I truly believe that music functions as the best scrapbook there is. Listening to a song can bring back everything about a moment in time better than anything else I’ve found.
Holiday music is a great example of this. Whenever you catch a melody of a holiday tune, you are instantly transported back into your childhood home. You can smell your mother’s baking, see presents under the tree, and feel the warmth of the fire place. It’s truly amazing how a song takes you back there.
I have a couple of favorite holiday tunes that I wanted to share:
“White Christmas” by Bing Crosby
When I was a little girl, I used to actually make my own holiday cards and write inside all of them, “May your days be merry and bright; and may all your Christmases be white.”
I always thought this song was fun and cute. It reminds me of an era long gone as well.
Happy holidays everyone!
