Childhood Christmas Memories
The song I have chosen for this post is a 1956 classic Christmas carol. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Perry Como. This and other classic Christmas carol take me back to a very special time in my life, when I was a little girl. My mother sang very well and had a really good voice, and my father played the piano...by ear, quite well. Although we never had a piano of our own, I got to hear my father play on several occasions when I was about 10 years old. He was working as a sexton at a Presbyterian church back then, and he played the piano so well.
My parents had pretty good taste in music, in my opinion. They loved honky tonk piano and many classics from the 1930's and 1940's, and I think this is part of the reason that I love this type of music so much. I have to be honest in saying that I have only been really digging into this music in the last couple of years by going on YouTube and seeing what they have there. Since then I am really hooked on this music.
I hope you all enjoy this post. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I always appreciate and enjoy reading your thoughts, which you can always share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.
