 "O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us.
They are green when summer days are bright;
They are green when winter snow is white.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us!"
 -- Ernst Anschutz (German Poet)

This is one of my favorite songs to play on the piano. Whether it's an easy version or a jazzy one to play, I love listening to everyone join in and sing along.  It is so very cool that this poet captured the tradition of bringing an evergreen into one's house to celebrate this wonderful season.


Best,
LadyD
