Hey Kid: Christmas Carols
I’ve already written to you about my love of music. I’m not very particular in my taste. I love it all. But I do have some favorite artists and even a favorite genera and that is, Christmas carols. One of my favorite things about Christmas carols is that they are timeless. I know the words (and will sing along) to just about every classic Christmas carol ever recorded. And I’m not just talking about the chorus… I know all of the verses too. I learned them in school as a child where we always performed in a Christmas production. And if that wasn’t enough, my mom would play the non-stop during the holidays. Religious, secular, silly and profound, listening to this music is the easiest way to get the holiday spirit.
My kids know the songs, but I don’t think they have the same emotional attachment. I think it’s going to be my responsibility to make sure you learn these classic songs. I’m up for the challenge. We’ll make a game of it and sing them together.
