The "War On Christmas" complainers spend all of Advent complaining about how people are rejecting Christmas. But once Christmas actually starts, they forget all about it and turn their short little attention spans to New Years.

In the meantime it's still Christmas, and in honor of that fact, here's a video of one of the best Christmas carols being sung by one of the best gospel singers ever. This song is not about snow or Santa or anything tangible, this song is about faith and joy and Christmas. (The lyrics are in the comments.)

Go Tell It On the Mountain - Mahalia Jackson

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

They found my Lord Savior
Was laying in a manger
Came down from Glory
To save this world from sin

Hallelujah!

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

The shepherd kept watching
O’er the wandering flock
By night behold down from heaven
Shine a holy light

Let us praise him!

Go, tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

My favorite hymn.  Our church ends every Christmas Mass with it.  My kids sang it in choir every year.  Thank you for keeping the Christmas spirit alive.  Wishing you all goods things for the New Year.
