If I had to find one song that contains the meaning of Christmas for me, it would be this one. It is my favorite Christmas song. Each time I hear it, a rich blend of memories and important lessons come back to me, flowing with the beautiful notes of the introduction.
I can still feel the warmth of the chapel, still see the blue light on reflected from the deep snow outside. On a cold winter night, the chapel was cozy and safe. A safe shelter for a quirky, adolescent at the height of a raging ugly-duckling phase. An awkward adolescent who liked to sing instead of playing basketball (although he wasn't very good at either).
