The holiday season is upon us, and it means that we are swirling in the hustle and bustle of all of that seasonal chaos. Many people don’t like this time of year, but I love it. I love everything about the holiday season – the twinkling lights, the merry music, the gift giving! People seem to just be in a better mood this time of year, and we all seem focused on making humanity a little bit better.
No matter how you celebrate this time of year, music often plays a big part in these celebrations. I started listening to my holiday CD’s just before Thanksgiving, and now there are radio stations that are playing seasonal favorites 24 hours a day! The music conjures up all kinds of memories for me – people, places, and feelings of times gone by. In addition, these songs often serve as images of not the world we know, but the world we’d like to know. While we may not have snow covered hills or frolicking magical snow men here in Georgia, who doesn’t mind being transported to a better place and time?
