Christmas Music – 2013

Every year it seems that the Christmas season passes way to quickly. Preparation for the big event almost overwhelms enjoyment of the holiday. During this 2013 December we will fill our house with Christmas music, which just creates a pleasant atmosphere. We know homes around the country are adorned with trees, lights, wreaths,and garland.
