What is it about singing in the shower? Is it the fact that the acoustics are so good that even someone like me sounds uncannily like Mariah Carey? Is it the fact that we can’t hear ourselves properly due to the sound of the water? Is it the freedom that comes with being de-robed? All I do know is that I sound fabulous in there and at this time of year, what better to sing than Christmas carols.
One thing I do wish we had here in Australia are those door-to-door Carollers you see on American movies. How lovely to open your front door and find a bunch of ordinary people merrily singing their hearts out just for my enjoyment!
Unlike me, my husband sings well both in and out of the shower and this year, will be a part of our church’s choir and be singing at our Carols service this weekend. I can’t wait! I love hearing him sing around the house, so to get to hear him sing publicly will be simply wonderful.
My parents can both sing well but I particularly remember my mum’s singing at Christmas time, especially in church. Sometimes I wouldn’t sing, just so I could listen to her. I love pretty much all Christmas carols (apart from the Little Drummer Boy, which drives me nuts for some reason) but one of my favourites is O Little Town of Bethlehem, especially when my mum sings it.
Music is so important and so good for our souls. And at Christmas time, popping a Christmas CD on is often a good way to really get in the festive mood. When I start my cooking for the season, Christmas music is a must! I simply can’t do without it and I’m sure the food would not taste as good if I didn’t have it on.
Do you have a favourite Christmas CD? I need suggestions as the half dozen I have get a pretty good workout in December and my family would surely appreciate a wider selection!
