The Carols of Christmas

The Carols of Christmas

By Michael Young
Welcome to the Carols of Christmas. Each day leading up to Christmas, I talk about a particular Christmas carol, explaining some of the history and background behind the carol, and then finally, I will sing a verse of it for you. Some will be familiar and some probably not, but they all point us toward the true reason for the season: our Savior Jesus Christ.
