I came to the realization that I wasn't a Christian around the age of 15. That story is for another day. Today's story is about Holiday Songs
The hosts of Blogmas were very political when listing the prompts. They used the word Holiday, instead of Christmas for every single prompt except the last one. However it feels weird calling the songs I grew up with Holiday Songs, they are Christmas Music and are a form of worship of the Christian God and his son. I grew up on beautiful melodies Ave Marie, The First Noël, Hark! the Herald Angels Sing. I loved the music, the melody, how the different artists interrupted things differently.
This year I have done so much growing. So much so that when I put on Christmas music this year I felt myself greatly dissatisfied with the tunes. The realization that all the music surrounds Religion, Sex or Children is depressing. It is hard to find a good song that do not fall under those categories. (By sex I mean songs like, Santa Baby, All I want for Christmas is You) And just like that my desire to listen to my old favorites is gone. I feel like a part of me is missing, now that Christmas music is gone.
So what do you listen too?
