Christmas Tree Close Up

Not able or wanting to get a traditional Christmas Tree we decided on a more local tree – a Palm in place of a Spruce. Simply decorated in LED lights I love the way the fronds cast shadows on the wall as the lights illuminate the branches.

Songs of Christmas: Day 1 – O Little Town of Bethlehem

Each year I start playing Christmas Music from the start of December.

Each day until Christmas (in addition to my other posts) I will post a link to a video of one of the Christmas tunes on my iPod. Some will be carols, others pop songs. Here is my first offering:

Day 1

Jars of Clay : O Little Town of Bethlehem

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs of recent years – I like because it is such a different rendition to the usual version of the Carol.
