As a child the songs of Christmas and the holiday season were always some of my favorite tunes. At that time they always made me happy.
Even today some bring back memories of times gone by. While in elementary school I was a member of the choral club, and doing one performance I actually had a solo.
Once I entered fifth grade I was made a member of the famed girls group at school–the Charmettes. This group sang on the two annual school programs. The winter program was called “Winter Wonderland”, and we always closed the program with it. Every time I hear it now I call my best friend and we break into song and laughter.
While working at a high school, the choir would do caroling through the halls. A lot of us would follow them to hear our favorite song.
I remember the great Christmas celebrations on Della Lane at home. How much fun we had decorating the tree. It seemed that everyone had a picture window where they displayed their tree. The memories of home always come to mind. I can’t go back to that time, but each year I do go home for Christmas–if only in my dreams.
Merry Christmas to all. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”. What’s your favorite holiday song?
