The bells at Temple Square

This year I was so lucky to be able to participate in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert! Words can't describe how incredible it was! It was such a great experience for me and something that I will NEVER forget! It was such a powerful progam...their guests were Brian Stokes Mitchell and Edward Herrmann and I love them both! They both were so sweet and so humble! Brian Stokes is such an amazing singer...he blew me away!
Music is such a powerful thing anyway, but when you combine it with the spirit and the message of Christ's birth, you fall nothing short of phenomenal! I love Christmas time and the feeling that comes with it. There's always a sort of "glow"all around. I'm sure the snow, the christmas lights, the gift giving and the time spent with family and friends is definitely part of that glow. But I think the true reason for the special feeling is because of the emphasis on Christ and His birth, even if people refuse to admit it. It really is a magical time of year and for me, being in the Christmas concert made this year extra special. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! :) Love you all!
