Home Free. “Do You Hear What I Hear? (Home Free) (Christmas A Cappella).” YouTube. YouTube, 4 Dec. 2015.
Remember that for the next few weeks, I plan to share some favourite holiday music each Monday, but I don’t intend to have a story connection or really much to say about the songs I will be posting. However, this week, I just have to mention a “sort of” connection. This video was filmed in Minnesota, which just happens to be where I began my Christmas celebrations as an almost-three-week-old baby many years ago. I have many fond memories of Christmases in Minnesota — a tree cut from the woods, snow drifts piled high against the side of the house, listening to the Santa report on the radio and worrying that Mom and Dad not being in bed might make Santa pass our house, Christmas music playing on the record player, and the food (potato sausage, lefse, Swedish meatballs, pies, cookies — there was also lutefisk, which is NOT a pleasant memory ). It was such a magical time of year!
