Advent Calendar Blog Hop

As it is the 21st December (finally!) in the UK, it is my turn to post in Jo's amazing Advent Calendar Blog Hop.

Jo has posed us a question - what is my favourite Christmas song? I must admit that I have really struggled with an answer! I have tried to decide between classics like Wizzard's 'I wish it could be Christmas', Band Aid, and more traditional songs like '12 Days of Christmas'.

But I think my favourite has to be Hark the Herald Angels Sing. Mainly because I was in a choir until the age of 18, and it was such fun to sing. Especially the descant in the last verse - I remember being very proud when I was able to hit all those high notes! Not something I can do anymore, particularly as my voice has decided it wants to take a holiday this week. Hopefully this link will take you to the song.

I bizarrely don't have much Christmas stitching, but the one I do have I am incredibly proud of. It is the advent calendar I made myself this year (and a rather apt choice for an Advent Calendar blog hop!)


I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas, or festive break

Thanks for taking part in the Advent Calendar Blog Hop with the most appropriate picture too!
Lovely choice of song, I was in the choir at school but by the time I reached High School I was relegated to Lighting as quite frankly, I can't carry a tune in a bucket!
I would love to be able to sing though.

Your advent calendar is beautiful and looks fab all filled up. I like the traditional hymns for Christmas but I love Santa Baby, the lyrics are great and it always reminds me of the old movie stars.

An advent for the advent hop; it looks awesome! I tend to like the traditional hymns as well though I could never hit the high notes (properly :D) in Hark the Herald Angels Sing haha.

Bethan, I love your advent calendar! And especially the little chocolates!
Wasn’t it hard to choose one tune to name!
I love Jo’s description..... “couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket”! I’m in that club too! But I did like singing carols in school, but I wasn’t in any choir!
Happy Christmas!
Hugs,
