I am in New Hampshire with my family enjoying a quiet Christmas Day. Being here surrounded by loved ones, I feel very fortunate. I wish to pass along my feelings of yuletide contentment to you and all of your kin today (regardless of your religious affiliation!). This is a time of year to enjoy the company of people who make you happy. I hope you are doing just that.
I do not have a Christmas song for you to listen to today, because I’m afraid of sounding like a monster from the shopping mall. I do, however, have a recommendation: this morning my family enjoyed listening to Sufjan Stevens’ multi-disk Christmas album: Songs For Christmas. It is a nice departure from our usual selections (but don’t get me wrong because I still loved listening to Willy Nelson’s Pretty Paper last night).
Enjoy the rest of your holiday, and I’ll see you all back here Monday at noon!
