some tweeks to make it easier to play, when you are up at the fifth fret, you can change the chords to this

C                F                   C
O Ho-ly Night! The Stars are bright-ly shin-ing,
e|---0--0-0----3----3----5-----5----------5--8-------------------------------|
B|---1---------1---------6----------6-------------8--------------------------|
G|---0---------0---------5----------5-------------5--------------------------|
D|---2------------------------------7-------------5--------------------------|
A|----------------------------------8-------------7--------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
there are also a couple of other places that are easier to play if you transpose the chords up the neck.
