Advent Day 5:
The Shepherds
"And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified."
-Luke 2:8-9

Traditional: "The First Noel"

Specialty Song:

If you've seen the movie How The Grinch Stole Christmas, you know that this song was written for that movie. About how the grinch hated Christmas, but then at the end of the movie (spoiler alert!), how he found it again in the hearts of the townspeople of Whoville. 
This song can relate to a lot of people though. How they forget about family, Jesus, the joy, etc. of Christmas because they are so stressed about the other things. They lose sight of the true Christmas. But when you hear this song, and really listen to the lyrics, you realize that Christmas really can be the "most wonderful time of the year." Once you figure out what's important to you; once you figure out one really great thing about Christmas, you realize,
"Christmas is so much more!"

Have you figured it out yet? The "specialty" Christmas song for today is...

"Where Are You Christmas"
"Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."
-The Grinch
