Any favorite Christmas songs from around the world?
My favorite Christmas hymn in Spanish is "Noche de Luz" (Silent Night)
Noche de luz, noche de paz;
Reina ya gran solaz
Do el niño dormido está,
Mensajero del Dios de verdad.
Duerme, niño, en paz;
Duerme, niño, en paz.
Because of my mission I'm certainly fond of the Polish Christmas songs. There are a lot of original Polish Christmas songs, but my favorite is probably "W Żłobie Leży", which is the tune that "Infant Holy, Infant Lowly" and "Stars Were Gleaming" are sung to.
Other than that I really like "Lulajże Jezuniu".
Keep it real,
Thanks to my Germany-loving dad, "Kling, Glöckchen, Klingelingeling." It's just so bright and happy.
Dear Trickster Rabbit,
"The Virgin Mary Had A Baby Boy," which came from the West Indies (possibly Trinidad).
IS IT NOT GROOVY?!

I absolutely love "Es ist ein Ros entsprungen." ("Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming") It's originally German, and I became familiar with it on my mission since it's in the Swedish hymnbook. It's absolutely captivating.
