Sing!

And in that vicinity there were shepherds living [out under the open sky] in the field, watching [in shifts] over their flock by night.

And behold, an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the glory of the Lord flashed and shone all about them, and they were terribly frightened.

10 But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people.

11 For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior, Who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord!(B)

12 And this will be a sign for you [by which you will recognize Him]: you will find [[c]after searching] a Baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.(C)

13 Then suddenly there appeared with the angel an army of the troops of heaven ([d]a heavenly knighthood), praising God and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest [heaven], and on earth peace among men with whom He is well pleased [[e]men of goodwill, of His favor].-Luke 2:8-14

The birth of Jesus was celebrated in song. Glory to God in the highest.

When our newbies had their first Christmas, we introduced them to Christmas carols. They didn’t know the words or the tune, so we bought a book and sang a carol a night. The great thing about singing as a family, we don’t have to be good at it. We are no Von Trapp family, just a bunch of regular people with average voices singing about Christmas.
