Happy Advent.


Are you tired of the Christmas music yet?  When I opened up a Christmas playlist on Spotify this morning and glanced through the song titles I realized I had heard enough. *sigh


Christmas day is not even here and I’m already overloaded. Everything from our traditional carols to the down home, sappy holiday tunes that include Rudolph and White Christmas.


Here’s the thing.  If you enjoy Christmas music whether they are your favourite carols or the tunes from old movies, there are words that can “spark joy”. “Dashing through the snow” may bring memories of the past.  “Dreaming of a White Christmas” may be your theme.  Dream on.


What’s my point?  Whether the music you sing or hear is about the baby in the manger or chestnuts roasting, if they make you smile and feel love, then you could be connecting with love, the love of the Divine.


Music plays a  large part in many of our lives and celebrations.  Regardless of your favourite – sing on!  The joy and love of music also brings the spirit of Christmas.


Sing on!
