So inviting, yet so scary.

The Temptation’s classic take on the wonder of Christmas Eve has stood the test of time. A couple of years ago, I wrote about how silly some of the lyrics can be. I kid because I love it so much. Make no mistake about it, “Silent Night” is an iconic song that has transcended generations. No other song sums up the season so well.
