Listening to Christmas music is one of the iconic ways to celebrate the season. And families get jolly by singing Christmas carols, so I couldn’t think of a better way to get into the Christmas spirit then by singing and listening to Christmas music. This afternoon I gathered with church friends and went to a local nursing home to sing Christmas carols.
The aides and nurses wheeled the residents into the lobby where we were going to sing. It was just a lovely holiday experience. I especially enjoyed seeing a few of the residents sing with us. There is something about singing while someone is singing to you at the same time. Combine that with the fact that they were songs about the birth of Jesus, what a marvelous feeling in that room!
After caroling I attended a Christmas dinner and Cantio Flute Quartet concert at St. Andrews Episcopal with friends. What a distinctive Christmas gala of lively conversation and favorite Christmas music. http://cantioflutes.com/
I hope you find ways to enjoy this luminous Christmas season. Let Christmas be a happy time; let music fill the air with chime and joyful songs galore.
