thoughts//THE 12 DAYS OF (KATHRYN'S FAVORITE) CHRISTMAS (SONGS): DAY 2

BY KATHRYN GARVIN



On the 2nd day of Christmas, this is my favorite song:

O, Holy Night by Glee, or anyone really.

First, I'd like to say that the Glee version of this song is good, and also one of the two versions I have on my computer. But it's less about who sings it and more about the song in terms of why this is number two. It's a staple for Christmas. Can you call anything a Christmas concert or service or whatever if you don't have someone belting "O, Holy Night"? I think my only beef with this song is that it's always a solo. Why can't we all sing along? It's a good song with a good message.

One of the reasons why this is one of my favorite Christmas songs is because I like the way my voice sounds when I sing it. I'm not afraid to admit to you all that I'm vain like that. I've been listening to it in the car a lot, perfecting every note, just in case any church needs me to fill in on Christmas Eve. Or in case they wanted me, someone with a history degree, to sing it instead of someone who has a degree in vocal performance or SOMETHING. Because why not? I guess it's good that I have such a healthy sense of worth. But, besides liking the way my voice sounds, it's a beautiful song with a great message. And since so many different artists have covered it, there's a good chance that you can find a version that suits your tastes.

So a very Merry Christmas from me and this picture of Rachel Berry singing "O, Holy Night" (according to the internet).
