Little Drummer Boy

Perhaps my favorite Christmas carol and certainly my favorite Christmas story – even if it’s modern in origin…

Pentatonix’s Little Drummer Boy

H/T to Moe for sharing this modern, a capella version by Pentatonix.

“The Little Drummer Boy,” originally known as “Carol of the Drum” is quite modern as well. It was originally written in 1941 by Katherine Kennicott Davis, though the story it tells seems to based upon the 13th century legend of Le Jongleur de Notre Dame created or recorded by by Gautier de Coincy.

    I’d say that your secret’s safe with me but you just posted it for the world and eternity to see. 😆

    Been a while, sorry for my absence. I don’t know why I haven’t been here other than I so rarely make it this far down my blogroll before I burn out. I begin to think all this PC is way too much. I so love the fact you aren’t that at all!
