The 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ......CAROLS -Angels we have heard on high

Angels We Have Heard on High

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.


Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?


Come to Bethlehem and see
Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.


See Him in a manger laid,
Whom the choirs of angels praise;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While our hearts in love we raise.


Angels we have heard on high is the announcing praise of the newborn King.  Its a song that has withstood the test of time. 

In many homes, angels are a staple in the Christmas decorations.  They deck the halls and adorn the trees.  So this year, keeping with my own homemade tradition, am making angels to give to friends and family.  Only my angels are a bit different....

Here they are decorating my little tree...

and up close .....

These little gals are tampon angels..yep, you read correctly.  TAMPON ANGELS.  I'm sure they'll add some fun and humor to our Christmas gatherings!!
