Holiday Songs For The Family

Transcript for A Holiday Episode of Strength In Words. There are holiday songs we all know, but those chintzy Christmas songs we all hear in department stores are certainly not the only holiday songs we can sing. Whatever traditions and holidays your family celebrates, we've put together some of our favorite holiday songs to sing with family.

This week, we want to wish you a very happy holiday season.  This special episode is dedicated to the music and traditions that represent those involved in the making of Strength In Words.

Each person, each family, each community has their own cultural and/or religious associations with holidays. One of the many parts of social and emotional development in our very young children is the development of one’s identity. Family traditions can play a big part in that. And of course, music that we associate with our childhood and with particular times of year play a big part in the memories we create for ourselves and for our families!

I hope you’ll enjoy a few songs that I associate with my own unique upbringing.

I want to thank you, my listeners, for taking this journey with me on Strength In Words. 2016 has been a big year for Strength In Words – we started the podcast, the DIY blog, introduced our infant curriculum, and released our first album. As 2017 approaches, I may be a bit more periodic in my episodes as the newest member of my family arrives and integrates himself. I look forward to sharing my perspective with you all once I have the wherewithal to do so! In the meantime, make sure to keep up with us by joining our newsletter, and following us on Facebook, Instagram & Pinterest, where I share lots of great, curated information, ideas and photographs. 

If you have someone in your life who is expecting an infant or who has a small child or multiple young children, don't forget that both The Heart Of It infant enrichment curriculum as well as our album, Strength In Words: Music For Families are great holiday gifts for any parent or educator!
