Christmas music

We hear Christmas music everywhere. We have heard it since before Thanksgiving – we often rush the season.

Some Christmas music is certainly vapid and insipid. Fortunately, much of it is profound and moving.

My friend Shannon recently posed the question on her Facebook page:

If you were to record a holiday album, what 2 songs would you include? (traditional or current)? And no “Grandma got run over by a Reindeer”

Many come to mind, but the two I would choose are:

Christmas in the Trenches” by John McCutcheon

The Rebel Jesus” by Jackson Browne

How about you? What two songs would you include?

See you along the Trail.
