Christmas music, movies, and TV shows

I was waking up from a well-deserved nap in my “Comfy Chair,” and I heard Christmas music playing. While I love watching the widescreen, I enjoy my radio, especially at this time of year! The variety of Christmas music is vast and moves thru so many genres. I love the Beauty of the Christmas Hymns & Responsorial songs. I sing in the choir at church, and they elicit so many beautiful emotions. “Silent Night,” “O Come O Come Emanuel,” “Today Is Born Our Savior,” “What Child is This,” “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear,” “Angels We Have Heard On High,” “We Three Kings Of Orient Are.” All church music indeed touches my heart all year long; it is especially true at Christmas and Easter.

Pop Venues are often so heartwarming, “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas,” “White Christmas,” I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “Little Drummer Boy.” Then there are the humorist songs, “A Holly Jolly Christmas,” “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer,” “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” “All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth,” “I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas,” ‘The Chipmunks Song,” So much Christmas holiday spirit.

I Love the Christmas Movies. “White Christmas,” “The Grinch,” “Scrooge,” “Home Alone,” “Miracle On 34th Street,” “It’s A Wonderful Life,” “A Christmas Story,” “Elf,” “Holiday Inn,” “The Santa Claus,” “National Lampoons Christmas Vacation,” “Scrooged,” “The Christmas Chronicles,” “The Polar Express.”

Christmas television shows, “Frosty The Snowman,” “Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “A Charley Brown Christmas,” “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town,” “The Little Drummer Boy,” “The Year Without Santa Claus,” “Winnie the Pooh And Christmas Too,” I need to mention all the regular television shows that would put on a Christmas themed show in December.

Many “Stars” would also host a variety show, “Andy Williams,” “Dolly Parton,” “Mariah Carey,” “Perry Como,” “Bob Hope,” “John Denver,” “Judy Garland,” “Bing Crosby,”

What a wonderful season Christmas is. The decorations, the food, family & friends. The Magic of watching little children looking at the gifts under the Christmas Trees. The love of Christmas is everywhere, in music, movies, television, at church, and in our homes. I wish the Christmas season and how people treat each other would stay with us every day, all year long, and That our Churches would fill up every Sunday like they do on Christmas. We have been shown the way; we just need to walk the way! Merry Christmas Everyone!
