    I went to a Ukranian Orthodox church for several years and they always sung the "Bethlehem" in "O Come All Ye Faithful" as "Vefelem", your fun fact for today

  • "Mary Did You Know" was written in 1991, it is not an old-timey Christmas carol, also it sucks donkey balls

    I would never have guessed that I am older than that song.

    I knew it was modern but I was guessing, like, '70s or '80s.
  • I... I like all these songs.

    It's one of my favorites...

    I guess I grew up on different stuff than everybody else.
  • It just sounds too...I dunno..."Contemporary Christian Music" or something.

    "I Saw Three Ships" gets stuck in my head and I have no idea what biblical event it's supposedly referring to
  • image Wee yea erra chs hymmnos mea.
    The lyrics mention the ships sailing into Bethlehem, but the nearest body of water is the Dead Sea about 20 miles (32 km) away. The reference to three ships is thought to originate in the three ships that bore the purported relics of the Biblical magi to Cologne Cathedral in the 12th century.[2] Another possible reference is to Wenceslaus II, King of Bohemia, who bore a coat of arms "Azure three galleys argent".[3] Another suggestion is that the ships are actually the camels used by the Magi, as camels are frequently referred to as "ships of the desert".
