While Christmas music playlists often include favorites like “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” there are also a handful of tracks that go a deeper.
Listen to “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” or “White Christmas,” and you’ll hear a deep yearning to be home for the holidays especially when having to spend the holidays somewhere else.
December is filled with Christmas rituals – the TV specials, Live Rockefeller Christmas Lightning, the gifts, the lights, the music, fireplace, hot chocolate, snow, and what remains is home. It is the beating heart of the holiday, and its importance reflects our primal need to have a meaningful relationship with a setting, a place that transcends the boundary between the self and the physical world.
Holiday Spirit Blessings,
