It is the night of the Christmas trees and pie

December 18

Don't forget in wintry weather all your little friends with feathers.

The Carpenters: O Holy Night
John Williams: O Holy Night

"O Holy Night" is my absolute favorite Christmas song, but I don't have an awful lot to say about it. There's something about the chord changes in this song that feel more like Christmas than any number of silly novelty songs ever will.

Here are two of my favorite versions of the song--a choral version from the movie Home Alone and an instrumental version performed by The Carpenters.
