Good Sunday Morning!
I love music and this version of
Oh Little Town of Bethlehem
is really beautiful.
and The First Noel
I guess you can spell it Noel or Nowell. I didn't know there was more than one way to spell it.
I did a little research and here is an excerpt from what I read.
The word “Nowell” is indeed an Anglicized version of the French word for Christmas, “Noel,” he says. However, all historical evidence indicates that the song emerged from the remote Cornwall region of southwest England in the mid 16th century. Whether the name was changed by a Francophile publisher or just a lazy typesetter seeking a shorter word is unclear, but sometime between 1870 and the early 20th century, the switch was made. Regardless of how or why it happened, the new title stuck and confusion over the birthplace of this much beloved carol has reigned ever since.
I hope you have a blessed Sunday and a beautiful week ahead!
December is here and I know we're all in the countdown mode for Christmas.
Remember the reason for the season!
