Normally, during this time of year, I dedicate the first set of the evening to the Christmas Story. In 45 minutes, I play my favorite Church carols in the order I envision them to be sung in a Nativity pageant.
This year, I’m scattering wise men, Mary, Bethlehem, stars, shepherds, mangers angels and the baby Jesus completely out of order in every set I play, mixed in with the standard repertoire I play year round.
It reminds me that the spirit of joy, peace and goodwill isn’t just for the holidays.
It’s for everyday.
