'O Holy Night,' 'Silent Night' top Christmas hymn favorites
Many meaningful Christmas songs were submitted when The Catholic Post asked readers for their favorites, but in the end it was two about the night when Christ was born that proved to be the most popular.
“O Holy Night” was mentioned most often, with “Silent Night” coming in second. Other carols that will be heard with joy at Masses during the Christmas Season are “Angels We Have Heard on High,” “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” and “O Little Town of Bethlehem.”
Barbara Bunch of St. Patrick Church of Merna in Bloomington, however, made a pitch to continue to wait a few more days by nominating a treasured Advent hymn, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.”
