Why We Love Holiday Music So much

There are a lot of arguments out there around the playing of holiday music too early. While some save the holiday music for well, the Holidays, there are so many reasons why it makes us happy and brings us back to a more joyful time of our lives. Here are a few reasons to get into the spirit of the season and listen to some of the most classic songs to ever exist.

It’s Joyful.

Yes, there are a few songs out there that talk about giving up your heart on Christmas and having it given away the very next day, but most of us are blaring “Joy to the World” and “Deck the Halls” and who could forget every elementary kid’s favorite “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.” If these titles didn’t make you smile, you might be the Grinch.

It’s Scientifically Proven To Make You Happier

On a neurological level, your brain connects holiday music to those joyful times in your life. The nostalgia certain songs bring you helps your brain make these connections.

Bing Crosby

Better known as the father of holiday music. His albums are still on top as some of the best holiday albums ever made, and most everyone in the world has heard his renditions of “O’ Holy Night,” “White Christmas,” and just about every other joy-filled tune played during the Holiday Season.

Holiday Follies

That’s right, the Lake Dillon Theatre Company’s Holiday Follies are the perfect opportunity to get in the spirit of the season. A perfect mix of yuletide classics and new songs celebrating the season of giving. It is a warm hug by a cozy fire. Featuring some of the LDTC’s favorite artists including Chrissy Schmidt, Bob Moore, Alexa Hendrickson, Caleb Warren, Britney Jeffery, and Arnold Harper II. So, what are you waiting for? Get ready for a whole lot of holiday celebrations and purchase your tickets before they run out. We can’t wait to see you there!
