This atheist with pagan-Buddhist leanings loves Christmas music.
writer I love lyrics. Christmas carols/hymns are replete with symbolism:
light conquers darkness, the resurrection of hope in the birth of a
child, the sacrifice of innocence through a violent death. The angst,
the drama, and the tragedy of it all speak to me.
I love Christmas music
for its mighty emotional punch. I get goosebumps every time I hear my
favorite song …
“… and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!”
