When I was growing up in Minnesota, the approach of the holidays was always gradual and exciting. The first snow would be the beginning of winter, but maybe even more important for a kid in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, it was the beginning of the countdown to Christmas, Hanukkah, and the New Year. It was like a 3 month long Advent calendar – a crescendo of lights going up, shop windows being decorated, presents being made, trees coming home from the farms. The more Christmassy it got, the more excited my siblings and I got. Here’s a new Christmas song, Christmassy. Available now for stream and download, and listen on YouTube!
“The Best Gift”
Underlying the Christmas story, and sometimes amidst the holiday hoopla, the themes of redemption and forgiveness still resonate. This is a song about personal forgiveness in that context of universal forgiveness. Available now for stream and download!
