Christmas Eve

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.

    Sounds like a good time was had by all. Not sure if you noticed this year, but it appeared that more and more people reverted back to saying “Merry Christmas”, rather than “Happy Holidays”. I have nothing against anyone celebrating their occasions way they want, when they want, but don’t take Christmas away from those who celebrate it. Perhaps we should be reducing political correctness, not Christmas celebrations.
