Imagine what the holidays were like in the years before there was such a thing as Black Friday or Cyber Monday. Sing along to “I’ll be home for Christmas.”  Sense the wonder and joy – and perhaps a bit of fear – in children’s hearts when you tell them that magical disembodied voice is  Santa Claus hiding in your phonograph. Attend the Town Hall Christmas Eve dance in Epping, New Hampshire, with music by Elkin’s Boys of Pep.  Dance a Christmas polka, marvel at the Christmas dandy, sing advent and Christmas hymns from the ancient tradition of the Coptic Church. But whatever you do, have a wonderful holiday season!
