O Come, O Come Emmanuel

A couple years ago I composed this arrangement of O Come, O Come Emmanuel for my daughter Jillian and niece Callie to perform with me in church. This has always been one of my favorite Christmas songs. It has such a haunting melody. I enjoyed setting it to some beautiful winter photography I obtained through MorgueFile.com.

Twas the Night Before Christmas Southern Style

In today’s Crazy Christmas Blowout video, my Southern sons, friends and colleagues from across the South join me for a recitation of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

What do you think, is the Southern accent going extinct? None of my kids have one… too much TV watching, I suppose.

Ginger Crinkles a la Julia Child

It’s Back! My Crazy Christmas Blowout! And I’m kicking it off with my favorite Christmas cookie recipe – Ginger Crinkles. I’m making a batch to take to a church Christmas party and thought I’d pull out my Julia Child imitation to show you how it’s done…

Ginger Crinkles

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup shortening (or cooking oil)
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg

Stir together the first 6 ingredients. Combine the remaining ingredients and beat well. Add dry ingredients to beaten mixture, beating well. Form 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in 375 degree oven about 10 minutes. Makes 48

Twas the Night Before Christmas Southern Style

For today’s Crazy Christmas Challenge I’ve put together a group of my friends to collaborate with me and my son on a recitation of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” Southern Style.

Did you know all Southern accents aren’t the same? Each region of the South has its own unique dialect. This video depicts accents from

Tennessee – yours truly
Northwest Georgia – Elijah Pehrson
Kentucky – Lisa Rae Preston
Virginia – Laura West
South Carolina – Lois Hardeman
Atlanta – Ellen Britt

Actually, I believe the Southern accent is an endangered species. As you listen to my son, Elijah, you’ll see he has very little Southern accent. At least I don’t notice it. Do you?
