    After a number of years (we won’t admit how many) of staying firm
    on Advent hymns until the last Sunday of Christmas, our worship/music
    staff did what we think is a clever thing, a compromise of sorts but not
    a total cave . We chose Advent hymns that *sound* like carols for the first
    2 Sundays and then have carols the other two.
    People Look East
    Of the Father’s love
    Awake, awake and great the new Morn.
    Prepare the way O Zion
    Come, Thou Long expected Jesus
    Lift up your Heads
    Savior of the Nations come
    Good Christian Friends
    People commented “You mean you finally heard us?” (with a smile)

      Love it! Sounds like you found a really good way of dealing with competing needs. Good for you.
