"And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn......And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."

"Now it came to pass that when Nephi, the son of Nephi, saw this wickedness of his people, his heart was exceedingly sorrowful.... And it came to pass that he cried mightily unto the Lord all that day; and behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him, saying: Lift up your head and be of good cheer; for behold, the time is at hand, and on this night shall the sign be given, and on the morrow come I into the world.... And behold, the time is at hand, and this night shall the sign be given."

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Away_in_a_Manger

Of the 41 settings listed by Richard S. Hill in his article entitled "Not so far away in a Manger, forty-one settings of an American carol," published in the Music Library Association Notes (second series) III, no. 1 for December 1945,[3] the one most commonly printed in the U.S. is Murray's, which is typically given the name "Mueller." The first half of the melody is identical to the beginning of the second theme of Waltz #4, transposed down a fourth, in G'schichten aus dem Wienerwald, Op. 325 by Johann Strauss Jr., composed 19 years earlier.[8]

"Away in a Manger" is a Christmas carol first published in 1885 in Philadelphia and used widely throughout the English-speaking world. In Britain it is one of the most popular carols, a 1996 Gallup Poll ranking it joint second.[1]

The song was first published with two verses in an Evangelical Lutheran Sunday School collection, Little Children's Book for Schools and Families (1885), where it simply bore the title "Away in a Manger" and was set to a tune called "St. Kilda," credited to J.E. Clark.[2]

For many years the text was credited to the German Protestant reformer Martin Luther. Research has shown, however, that this is nothing more than a fable.[3] In the book Dainty songs for little lads and lasses for use in the kindergarten, school and home, by James R. Murray,[4] (Cincinnati, The John Church Co., 1887) it bears the title "Luther's Cradle Hymn" and the note, "Composed by Martin Luther for his children, and still sung by German mothers to their little ones."[5] A possible reason for the spurious attribution to Luther is that the 400th anniversary of his birth was in 1883. The words were either based on a poem written for this anniversary or were credited to Luther as a clever marketing gimmick.[6] This song has never been found in Luther's works.

The third stanza, "Be near me, Lord Jesus" was first printed in Gabriel's Vineyard Songs (1892), where it appeared with a tune by Charles H. Gabriel (simply marked "C"), thus these words are probably by Gabriel. Gabriel credited the entire text to Luther and gave it the title "Cradle Song." This verse is sometimes attributed to Dr. John McFarland, but since the popular story dates his contribution to 1904 (postdating the 1892 printing by 12 years), his contribution is highly questionable.[7]

The tune "Cradle Song" was written by William J. Kirkpatrick for the musical Around the World with Christmas (1895) and is an adaptation of the melody originally composed in 1837 by Jonathan E. Spilman to "Sweet Afton". One example is Sergio Franchi, who covered it on his Billboard Top 40 RCA Victor album, The Heart of Christmas.[9] Thus, there are two different melodies for "Away In A Manger". Each setting has a harmony version for S, A, T, B.

The two tunes actually fit together quite well. An arrangement by Christopher Erskine combining both settings (harmony), first heard in 1996 in Canberra at the annual pair of joint Carol Services in Manuka, performed by the choirs of St Paul's Church (Anglican) and St Christopher's Cathedral (Roman Catholic). In this version the Kirkpatrick setting is sung by one choir, and the Murray setting by the other choir, alternating through the first two verses. Both settings are sung together for the third verse.

A very popular arrangement in Britain and most other English-speaking countries, is Sir David Willcocks' version of the carol. This version is often performed by the English choirs.

German eurodance group Cascada recorded a version for their 2012 Christmas album, It's Christmas Time.

BONUS CHRISTMAS TREAT:

      From Dimples Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 12/21/12 (but reserved for this day) - Adventure with Grandma: Something She Needed":
 

Carol,

This is about my mother's mother - a true story, you may print it if you wish !

Dimples
 

Something She Needed

From since I can remember, every visit to Nannie's was a visit to Mr. Levy's Five & Dime. Nannie lived in Highland Park, a suburb of Richmond, Va. And Mr. Levy's Five & Dime was one of my favorite places to go when I visited !

Mr. Levy was a small Jewish man with a heart big enough for all the children in the world. He would always smile and twist his fingers softly through my white-blond curls, ask about my health, ("Fine") and my mom and dad. (They are fine too," I would say softly !)

Then Nannie and Mr. Levy would chat while I looked around his giant store. Some of the counters were too tall for me to see everything, but I got to see all the things that were for a little girl.
Nannie had given me a dime to spend, and it always took me a while to make my decision between the two of my most favorite things of the day. I would go from one to another and after about ten minutes I would settle on my very favorite and take it to the cash register to Mrs. Levy. She would push buttons and make the drawer open and the bell ring on the cash register as she took my dime and dropped it in the tray, then put my choice in a bag and handed it to me just like she did the grownups. She could never resist putting her soft hand on my cheek...sometimes it lingered longer than others, and she would always push back my curls from my face. Her smile was dazzling !

When Christmastime came and I went to Richmond to visit Nannie, my dad had given me two dollars to bUy a gift for my Nannie. I was excited, I had never bought a gift for anyone before, Daddy had said to buy her something that she needed. We waved to my parents when they left to go back to Newport News; they would be back in three days to pick me up and take me home again, just in time for Christmas.

Nannie and I would empty my suitcase, and I would sit at her vanity with the big round mirror, and put on a little powder and brush my hair...we were going to Mr. Levy's store and I wanted to look my best. (I had just turned four.) Nannie reapplied her lipstick, making a smacking sound as she pressed her lips together and opened them quickly. As I sat at her vanity, I saw all the things that she had. She didn't need powder, or a hair brush or rouge or lipstick or perfume. She didn't need curlers, they were in the left drawer. She didn't even need tissues ! I had been thinking about what to get her and could think of nothing, nothing that I could afford anyway. She didn't have a car, but she couldn't drive...we either walked or took the streetcar when we went downtown. I was quiet as we walked the five blocks to Mr. Levy's Five & Dime. I was thinking...hard !

We entered Mr. Levy's store, he had put a bell on the door attached to a wreath. I loved the sound and found it reason enough to open and close the door three more times, much to my Nannie's horror and the delight of the Levy's, smiling, as I closed it for the final time listening for the fading tinkling sound it made.

We greeted the Levy's and a neighbor or two and then I started looking, and looking and looking. I was taking a long time, but could find nothing that she needed. In despair I did something I never had done before, but then, I was bigger and older than the last time we were here. I walked over to Mr. Levy, put my hand in his and tugged ! I tugged until he bent down to my level.

"What can I help you with, my little precious ?"

With tears in my eyes I told him of my dilemma, whispering so that no one else could hear ! And adding that my Daddy said it had to be something that she needed.

Mr. Levy's eyes sparkled, as he bent back down and said, "Oh, that's easy, she told me just the other day without even knowing it !"

"What, " I asked, "what could she ever need ?" He whispered in my ear. I was so surprised I looked at him and said, "Honest, she needs that ?"

He assured me that she did. So after discussing the price, which was exactly the amount that I had, he said he would deliver it to her back door after the store closed, because I could not carry it, besides it was on their way home... they went right past my Nannie's house.

"Be quiet, please !" I said in a loud whisper. He winked and assured me that he would.

Nannie and I walked home....OK, I skipped all the way I was so happy. I would have never dreamed that she needed what Mr. and Mrs. Levy were going to drop by the house on their way home.

The next morning I awoke to the whoop and holler of my Nannie. Jumping out of bed I ran to the kitchen, with the door still wide open, just in time to see her opening her present. Yes, they had wrapped it. She tore at the paper and at the paper underneath and picked up the bag and laughing, starting pouring the gravel out of the five pound bag right into that place in the dirt path that always got full of water when it rained ! She was in her nightgown, I was standing just inside the screen door watching my Nannie distribute the gravel so that when it rained neither she nor I would have to step in the puddle of water ever again. Something she needed.....

Nannie said to me, " I wonder who did this ?"

"I did !," I said.

"YOU ?'

"Yes ma'am, Daddy gave me money to buy you something you needed !"

"But....."

"Mr. Levy told me yesterday in the store, that's what took so long ! He and Mrs. Levy put it there last night on their way home after the store closed !" I was hopping up and down 'cause she was so happy.

"Nannie...come in, it's cold and I'm hungry !" She turned the bag upside down and let the last of the white gravel rush out and fall to the ground. It made a swooshing and light clattering sound as it left the bag and hit the ground.

"I'm coming," she said as she walked across the gravel enjoying the crunching sound she had prayed for.

Later, after breakfast, we got dressed and walked to the streetcar stop and took the streetcar downtown. It was cold, so cold my cheeks were as pink as Nannies, but hers was rouge. We saw Mr. Peanut on Broad Street. Crowded as it was, he spotted me and came my way with a bag of peanuts, I put them in my pocket, pushing them way down so they wouldn't fall out. We went to the store where Nannie worked to say hello to all the ladies she worked with...and for a special treat for me. The HATS ! I loved sitting in front of the big mirror and trying on hats. Hats with feathers, hats with veils, hats with flowers and some with all three things combined. My Nannie made those hats, and I loved every one. Later we had a late lunch at Ewart's Cafeteria and caught the streetcar home. It was almost dark, and we were both tired. We walked in the back gate to the house and up the path to the porch, it was quiet, but the sound of gravel crunching under our feet was music to our ears ! She gave my hand a squeeze...I squeezed back.

The next day, after lunch, Mom and Daddy pulled up to the front gate, I stood on the couch and waved to them from the window as they walked up to the sidewalk to the porch. Nannie opened the door for them and I was jumping on the couch, which was allowed at Nannie's house at least once a visit. Daddy reached out and caught me and I gave him a tight hug and then I reached over and kissed Mom on the cheek.

"Daddy, guess what.....?"

"Did you get your Nannie something she needed, Punkin' ?" he asked. I nodded, making my curls bounce. He wanted to know what and I told him he would see ! Nannie was already dragging Mom by the hand toward the back door in the kitchen. She opened the door, pushed back the screen and pointed to the sparkling white gravel at the bottom of the three steps, tears were running down her cheeks...."Look," she said!

All four of us, me still in Daddy's arms, stood on the porch looking at the white gravel, the sun was shining on it and it made it look like it was hiding diamonds. Nannie was bawling now and still trying to talk and tell them what I had done. Daddy coaxed us back in the kitchen and put me down and I tried to hug every body's legs. I was so happy !

Daddy bent down and said, "Is that what she needed ? "

"Un-huh," I said. "Mr. Levy said so." Daddy smiled and pulled me close, his rough wool pants felt warm on my cheek.

We had coffee, I had milk with a touch of coffee, and then it was time to go back home to Newport News. We grabbed my suitcase, put on my coat and Nannie walked us out to the car. Daddy opened the door for Mom and Mom asked Nannie for the tenth time if she would come with us...she shook her head...tears still flowing, she always cried when we left. I got in Mom's lap, then stood up in the front seat in the middle. Daddy got in, and closed the door. We blew kisses through the window of the car, Nannie walked back to the front gate, opened it, and started up the walk and finally reached the front porch. Still crying, she wiped her tears with her apron, and waved frantically. We pulled off, Mom and I still blowing kisses, Daddy waving good-bye out of the window over the top of the car. We turned the corner, and another, to get back on the main road out of town.

"Daddy, guess what ?"

"Not now, Punkin', wait 'til I get on the big road."

"But DADDY !"

"Not now," he said gently. Mom pulled me closer, covering me with kisses and making me giggle. We drove a short way, made another turn, and then Daddy said, "OK, Punkin'. tell me ?"

I turned and whispered out loud in his ear, "Daddy, did you know that Santa was Jewish ?"

He smiled and said, "What makes you think so ?"

" 'Cause Mr. Levy knew what Nannie needed !

I clapped my hands with joy as we all laughed ! I sat down, snuggled close to my mom and slept until we reached our back door. Daddy carried me in the house....

"Wake up, sweetie pie."

He put me down, and there I stood in front of the most beautiful tree in all the world. More presents than ever wrapped and tucked under the tree; it really smelled like Christmas too. Mom fixed us a bowl of soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. It was all I could do to eat it all I was so excited. So I left the crust.

I rubbed my eyes and took Mom's hand to go upstairs. Half way up I said, "WAIT ! I forgot !" I pulled away and went down the steps. I found the manger scene just in front of the Christmas tree, and with all the love in me, bent over and kissed the Baby Jesus and wished Him a Happy Birthday. Daddy smiled as I kissed him goodnight behind the book he was reading and he told me to hurry up and not to forget to brush my teeth, and get in bed...

Sleep would come easy, I was so happy and warm. Mom's nighty night kiss closed my eyes and I slept knowing that my Nannie got something she needed for Christmas....and it was from me and a Jewish Santa Claus !

The next morning after opening all my presents I went and sat on Daddy's lap. He read me the comics from the paper while Mom cooked breakfast.

"Your Nannie called late last night, long after you were asleep and wanted you to know that it rained in Richmond, but thanks to you the mud puddle wasn't there; it was filled with beautiful white 'Christmas Rocks !' I kissed his cheek, and we went to the kitchen for breakfast, my Sparkle Plenty doll went with me !
 

     Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Christmas memory with us, Dimples! Merry Christmas!

 


BONUS CHRISTMAS STORY:

From http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/inspirational-christmas-stories8.htm:

"The Little Drummer Boy"

David grew up in the kitchen of the inn. His father was the innkeeper. His mother cooked the food. David's older sisters cleaned the rooms, and his older brother swept the stable. David loved to sing. He would sing to his mother as she cooked the food. David made up songs and banged on pots and bowls as he sang to her. David's mother smiled at him. "Someday you will sing in the temple, my son," his mother said. David grinned at his mother. "Tem-ple," David said very carefully.

David's father came into the kitchen. "How is my big boy?" David's father asked as he swung David onto his shoulders. "Pum Pum Pum! Tem-ple come!" David sang as he drummed on his father's head with a wooden spoon. David's father smiled as his son kept on drumming. "We must find this boy a drum or my poor head will not survive!" said David's father, with a laugh.

A few years later David got a small drum for his birthday. Soon he was beating rhythms on his drum wherever he went. Pat-a-rum, pat-a-rum, pat-a-rum, David drummed to copy the donkeys on the road. Swish-click-click-tum, swish-click-click-tum, went David's drumming to copy his brother sweeping straw in the stable.

One day David's father said to his family, "We are going to be very busy. Caesar Augustus has ordered a count of all the families in all the towns."

"Pum Pum. Pa-rum-pum-pum-pum. I counted six of us!" David sang. "Why does this make us busy?"

"Because people will come to Bethlehem to be counted with their families," said David's father. "They will need a place to stay. They will stay with us, and we will be very busy."

David's mother cooked more food. David's sisters cleaned the rooms. David's brother swept out the stable and put new hay and pots of water in the stalls. David's father greeted the people as they came into town. Soon the inn was very full. David played his drum and sang his songs for the people.

Late one night there was a knock at the door. David peeked around his father at the young man and his wife, who was on a donkey. They had no room for these people! What could they do? David's father was a kind man. "You can stay in the stable," he said. "It is warm and dry there. I can send food out to you."

The young man thanked David's father and walked the donkey to the stable.

David helped his mother carry bread and cheese out to the young couple. His mother told him the woman was going to have a baby soon. The next day there was a lot of excitement.

"The young woman who stayed in the stable last night had her baby," David's mother told him.

"The baby is the King of Kings, they say!" said David's father.

David could not see the baby because of the crowd around the stable. David stood at the back of the crowd and began to make up a song for the baby: "Come, they told me, our newborn king to see. Our finest gifts we bring to lay before the king. So to honor him when we come."

The crowd began to part when they heard David's beautiful singing: "Baby Jesus, I am a poor boy, too. I have no gift to bring that's fit to give a king. Shall I play for you on my drum?"

David stepped closer to Mary, Joseph, and their son. Baby Jesus smiled at David, reached out, and patted his drum.

FINALLY:

 
From http://www.ahajokes.com/christmas_jokes.html:
 
"Optimist vs. Pessimist"

A family had twin boys whose only resemblance to each other was their looks. If one felt it was too hot, the other thought it was too cold. If one said the TV was too loud, the other claimed the volume needed to be turned up. Opposite in every way, one was an eternal optimist, the other a doom and gloom pessimist.

Just to see what would happen, on the twins' birthday their father loaded the pessimist's room with every imaginable toy and game. The optimist's room he loaded with horse manure.

That night the father passed by the pessimist's room and found him sitting amid his new gifts crying bitterly.

"Why are you crying?" the father asked.

"Because my friends will be jealous, I'll have to read all these instructions before I can do anything with this stuff, I'll constantly need batteries, and my toys will eventually get broken." answered the pessimist twin.

Passing the optimist twin's room, the father found him dancing for joy in the pile of manure. "What are you so happy about?" he asked.

To which his optimist twin replied, "There's got to be a pony in here somewhere!"

Away in a Manger

Verse 3 is by John T. McFarland (1851-1913), 1904

Music (Cradle Song) by William J. Kirkpatrick, 1895


Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head.
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes,
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes;
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray;
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,
And fit us for Heaven to live with Thee there.
