11th Day of Christmas - The First Noel & Don't Touch That Tree

Merry Christmas!  Today is the 11th Day of Christmas. And although tomorrow is the last of the Twelve Days of Christmas, the formal Christmas Season continues for another week, until the Baptist of the Lord next Sunday. So keep the Christmas candles burning, and don't do anything to that tree just yet!


"The Christmas Tree" by Albert Chevellier Tayler

To help keep the Christmas Spirit lively, I'm posting a clip of little Jackie Evancho singing "The First Noel".  She was only 10 years old when the video was made; she is now an older and wiser 15.  May you continue to have a blessed Christmas and, of course, a very happy new year.
