I remember as a child looking forward to hearing Christmas songs on TV. Among my favorites were Silent Night, Hark the Harold Angels Sing and O' Holy Night. The Christmas music in those days were not the modern carols of today. My favorite carol at the time was probably O' Little Town of Bethlehem. I was probably drawn to it because I loved babies, loved reading the Christmas story and because I could relate to being in the stable with the animals all around.
Then, in 1957, I heard a song that I had never heard before. I sat on the floor and listened as the words drifted from the old radio that sat on the shelf above the couch. The name of the song was Mary's Boy Child and it was sung by Harry Belafonte. Today, I heard the song on the radio and it triggered this memory. Since I'm still far behind in all my Christmas preparations and am still fighting this virus, I am making this a short post. Enjoy! ~Blessings, Mary!
