The one thing that I loved about this festival as a kid was the part where we all gathered round the fireplace and sang Christmas carols which symbolized love, purity and basically turned the whole world into a musical. There was the traditional Silent Night, Ave Maria, Deck the Halls and of course Jingle Bells; all accompanied by Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. But growing up I started discovering a different genre of music altogether; something that was slightly more edgy, definitely louder. The genre known to all the guitar riff-mad, head banging and slightly rebellious souls as Rock, Christmas Tree Sale online!
What interested me most about this whole Christmas+Rock Combo was the fact that some of the more famous songs help us draw up a ’To-Do’ list of sorts about the things we need to do at Christmas.
Here is the list of things to do on Christmas (and the songs that act as musical reminders):
Sleds, snowball fights and snowmen have been such an integral part of this festival that it isn't complete till we haven’t seen our breath frosting in the cold, nose turning red and hot chocolate being oh-so-welcome. A Great Big Sled by The Killers reminds you of all this and more in a song that is euphoric and fills you up with pure happiness.
Hanging our stockings and leaving milk and cookies for Santa. Bruce Springsteen celebrated this particular tradition in his version of Santa Claus is Coming to Town. More Rock n Roll than Rock, I agree but the best part is that you can sing along as you prepare to welcome the world’s favorite old man in red, Deals on Christmas Decorations.
