Encouraging Christmas Songs

Aug 10, 2008
Xmas Songs Invoke Many Memories

There are very few people who do not enjoy singing or listening to Xmas songs during the holiday season, although there are some place in which they seem to be played too early and too often. Still, certain Xmas songs evoke feelings of happiness, others provide peace and other provide a feeling of security. They can be written with words of deep religious meaning or of childish whimsy and they all have one thing in common?they are written to celebrate the holiday.

Xmas songs span all genres of music from classical to rock and roll to country and even include the ridiculous. Such songs a ?Grandma got run over by a reindeer? sparks a few laughs and maybe even a few guffaws, but the message of the song is simply to have fun during the holidays. Many Xmas songs have even been turned into movies such as ?Rudolph the red nosed Reindeer? and ?Frosty the Snowman.?

Animated Christmas movies are the staple of holiday television entertaining children and many adults year after year, as each year there is another group of children beginning to understand what they see on television. With Xmas songs playing the background it can set the stage for family traditions such as decorating a tree and the rest of the house and can serve as a reminder of what they stay up for hours after little ones are sleeping while they wrap presents and put them under a tree.

Singing Favorite Songs Often Unconscious Act

Virtually everyone who celebrates the Christmas holiday will find themselves singing Xmas songs either out loud or to themselves as they go through their regular routine. It is a way many people survive the self-imposed stresses of the season and all the extras they feel obligated to provide. Although there is no more time of money available during the season as there is throughout the rest of the year, people feel obligated to spend more of both.

Singing Xmas songs also helps pass the time when headed over the river and through the woods and with most of the family joining in the singing, it provides a feeling of togetherness for all members of the family. Being able to relate to a genre of music that everyone knows and everyone can relate to can provide hours of family time, which might otherwise be spent separated. Xmas songs can bring people together regardless of their background or their opinions of world affairs.
