The Holiday Season


What are your most favorite and least favorite things about the holiday season?

My least favorite thing about the holiday season are the “specials” on Tv that are 20 and 30 years old that they bring out every year. They are not very good and the animation today is so much better than the claymation from years ago. They stretch the “plot” of a song into a little story and it is so boring and makes me crazy.

My most favorite thing about the holiday season is the music. Not the music that they play piped into the stores and the jazzed up versions of traditional Christmas carols but the real traditional Christmas carols and traditional music and ancient music from the medieval period that is often played in churches. I love that music. I love to go to concerts to hear these hymns and songs. That is my favorite part of the holiday.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
