Day 25: A Song That Conveys What Christmas Means To You
Merry Christmas! Hope Santa brought you something you really wanted/ needed and you’re spending some time with those near and dear to you. Here’s what Christmas means to us.
Josh: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – This Time of Year
This song has been a favorite of mine for years because it really just sums up my feelings for Christmas perfectly. ‘The bells, the bows, the flashing lights/ the mistletoes and the ‘Silent Nights’/ It’s all for show, and that’s alright/ That’s not why I love this time of year/ This time of year/ It gets me, and never lets me/ act like I don’t care/ This time of year/ Is my favorite time of year/ ‘Cause all of us are here together’ I honestly get a little choked up listening to it sometimes, which is weird because it’s a cheerful little rocker of a tune, but the lyrics are just too honest and sentimental. It tugs at my heart strings.
Joey: Downhere – How Many Kings
Christmas has always been a special time of year for me– gift-giving, lights, music– but why it remains a special time for me is the same reason I’ve celebrated it since I was small.
