25 Songs of Christmas

Posted on Updated on

This year for Christmas… Instead of following the advent calendar, I thought I would provide some fun and exciting way to enjoy my favorite time of year. It is that time of year that I break out all the musical talent my body can muster. I enjoy singing, playing the piano or even my other musical instruments to run through what feels like the entire Christmas song catalog

So for the next 25 days, I thought I would provide insight into some of my favorite Christmas songs. There will be religious songs, those of pop culture and who knows–maybe even a Hanukkah or two. And I can honestly say I didn’t start playing Christmas music this year until just a couple days ago… And it made it That much more special. Feel free to join in with any fun facts or memories if any of your favorite songs come up.

Song #1 : Promises To Keep

Now–i am starting with a song that doesn’t have much history. It is on the trans-siberian orchestra album and I think it is lovely when sung by the children and not solo (a youtube searched showed me this.)

So here are the lyrics (per this site ). I picked this song first because I felt it was a good place to start for Christmas songs. Simple. At the beginning. And personally while this can coincide with religious meanings…it doesn’t have to. Christmastime can be about peace, about giving, about kindness. About joy. And I do think Christmas spirit has a suty to keep promises of these alive.

This year we really need this. Let’s help keep christmas promises alive!

“Promises To Keep”

Christmas time
On a cold December morning
All is calm
And the world is still asleep
Christmas lights
That have been caught without warning
Gently glitter on
Stars to wish upon
All the world is at peace

Christmas time and the year will soon be leaving
Cloaked in time till it’s just a memory
Christmas stays if we don’t forget its meaning
Days go quickly by
Years they multiply
And we go searching for thee

And the dream is still alive
From that first December morning
And it always will survive
As long as we can see
That the dreams we find in life
Are the dreams we tend to seek
And Christmas has its promises to keep

Christmas time
And the moments just beginning
From last night
When we’d wished upon a star

If our kindness
This day is just pretending
If we pretend long enough
Never giving up
It just might be who we are
