I…..errrr…..I’m……I’m not that keen on Christmas Carols. There..I said it.
I don’t know if it is the likelihood of encountering a thee or thy. I don’t know if it is the pain involved in hitting the notes. But I seem to switch off during Carols.
It leads me into a question. Why does it seem that there are no new Christmas worship songs? And if there were any would they be accepted? When it comes to Advent I want to be singing songs of worship. There are loads of very good modern songs around The Passion and Easter but it seems that when we talk about Christmas we talk about a stable and some still clear skies.
Has anyone come across any good modern Christmas praise songs they can recommend??

Well at least that’s what the adverts on tv tell me. It seems that it is now officially the countdown to present opening day (I guess that is the PC term for Christmas day now) and we can all expect to go into the shops with a big smile on our faces and find the perfect gifts while snowmen and fairy lights go before us making everyone merry.
Before I disappear off into my sarcastic rant I’ll leave you with a question.
What would you like Christmas to look like and what inspired your answer?
