"Oh Holy Night" -- A beautiful and powerful song whether or not one is a believer
Agreed. It's odd - I'm atheist, but I love Christmas music. I play the organ, and back when I lived in a house, I'd play this one, Do You Hear What I Hear?, and a whole bunch of others. I'd really crank up the volume and lose myself in it. My family never minded, which was fortunate.
I'm the same; an atheist who loves Christmas music, even the highly religious stuff. Although I must admit that I hate
"Do You Hear What I Hear"! That song just goes on and on and on for-fucking-ever!
Other traditional songs I'm very fond of are "Good King Wenceslas" and "O, Come All Ye Faithful." Like you, I love to play Christmas Carols, though I do so on a cello.
