‘And So This Is Christmas . . .’

Originally posted December 25, 2007

Well, the holiday is here, and we’re headed out of town to have dinner at my sister’s house. It’s about an hour away, and we’re scheduled to be there mid-morning, so I’m just going to post a cover version this early Christmas morning and leave things be there.

The cover version for this week is Sarah McLachlan’s take on John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” released a year ago as the first track on McLachlan’s Wintersong CD. I’ve long thought that McLachlan has one of the most arresting and beautiful voices I’ve ever heard, and it’s a joy to hear her take on one of my favorite songs of the season.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a Baker’s Dozen from a year not yet selected. I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and hope you all get to spend it with those you love!
