Yes, I understand it is completely extra-biblical and we have not a shred of evidence for it and yes, I know that the Christmas celebration went on for hundreds of years without it. I still love it.
I love it on two levels. On one level, it is a very good message, not just about the birth of Christ (always a very god message) but also about the power of giving what one has. On the other level, I love the song as written: it has a very distinctive beat, one that is instantly recognizable.
When driving home a few days ago, I suddenly heard a version I had not heard before. It took me a bit of searching to find it turns - turns out it is For King and Country's live version. I enjoyed it so much, I thought I would share.
