"Let us have music for Christmas... Sound the trumpet of joy and rebirth;
Let each of us try, with a song in our hearts, to bring peace to men on earth."
~Mildred L. Jarrell
Why is Christmas music so popular? What is it about the melodies of the season that fill us up with joy, cheer, and light?
Music, especially holiday music, has a way of lifting our spirits and connecting us to times and places. Caroling with neighbors, watching the snow fall with a cup of cocoa and 'The First Noel' on in the background, and singing together during Christmas Eve service all connect us to traditions made with loved ones and times spent in contemplation or celebration. Listening to music helps ground us in the current moment and is a great way to lift your spirit.
Enjoy this Christmas playlist while baking cookies to share with neighbors, while wrapping presents with family, or take some time to share it with a friend while drinking cocoa together. We hope this music helps fill you with joy.
