Prompted by this blog post, I thought I would have a go at Blog Carolling.

Blog Caroling

My favourite Christmas Carol is “O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree”, but what I didn’t know was how many versions of the words there were!

The version I grew up singing went as follows:-

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are thy branches!
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are thy branches!
beauty green will always grow
Through summer sun and winter snow
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
How lovely are thy branches!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
How fragrant are your branches!
When decked with candles once a year
You fill our hearts with Yuletide cheer.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
You are the tree most loved!
How often you give us delight
In brightly shining Christmas light!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
Your beauty green will teach me
That hope and love will ever be
The way to joy and peace for me.

But, as evident by the difficulty I had in finding a video of someone singing the version I knew, and then finally confirmed by this page, there are lots and lots of different versions of it.

To finish, here’s a cat video celebrating my favourite Christmas Carol.

Merry Christmas!
