Observing the rituals and traditions of the Christmas season, while allowing for some spontaneity and flexibility, sometimes requires all the energies we can manage.

Despite all the madness and hassles, the season remains a very special time, celebrating one of history’s enduring events, giving reason for hope amidst the turmoil of mankind. About creating joy sometimes where there is next to none, making other lives better, reminding us of why families are so important.

That being said, the observer shifts full time into the holiday mode over the next couple of days. If you have a minute or two, enjoy one of my all-time favorite seasonal classics. Have a great Christmas.

      Another knock-out choral selection, Charlie, as was the one for Thanksgiving! Thanks for enriching our lives with these videos. It helps to focus on the essence of each holiday with such inspirational music.

      I hope your family had a great Christmas and has a Happy New Year. We just hosted my family’s Christmas (with several house guests) for the first time as my Mom’s moved moved out of her house and into a retirement home in the last year. God bless her! She’s 95 and still truckin’.
