One of my favorite seasonal melodies, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” by Coldplay is a meandering, soulful tune with a piano as it’s only instrument. It’s not one of those holly, jolly carols, nor is it the slightly depressing “wish-I-could-be-home-for-Christmas songs. It’s the kind of song that reflects the feeling of sitting in your favorite armchair at home after a good Christmas meal. It’s the calm after your relatives have gone home, but the sounds of love and happiness are still echoing in the hallways. It’s the peacefulness of looking out the window at the snow flurries drifting lazily down. It’s the warming sensation of drinking hot cocoa after stomping in from a tobogganing adventure. It’s the representation of some of my fondest Christmas memories, and perhaps yours as well. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
