POST: 'Home for the Holidays' - I LOVE CHRISTMAS TIME!

What it's about.

A holiday celebration full of Christmas songs performed by singers from American Idol, Americas Got Talent and The Voice.

My experience.

If you know me, you know that I love Christmas time! I could wear sweaters like this all year round:

I knew that a production on Broadway that had any relationship to the holidays would be worth experiencing.

Candice Glover, Josh Kaufman and Bianca Ryan opened the show. When they started harmonizing together I just literally could not handle it. I wanted to get up and just…

… But then I remembered I was in a public setting and I could very well embarrass myself.

Peter Hollens and Evynne Hollens also performed. Witnessing a married couple sing Christmas songs has got to be one of the most ‘Christmas’ things I have ever done! The entire time I felt like I was in a winter wonderland.

They sung some of my favorite Christmas songs like:

  • "Someday at Christmas"
  • "Where are you, Christmas"
  • "All I want for Christmas is you"
  • "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)"

As they sung, I realized why I love the holidays so much. I simply just love the feeling I get and how much joy this season brings. I feel like everybody is so much more chill, laid back and generally happier during the holidays, and I love that. I could be completely wrong and borderline delusional but I don’t care what nobody says I LOVE CHRISTMAS TIME!

Their voices made me want to sit by a window and watch snow fall. I was in a world of fantasy where there was some level of peace on earth.

During the show, I couldn’t help but to think about people who don’t have a place to call ‘home’ for the holidays. I know that this is a season of joy and happiness but it is also a season where people get super depressed and suicidal and it reminded me that this season is also about checking on your friends and loved ones. It’s important to check up on your friends and family members all the time, but especially during the holidays.

To be honest, this entire production confirmed the FACT that there is no place like New York City during the holidays.
