There's something about Christmas music: @ 08:01 am

There's something about Christmas music. Something comforting and ancient. The words are old and worn, but precious and not often used. The harmonies are no longer popular, but still accepted.

There's something about Christmas music that always takes us back to our childhoods. So it is with our parents, and thus we travel back in time to a cultural place where winter was a harsh reality, and the simple joys of seeing loved ones being fed and housed together meant that maybe, just maybe they'd all make it through the cold.

There's something about Christmas music that reflects the dichotomy of the cold world around us, and the warmth that humans provide for each other. In spite of our shortcomings, we somehow band together in the long nights and look to the coming Spring.

There's something about Christmas music that reminds me of the parts of my childhood that I never wanted to leave behind, and as such, want to provide for the children I might have.

Regardless of your religion or creed, there's always Christmas music, and the subtle strength of our ancestors who prevailed against stark realities to protect and provide for us, the heirs of human history.

There's something about Christmas music that I wish I could share with everyone, and it's this: I love you all. Stay warm.

Merry Christmas to all,
Ryan
