Music is everywhere at Christmas
Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without music now would it? From the traditional Christmas carols sung in schools, churches, and in all the Malls and shops, everywhere, to those children’s favorites, “Rudolph the Red-nosed reindeer“, “The Christmas Alphabet” and “When Santa got stuck up the chimney” to romantic and well-loved songs such as, “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, “White Christmas” and the more modern songs, including all those published specifically at Christmas time to take advantage of the Christmas market.
Many people take their favorite Christmas albums in with them to work, even if only on the last day before Christmas and the selection of music chosen by work colleagues can be truly breathtaking, from Brenda Lee, “Rocking around the Christmas Tree”, to Carrie Underwood’s “Do You Hear What I Hear?”, giving you a whole new view of the boss or that grumpy person down the corridor. Of course, there are some businesses where music cannot be played, at least in the public areas but for many people, an MP3 player, with ear phones is a great way of getting into the Christmas spirit, especially if the office party starts at the end of the working day.
You can find lots of Christmas music for free on Youtube, especially for children and it often includes cartoons or graphics to keep them amused, although there can also be adverts and sometimes poor internet connections can spoil the fun.
As a Gift
Music is a great gift at Christmas, or at any time and if you do not know the person’s musical tastes, you can always give a gift card, so they can buy or download their favorite music or perhaps even buy themselves an ipod or MP3 player to listen to any music collections they already have.
