As I write this, Allegro Dance Theatre is onstage performing “Sing A Christmas Carol” from the musical Scrooge.
Sing a song of gladness and cheer.
For the time of Christmas is here.
At a time when our country is divided and we find ourselves in disagreement on almost everything, these lyrics are great words to take to heart.
Look around about you and see
What a world of wonder this world can be
So as we gather with family and friends over the holidays, let us focus on the things that bring us together – not tear us apart. You know, the “joy and beauty” of music, food and fellowship.
And the joy and beauty. Oh, the joy and beauty
That a Merry Christmas can bring to you!
