After a brief bit of trolling on my Facebook wall over my throw away comment that “Christmas was over…” I decided that I needed to post this little clip as a reminder that Christmas is indeed not over until after the Feast of the Epiphany.
This clip is also in response to Fr Corrigan and Blog of a Country Priest who posted another version of the same song, which just made me remember this performance from this years Carols by Candlelight.
Each year Silvie Paladino performs at Melbourne’s Carols by Candlelight of Christmas eve. In what is a very secular Melbourne Christmas tradition, Silvie each year never fails to speak proudly about the true meaning of Christmas and this year between her two carols she said:
” This Christmas I pray that your hearts will be blessed with the love and peace that only God can give you at Christmas and Beyond”
As far as I saw, the only mention of God (outside the lyrics of a carols ofcourse).
She then proceeded to sing her next carol ‘O Holy Night’ which in my opinion was the best number of the night. It must pay to believe what you are singing.
