#ThirtyOneinThirtyOne - Jordyn's Story

#ThirtyOneinThirtyOne - Jordyn's Story

While watching a Christmas movie recently, it came to my attention that a large part of my enduring enchantment with Christmas is due to the songs of the season. I grew up in the church, so the Christmas season for my family when I was young always included activities such as Christmas cantatas, Christmas Eve candlelight services featuring “Silent Night” and “O Holy Night,” and weeks of Christmas songs on Sunday mornings during Advent.

In high school, I lived for Christmas performances with my show choir and loved the opportunity to sing my favorite carol, “Carol of the Bells,” at our annual Christmas concert. As an adult, I don’t get the opportunity to sing nearly as often as I would like, but I still do my best to include the gift of song in my daily routine during the holidays. Even as I write this narrative, I have Christmas music playing in the background. Being surrounded by Christmas music all year round would get boring, but for a short period of time in each year, I find that my attitude and outlook on life are more positive because of the music that I hear playing in stores, sing in church services, and hum throughout the day.

As always, my sentiments are best conveyed through song:

Christmas is here

Bringing good cheer

To young and old

Meek and the bold.
