On these twelve days before the 25th I’ll be selecting my twelve favorite Christmas tunes that may not be obscure but are rarely on Christmas compilations or piped through shopping center speakers.
Christmas is an incredibly busy and stressful time of year. But there’s always a lovely moment of sweet respite every Christmas Eve. A time to take a breather after wrapping all the presents and preparing for the joyful mayhem of the following day.
The Carpenters nail that feeling with this sweet song. So this evening when you are having that beautifully brief time to relax before the joyful mayhem of Christmas Day, make this song a part of it. Karen Carpenter’s sublime singing will ease your tension like that lovely cup of Christmas Eve tea you have before bed.
