An Angel Came Down


An Angel Returned

The World That She Sees

The World That He Sees

The Wisdom of Snow

It was around this time last year (or maybe the year before) when I spent twelve days posting my favorite holiday songs. I’m going to do something like that again this year. I’ve got reasons.

I’ve fled the country for a couple of weeks in Europe. It’s a first-time to Europe kind of trip for me. Berlin, Prague and Vienna are the destinations. I plan on being as absent from my blog and not tweeting, and generally staying away from social media as much as I can. Although you may see an occasional picture show up hereabouts or over on FB or on Twitter.

When I did this before, I included a song or two from Trans-Siberian Orchestra — definitely a group that doesn’t necessarily appeal to everybody. But I enjoy them and I enjoy revisiting their holiday music every December. They are a great mix of some beautiful music and some that are befitting of their alter ego arena rock mode.  They’re concerts are incredible, completely with children’s choirs, a tenor-voiced narrator, a rock ‘n’ roll violinist, and a great mix of music that tells a story of Christmas.

So, here’s what’s going to happen. I’m going to schedule a different TSO song for every day that I’m gone. Hopefully, you’ll find something in the mix to enjoy. My only word of advice is that their music needs to be played at maximum volume.

(I’ve tried to find the best live versions of these songs I could get off of YouTube. You’ll see that was a somewhat hit or miss proposition. I’ve done what I could.)

Meanwhile — here’s hoping that you and yours have a peaceful Holiday Season filled with love, family and friendship.
