Christmas eve is always a special time for our family. On Sunday evening, my oldest son and I were playing for a Christmas eve event at a church in Newmarket. The band had a leader, a drummer, my son on bass, me on guitar and a harp (harmonica).
We played traditional Christmas carols although with a variety of arrangements from folk and country to rock. We did a great audience participation segment against The Twelve Days of Christmas. We lit candles. We remembered the reason for celebrating Christmas.
For whatever reason, it was a perfect evening. Warm, intimate, friendly, casual and musical. My whole family was there with me.
A wonderful, magical moment in time.
