Merry Christmas!

On Christmases past I have often pointed out the differences between authentic Christianity and Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christianity.  This year Republicans have made such differences so obvious, that no further help from me is needed.  Therefore, my offering for the day is this graphic and a collection of Christmas Carols from one of my favorite groups, Celtic Woman.  At the end, I have also included one more personal favorite that they do not do.

O Holy Night

Carol of the Bells

The First Noel

O Come All Ye Faithful

Little Drummer Boy

Do You Hear What I Hear by the Cast of Glee

Have a very Merry Christmas, or whatever wonderful holiday you prefer.

  1. Thank you TC for the wonderful Christmas concert.  I am very fond of all of these.  I really had to think about the words to  ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ as I know it much better in Latin.

    Merry Christmas TC.  And to all a good night!

    • Adeste fidelis laeti triumphantes venite venite in Bethlehem?

      • Adeste, fideles,
        Laeti triumphantes,
        Venite, venite in Bethlehem.
        Natum videte
        Regem angelorum.
        ||: Venite adoremus, :||

        En grege relicto,
        Humiles ad cunas
        Vocati pastores approperant.
        Et nos ovanti
        Gradu festinemus;
        ||: Venite adoremus, :||

        Stella duce, Magi
        Christum adorantes
        Aurum, tus, et myrrham dant munera.
        Iesu infanti
        Corda praebeamus;
        ||: Venite adoremus. :||

        Cantet nunc hymnos
        Chorus angelorum;
        Cantet nunc aula caelestium:
        “Gloria, gloria
        In excelsis Deo!”
        ||: Venite adoremus, :||

        Deum de Deo,
        Lumen de Lumine,
        Gestant puellae viscera,
        Deum verum,
        Genitum non factum.
        ||: Venite adoremus. :||

        Aeterni Parentis
        splendorem aeternum,
        Velatum sub carne videbimus;
        Deum infantem
        pannis involutem.
        ||: Venite adoremus. :||

        Pro nobis egenum
        et foeno cubantem,
        Piis foveamus amplexibus.
        Sic nos amantem
        quis non redamaret?
        ||: Venite adoremus. :||

        Ergo qui natus
        die hodierna
        Iesu tibi sit gloria
        Patris aeterni
        Verbum caro factum
        ||: Venite adoremus. :||

        That be the one!

  2. And a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, and productuve new year to you, TomCat!

  3. Now why can’t they play those versions of Christmas carols in the malls, instead of the glop we’re subjected to?

    In case you didn’t know, Celtic Woman is performing in Portland in April — I may go see them.
