A Musical Interlude: Happy Holidays 2017!

It’s that time of year when some of us can kick back and relax for a couple of weeks. When I was working full-time, that was difficult to do. In my retirement, it should be easy to relax, but not this year. This year I am far too busy with two very large projects, my grandchildren, and counting the days until the arrival of another granddaughter. But those are not excuses to at least relax for the holiday with some music.

Over the years, I’ve enjoyed the commercials created by Coca-Cola to celebrate the season. So, let’s begin our holiday musical interlude with probably the best holiday Coca-Cola ad ever — the original “I’d like to teach the world to sing.” I think the message is both timeless and worthy:

 

As I have said to my grandchildren, What would be a holiday without sugar plum fairies…

…and Hallelujah?

One of my favorite songs of the season is Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song,” sung here as a duet with his daughter, Natalie:

It wouldn’t seem like a holiday or quite right without wishes for a happy new year, especially as An American Editor changes day-to-day editorial leadership with the turn of the year. ABBA (who, to my great joy, has announced a reunion tour for 2019) starts us off with Happy New Year…

…and Three Dog Night has the final word: Let there be joy in the world!

 

All of us at An American Editor wish you and yours happy holidays.
May peace, love, and prosperity be yours
this holiday season and throughout the years to come!

Happy Holidays!
