Jason always finds staying the SAdvent course to be the hardest at the very end. “Is this an ornament I see before me?”

Twenty Second Day of SAdvent 2013: Sad Songs Say So Much

Jason and his oldest son Aaron sing a traditional SAdvent carol which they just made up.

"O Traurigkeit Baum (The Sadness Tree Song)" 

O Sadness Tree
O Sadness Tree
Your branches are so barren
O Sadness Tree
O Sadness Tree
The children you are scarin’

End of the world
And end of me
I’m pondering
O Sadness Tree

O Sadness Tree
O Sadness Tree
Soon
You will burn
