Prepare to have your ears greeted by Yuletide music in every store you enter. You may find it distracting, even annoying. But this year set aside your irritation, your cynicism. Hear the tunes as a longed-for respite from the daily assault of unrelenting bad news. Hear the songs as reminders of life-time blessings, as harbingers of hope.

Unfortunately, the words have become cliches by now but cliches were popular because they expressed something in the best possible way to be understood by many, so let’s embrace carols and cliches for Christmas.
