This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Christmas Carol or Christmas Song (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I really like the song from The Snowman, 'I'm walking in the air'.  If you're not already singing it, then click on the link and see the flying scene with the boy and his snowman!

My favourite Christmas/ seasonal song is Let it snow.
I LOVE snow when I first get up in the morning after it's snowed and there are no footprints or marks in the snow that first few minutes and then think OH NO I have to go to work in that! DOH!


One of my favorite Christmas songs is 'Deck the Halls'.  I loved singing the fa-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la part of the song when I was a kiddo, for that matter, I still like singing it, it's just so fun!


One of my favourite carols is 'O Christmas tree' or in German 'O Tannenbaum'.
I have fond memories of learning this at school in German and thinking how clever I was!


My favorite Christmas carol or song is "Let It Snow." It reminds me of when we were young and my Dad putting on our Bing Cosby records and decorating the tree, getting things set up for Santa!

I like Oh, Holy night, it just reminds me of the warm cozy Christmas nights.


The Christmas song that means most to me is Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.
 As a girl my Dad played a Johnny Mathis Christmas LP (remember those??) and
he lines " Through the years we all will be together, if the fates allow, So hang a shining star upon the highest bough, And have yourself a Merry Little Christmas now" always do it for me and remind me of times so sadly missed.

Anyway here she is, hanging her shining star!!


For me it's a song rather than a carol, and it is a bittersweet one this year as Greg Lake has just passed away.  "I Believe In Father Christmas".  I have loved this ever since it was released, and the first hearing of it always reminds me of how close to Christmas we are.  The words are quite thought provoking.


**coming soon**

Have yourself a merry little Christmas is my favorite Christmas song. It's a beautiful song. It reminds me of the older days when the weather was cold and inside it was warm and cosy. And watching all the old Christmas movies. Nostalgia.......

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Christmas Carol (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
