I'd also like to know who Carol is.XOA.
AND why exactly she so confused? Or could it be he? Mr. Carol O'Connor back from the dead?
At age 3, I wondered who the Round Yon Virgin was in Silent Night. By about age 5, I had learned who the Virgin Mary was from my father's art books, and I decided the Round Yon was that halo always around her in Medieval and Renaissance art. After all, the halo is ROUND.
And I will forever think of a halo as a "round yon!" xo
I still ALWAYS picture a Renaissance Madonna -- with a prominent halo -- whenever I get to that line of the song. :)
