My favorite traditional carol

Peace on earth and mercy mild. God and sinner reconciled.

I love "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!" It makes me happy whenever I hear it. It encapsulates the religious side of the holiday for me: Peace, mercy and unconditional love.

It also reminds me of George Carlin's joke that it's really about listening for the LA Herald's softball team. And that always makes me smile, too.


  1. I really like Good Christian Men Rejoice, With Heart And Soul And Voice... (although I prefer Good Christians All Rejoice, instead of Men).

  2. I'm partial to O Holy Night and O Come O Come Emmanuel.
