Christmas music evokes childhood memories of Christmas morning, family celebrations, elaborate meals, and magical stories of a baby in a manger inexplicably tied to a jolly old man at the North Pole. And while we all have different experiences and memories, the music brings us all together in joy and celebration. When the Christmas tree lights go on and the snowflakes start to fall, we start to sing. We can’t help it.
“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas,
With every Christmas card I write.
May your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmases be white.”
