Merry Christmas! I have been wrapping presents and singing Christmas Carols.
Did you know that people have been singing Christmas Carols for hundreds of years? The very first Christmas songs were sung in Rome. Rome is in Italy. I cannot believe that people have been singing Christmas Carols for so long.
It makes me so happy to hear Christmas Carols. And it reminds me of a story.
Do you know what a choir is? A choir is a group of people who sing together. I love to listen to a choir when they are singing Christmas Carols. Would you like to hear about how the very first North Pole Choir was formed?
There once was an elf. It was so long ago that I forget his name. He loved to sing. He was a terrible singer. He would sing all day long. He would sing all night long. The other elves would shout:
He would sing in the kitchen, and he would sing in the bathroom. He would sing when he was outside, and he would sing when he was inside. He would sing when he was wide awake, and he would sing when he was sleepy. The other elves would shout:
It got too much for some of the elves. They found the singing elf.
Christmas Carols or Christmas craziness?
“You should sing like this,” said one elf, and he sang a nice high-pitched melodic tune.
“No, you should sing like this,” said another elf, and she sang a deep musical song.
“No, no, no. You should sing like this,” said another elf, and he sang a jolly song that made you want to smile and laugh.
“No, no, no, no, no, no, no. You should sing like this,” said another, and she sang a beautifully sad song which made you want to cry.
“Nooooooooooooooooooooooo. You should sing like this,” said another. He jumped up and down and made noises with his voice.
The singing elf listened to them. Each song was brilliant and beautiful. Each singer was graceful and talented. There was one problem. When they all sang together, they sounded horrible. The singing elf wanted to shout at them to shut up. Instead, he joined in the singing. Well, what do you know? That song became the most beautiful Christmas carol you have ever heard. The singing elf was the missing piece. When they all sang together, they were amazing.
That is how the first North Pole choir came to be.
