Memories…memories. Christmas time brings back unforgettable memories. In the early 1970’s, I had the opportunity to go from house to house singing Christmas Carols. Thank goodness it was in Mississippi because we didn’t have to walk around in cold weather or the snow. The caroling was an assignment associated with a college Spanish class. So, we sang all of the Christmas Carols in Spanish with our Spanish teacher, Senor Brooks watching our lips to make sure that our words were fluently enunciated! My favorite Christmas carol of all times has always been “Silent Night.” My favorite version is the rendition by The Temptations. Here goes “Silent Night” in Spanish. On this joyous Christmas eve, let’s go caroling even if it’s in our homes! Sing along with me!
Noche de paz, noche de amor,
Todo duerme en derredor.
Entre sus astros que esparcen su luz
Bella anunciando al niñito Jesús
Brilla la estrella de paz
Brilla la estrella de paz

This Christmas eve, remember that tomorrow, Christmas Day, “Christ, our Savior was born!”
