Christmas Pixie Dust

People, look east. The time is near
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the guest, is on the way.

I absolutely love Christmas and Advent music, so to celebrate the festive season this year I thought I'd talk my little brother Dart into being my guitarist and share some of my favorites!  People Look East by Eleanor Farjeon is just like poetry.  Each verse seems more beautiful than the last:

Stars, keep the watch. When night is dim
One more light the bowl shall brim,
Shining beyond the frosty weather,
Bright as sun and moon together.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the star, is on the way.

The second song Dart and I did is something sweet. ;) How is that Christmas Cookies by George Strait doesn't get played more on the radio?  It's SO PERFECT.  And making the video gave me the perfect excuse for plenty of baking!

One last video in case you missed it...I shared a "haul" of beautiful Christmas Children's picture books: click above to watch!

Wishing everyone a blessed and joyful holiday!
