Regardless what I feel, the holiday season is upon us so I decided to start acting like it. My first task? Loading up all my Christmas music into iTunes. I had one CD already there because I needed some mood music for a Christmas themed graphic design project I did a couple of months ago. Music is a big part of my life and I must say, Christmas music ranks pretty high on my list of favorites. I am, however, not one of those people who listen to Christmas music all year.
In loading up my music, however, I noticed something. I've gotten lazy with knowing the lyrics of Christmas songs. For instance, I just discovered that there are four verses to Joy to the World. All this time I thought it was only three. Once I read the missing verse, I kinda understood why most people omit it. It's not as happy and cheerful as the other verses. And I completely butchered the lyrics to Silent Night. I don't remember when I forgot Christmas lyrics.
That's the next task on my Christmas prep list: refresh my Christmas lyrics.
