmas Carols, the more pop-culture songs and I have several CDs which are playing every December.
I am surprised how many Christmas Carols from Germany are still saved in my brain - I made an ad-hoc list and came up with the following: "Alle Jahre wieder", "Am Weihnachtsbaume die Lichter brennen", "Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen", "Fröhliche Weihnacht überall", Ihr Kinderlein kommet", "Kling, Glöckchen, klingeling", "Kommet, Ihr Hirten", "Lasst uns froh und munter sein", "Leise rieselt der Schnee", "Macht hoch die Tür, die Tor' macht weit", Morgen, Kinder, wird's was geben", "Morgen kommt der Weihnachtsmann", "Oh, Du fröhliche", "Oh Tannenbaum", "Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht", "Süsser die Glocken nie klingen" & "Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her". That's 17 carols. I think I can count the English ones I know on one hand ... will have to change that!!
My absolute favourite Christmas Song, however, is "Driving home for Christmas" by Chris Rea. Followed by "Last Christmas" by Wham.
