Episode 28 – Silent Night

Well, I decided to do a special holiday episode for December and to hold everyone over until the first of the year when I start with season 2.

In this episode, I take a look at the story of the Christmas Carol “Silent Night” and finish off with a reading of the English translation of the original text as well as a reading of what is traditionally sung in regards to the carol.
