History

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining!

This is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth. It’s December once again and this is the first December of my FinancialJerk blog! Wow wow wow! I just love December! Did you know that my title is a song? Yep, if you haven’t heard of that song, then you must be living in Pluto! If it’s ever possible to live there. Or… you have a comma for so many years and you just knew how to read because… I don’t know. It’s on the genes? Hahaha!

O Holy Night or Cantique de Noël is a prominent Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847. So who is Adolphe Adam? Mr. Adam was a French composer and music critic. Mr. Adam is best known today for his ballets Giselle and Le corsaire. He’s also famous for his operas entitled Le postillon de Lonjumeau, Le toréador, and Si j’étais roi. Si j’étais roi is his finest work. I didn’t hear it or witnessed it, I just read somewhere that it’s his finest work. And of course, O Holy night!

Hmmmm? Should I share more about him? You can just Google his name and read more about Adolphe Adam. He is just an awesome composer!

I’ll be blogging again next year! That’s all for now! Merry Christmas to everyone!
