A holiday is about the time spent together with loved ones. It is about gifts that come from the heart, and it is the about the thousands of years of tradition that mark the holiday season.

    I sang along with joy in my heart, the greatest sound I've ever heard.
    From "O Holy Night" to "What Child is This?" I cherished every word.
