|"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.
(please also see HERE for how the personal suffering of poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow led to the moving song, "I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day")
