The sight of Christmas lights or colorfully wrapped packages around a Christmas tree may be your favorite trappings of the season, but for me nothing says Merry Christmas like music.
I’ll admit to being more than a little sentimental about Christmas and the older I get the less I find the need to apologize for it. The all Christmas radio station formats that include the same 150 songs played over and over do wear on me a bit, but my personal collection includes lots of pop and country Christmas tunes that I pull out of the closet each December.
Some of my best loved Christmas songs were recorded more than 30 years ago by The Carpenters.
I’m pretty sure that should I be lucky enough to make it to heaven, Karen Carpenter will be among the singing angels there. .
Or, at least I hope so!
That’s the way I see it.
