Christmas Is Coming

A Wreath of Carols was one of the books I selected in 7th grade when our English teacher, Mrs. Sappington, took orders for the Scholastic Book Service. Seems I’ve had a weakness for books (like some women have for shoes or purses) for quite a long time because I can remember narrowing down my choices to only 4 or 5 each month when we were given the new flyers.

Joe and I have literally worn the covers off of this book. It’s one of Joe’s favorite Christmas carol collections. He said the arrangements are simple but nice and good for singing as well as playing.

    One of my favorite Christmas memories is of our son, Judah, sitting on my lap and singing with me while I played “Good King Wenceslas” from this book That would be when he was about 5 or 6 years old: Circa 1980.
