Carol of the Bells

Here's a video of Carol of the Bells with some nice bird photos in the middle.

Hark how the bells, sweet silver bells, all seem to say, throw cares away Christmas is here,bringing good cheer, to young and old,meek and the bold, Oh how they pound, raising the sound, o'er hill and dale, telling their tale, Gaily they ring while people sing songs of good cheer, Christmas is here, Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas, Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas, On on they send , on without end, their joyful tone to every home Dong Ding dong ding, dong Dong
The Carol of the Bells lyrics were added to the original folk music from the Ukraine by Peter Wilhousky. The lyrics and words to this popular Christmas song celebrate the festive season and its traditions such as the pealing of church bells at Christmas and of the singing of Christmas Carols - caroling. The original lyrics to the song was entitled Shchedryk meaning bountiful and were traditionally sang to celebrate the New Year.
