Merry Christmas to All!
Stille Nacht (The original Silent Night – in German)
Click here to see both English and German lyrics side by side. German was the language of most of my husband’s ancestor’s. Unfortunately, the language and perhaps many of the food and customs have been lost.
Oiche Chiuin (Silent Night) by Enya
This was cool. I know, if I go back far enough, my ancestors spoke Gaelic. I just hope that soon I can find their exact origins. Must get back to working on this branch!
Silent Night in English sung by Bing Crosby
It doesn’t get much better than listening to Bing Crosby sing “Silent Night”, unless you’re singing “Silent Night” while doing the annual Christmas Light car tour and you find out that your seven-year-old granddaughter learned the sign language for the song in school. Now, that’s really cool.
Have a Very Merry Christmas! Blessings, Sherry
