Video – This is Christmas to me

Ok, I love this song “This is Christmas to me” because it is a simplistic view of Christmas. Though I like all the more spiritual old hymns like O Come All Ye Faithful, Hark the Herald, O Holy Night and those worshipping Christ, sometimes, it is good for us Christians to remember that it is a blessing that so many people, regardless of their faiths, in the world are celebrating Christmas with gifts giving and spreading of good will. So, let’s not push it too hard by reminding each other that Christmas is about Christ. A Christian will know that without needing another Christian to remind him/her.

The video was taken by my son while the bunch of them had to wait for me in church during my choir. It takes a while for the video to download, click play and then, pause and hope it won’t take too long for you to see our choir practice.

Let’s look at these beautiful lyrics which I typed (cos I can’t find an online version):
(Bart of Angie&Bart is playing the piano)

What is Christmas?
Is it Santa Claus and presents?
Is it pumpkin pie and phesants?
Is it tinsel on the tree?

What is Christmas?
Is it candlelight and snowflakes?
Is it candy canes and cupcakes?
Is it the same for you and me?

Wherever I am, wherever you are
Let us make a wish upon the Christmas star

that there be
hope in every heart
love in every home
peace in every land
neighbours hand in hand
a surprise in every stocking
a gift under every tree

This is Christmas to me

What is Christmas?
Is it starry skies at midnight?
Is it carols by the firelight?
Is it friends and family?

What is Christmas?
Is it Mary’s little baby?
Is it quite all right that maybe
It’s not the same for you and me?

(repeat italic)

And I am so proud of this pic.


My church handymen put up this three-storey high Christmas lights. It is no easy task to get the scaffolding up, measure and draw the giant shape, drill the holes and tie the lights etc etc. But through great co-operation, they did it within a few hours today. And the most heartwarming thing is my atm is somewhere up there on the second floor height helping a bit. That to me is the most significant part of Christmas because non-Catholics like him are so into doing things for Christmas.
