During this time of year, you'll hear lots of Christmas music streaming through my house. The other day, when I was having a "writer block/brain freeze" moment, I just sat back and concentrated on the music, a trio of ballads, "O Holy Night," "What Child is This?," "The Christmas Song."
These tunes happened to be several of my favorites. Closing my eyes, I took a deep breath and simply concentrated on the words and melody. When the arc was over -- and the commercial began to play -- my "brain freeze" had defrosted.
Anyone have a favorite Christmas song (or songs!)? Do you gravitate toward the sentimental songs that make you teary-eyed? Or the gleeful ones that make you feel "jolly" and "bright?" Have you ever considered what about that song makes it so appealing?
Enjoy the music, Everyone, and have a great week!
