Listen to the song “The Spirit of Christmas” by 11-year-old UK boy called Fynnjan with Aspergers Syndrome. It’s raising money to help special educational needs provision in mainstream schools for children with autism and Aspergers – primarily through the National Autistic Society and Nordoff Robbins music therapy. I’m very impressed of this!
Thanks for this suggestion Paul!

Little Drummer Boy (“The Little Drummer”) is an American Christmas song. It tells the story of a poor boy who can not afford it to make a gift to the newborn Jesus and thus plays with the consent of the Virgin Mary for him on his drum. Miraculously, the newborn seems to understand and smiles at him gratefully.

And a few words from Timothy Dudley-Smith:
A song was heard at Christmas
To wake the midnight sky:
A saviour’s birth, and peace on earth,
And praise to God on high.
The angels sang at Christmas
With all the hosts above,
And still we sing the newborn King
His glory and his love.
So I want to say thanks for all your visits so far(hope you could get an insight to the christmas music in other countries), and I wish all of you a Merry, Merry Christmas and peace, love and calm to everyone, wheather he’s Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu or something else!
