It's one month and one day till Christmas. BUT it's really only one week until the Christmas MONTH begins. And for me (and you?) the Christmas SPIRIT is the whole month.
I start smiling bigger, decorating intensity, and planning and shopping and inviting. And I start listening to Christmas carols. All. Day. Long.
I LOVE Christmas carols. I love the memories they evoke. I love the special magical music. I love the hopefulness and optimism. And I love the words, the lyrics of the carols.
Have you ever really listened to the words in your favourite Christmas carols?
“Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Let your heart be light. From now on your troubles will be out of sight.”
“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane, snow is glistening. A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight. Walking in a winter wonderland.”
“Silver bells, silver bells, it’s Christmas time in the city. Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, soon it will be Christmas day.”
“Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy, do you hear what I hear?”
“The mood is right, the spirits up. We’re here tonight and that’s enough. Simply having a wonderful Christmas time.”
The words and music transport me. And that's why I feel Sage is getting me ready to bring through a very special Christmas course - with words and music to give us the SAME EXPERIENCE as our favourite Christmas carols.
