Christmas music is a joy to some and a pain to others. I agree some of the secular music with no connection to anything spiritual can be annoying. On the other hand, our classical radio station plays Christmas music all December long. Most of the music is familiar hymns, but classical pieces such as The Messiah by George Handel are included. Have you ever noticed how much more meaningful the words are when you contemplate the significance of Jesus’ birth. “Oh, Holy Night,” “Joy to the World,” “Oh, Come All You Faithful;” they are so familiar. But when we take time to think deeply about the meaning of the words, they seem new every year.
