I have very few memories as a child, I don’t really know why that is, but it makes Christmas time a bit funny. Christmas time is all about memories. This year, due to taking my holiday from work before Christmas, has meant that it’s been a lot more relaxed and so I’ve been able to restart two traditions:
- Hannah and I sat and watched The Snowman on television on Christmas Eve. It’s a animation set to music; unsurprisingly it is the story about a young boy and a snowman. Aled Jones became famous for singing the theme tune to it.
- Secondly, when I was younger I was a fairly good choir boy. I’ve always enjoyed music, and grew up in a home where there was music always being played. Christmas is one of those special times with John Rutter anthems and descants to carols such as O Come All Ye Faithful. So it’s with much excitement that I joined the choir this Christmas for the Christmas Eve carol services. I’m certainly not a singer anymore, but it was good fun.
