The new poll is up! I'm asking you all, my readers, what type of crazy thing would you like to see on this blog. Of course, I've given you limited choices because I only received 81 votes for my Christmas Carol poll.

By the way, "What Child is This" is the official Christmas Carol of this blog because you all voted for it. Ok, 19 out of 81 of you voted for it.

What Child Is This
By: William C. Dix

What child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary?s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the king,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary!

Why lies he is such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear; for sinners here
The silent word is pleading.
Nails, spear shall pierce him through,
The cross he borne for me, for you;
Hail, hail the word made flesh,
The babe, the son of Mary!

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh;
Come, peasant, king, to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings;
Let loving hearts enthrone him.
Raise, raise the song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby;
Joy, joy, for Christ is born,
The babe, the son of Mary!
