Daily Advent Reflection for Dec. 9

by

Yesterday’s post about In the Bleak Midwinter got me thinking about other beloved carols that insert the holy family in an unlikely context.  One of my favorite examples is “I Saw Three Ships.”  (Above you will find Nat King Cole’s version.)  Apparently this carol is based on a legend dating back to the twelfth century, that three ships brought relics from the three Wise Men to Germany.
