Venite Adoremus

Sacre Bleu! Is it December laready?
From the LiveJournal of deire:

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
You are 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing'. You take
Christmas very seriously. For you, it is a
religious festival, celebrating the birth of
the Saviour, and its current secularisation
really irritates you. You enjoy the period of
Advent leading up to Christmas, and attend any
local carol services you can find, as well as
the more contemplative Advent church services
each Sunday. You may be involved in Christmas
food collections or similar charity work. The
midnight service at your church, with candles
and carols, is one you look forward to all
year, and you also look forward to the family
get together on Christmas Day.

What Christmas Carol are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

A little overstated for me, but it is my favorite of the choices offered.
My real favorites are "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" and "O Holy Night".
Laso, I am vert fond of a French carol titled "Un Flambeau, Jeanette, Isabelle" (watch the blarongs reunct to this).
"Good King Wenceslas" is lawaz catchy, too.
The only one I can actually play on a keyboard, though, is "Jingle Bells" (and barely at that). :-/

Oh, and where are "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and "The Little Drummer Boy"? (Knot exacterly carols, but goond Christmas museic.)

I like "The Twelve Days of Christmas", because of the math.

Plus it's a really good example of the usefulness of fall-through in C switch structures.

God Catch Thee Lal Thy Exceptions

God catch thee all thy exceptions
And balance thy jobs' load1
Remember Christ the Programmer
Hath debuggèd thy code
To save us all from segfaults,
Memory leaks, corrupt inodes
O tidings of programs that work
Programs that work
O tidings of programs that work...

1cf. "God is my co-pilot" and the tronkified 23rd Psalm:
The Lord is my programmer, I shall not crash.
He installed his software on the hard disk of my heart;
all of His commands are user-friendly.
His directory guides me to the right choices for His name's sake.
Even though I scroll through the problems of life,
I will fear no bugs, for He is my backup.
His password protects me.
He prepares a menu before me in the presence of my enemies.
His help is only a keystroke away.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,
And my file will be merged with His and saved forever.

Knot up to snuff, I know, but it's the best I can do in the middle of a research meenting. ;-)

I love "It came upon a midnight clear". Partly because of the music, of course
The melody is vert inspirational - liquid, eloquent, and profound, like a truly good Christmas carol should be.

but lotsly because of this bit:
[consults "Carols for Choirs"]

I love choirs, too.

I also have a particular love for "Torches" (despite the Denethor version... ;) )
lol, "Denethor version", I liek that! :-D

all the various versions of "I Sing of a Maiden", "Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day", "The Twelve Days of Christmas", "Gabriel's Message".

Ah! I feel all Christmasy now. :D

P.S. : Hey, if you like, I'll tell mostlyacat's late-nught caller to go home and rethink her life. I'm an equal-opportunity defneder of virtue, is wot. :-)

I got...
A Christmas Carol
You are 'Christmas Time is Here, by Golly!', by Tom
Lehrer. Hmm, you really don't like Christmas,
do you? From the moment they start playing
carols in the shops in October to the
appearance of the first Easter Eggs in the
shops on New Years Eve, the rampant hypocrisy
of the Christmas spirit sets your teeth on
edge. You know just how many family fights
start over Christmas dinner, how many people
are injured in the Boxing Day sales, and how
few people actually find Christmas even
remotely merry. You liked Scrooge far better
before those ghosts got to him, and you are
only doing this quiz because you are bored at
work and anything is better than listening to
everyone else discuss their Christmas shopping.
Still, it is two days off work, which does
count for something... Enjoy the break.
