Who says that when our life is over that we’re forgotten, that our music dies?
Elementary students from Keystone Montessori School in Ahwatukee spent hours this past holiday season visiting local area assisted living centers. Students, ages 9-12, sang Christmas carols, decorated resident homes and played musical instruments at both Desert Garden Assisted Living in Ahwatukee and Sunrise Senior Living in Chandler.
That happy rainy day has arrived.
Third-grade Brownie Troop 864 and first-grade Daisy Troop 867 from Kyrene de la Colina Elementary School visited the new Mountain Park Senior Living Center recently to spread a little Christmas cheer. The girls sung carols as the residents with happy smiles joined in. A wonderful night of holiday celebration among generations in Ahwatukee Foothills.
I love Christmas music — all kinds of Christmas music, traditional, piano, pop, rock — if it is spreading holiday cheer, I listen to it. Christmas music is played in our house from the day after Thanksgiving to New Year’s. It puts me in the mood to decorate the house, bake cookies and wrap presents. Yes, Christmas music puts a smile on my face.
In Germany, “Weihnachtsgottesdienst” or “Christmas Worship” is generally celebrated in an evening service on Christmas Eve. Traditional German carols are sung, the story of Jesus’ birth is told, and the pastor tells of how the Christ child’s birth opens the door to “Peace on Earth, Good will to all.”

Hale Centre Theatre's "A Christmas Carol"
From elaborately decorated trees to drive-through lighting displays to boat parades and train shows, a variety of holiday spectacles are being staged through the end of December and into early January around the country. Here are a few of them.
People hurry across the cobblestone streets, waving to friends, smiling at a neighbor as they pass. A hissing coal fire warms the otherwise bleak lane, hugged by snow-peaked brownstones and a bruised London sky. Big Ben towers on the horizon: ever watchful, ever keeping — the time until the play begins at Gilbert’s Hale Centre Theatre. It’s opening night of “A Christmas Carol” and the stage lights are beginning to dim.
It's a simple matter of math: there are 24 Days of Christmas and there are hundreds of Christmas movies.

Here are The Associated Press’ reviews of selected holiday albums:
When I decorate my home for the holidays, I like to get really creative with my dining-room decor. I find it energizing to think up new ways to pay tribute to the season in this special space, where my family and friends gather for Christmas dinner. This year's display is a soft and serene celebration of Mother Nature.
