A Christmas Carol

Posted by Carren |

Is it me, or do Christmas songs have a hint of melancholy, which make them even more poignant, because the season is aflood with joy?

I'm listening to Pandora's Peaceful Holidays channel now and with little tinkling keynotes from pianos that crescendo, it seems musicians are constantly trying to reach farther and farther out. into the world Their music sounds like a call to those far away to come nearer--near enough to embrace.

The holidays is a time of celebration, yes, but for me it is also a time of nostalgia and sentimentality, where I bid goodbye to another set of 365 days. It is a bittersweet brew--a cup that has to be drunk in the waning light of year.
