Maddie & Tae (Christmas music) OC: …feels so good. :40
“Christmas music is so joyful without even trying. I think for me listening to it personally, it reminds me of sitting around the piano at my Nanny and Papa’s house and my Nanny would play on the piano and sing Christmas carols and all of us grandkids would just like sing along, and my Papa was a fantastic singer, as well. So, it really just brings up a lot of great like nostalgic memories and makes me think of my family, and with the very busy, crazy, chaotic lives that we lead, Christmas is always a place for home, for rest, for those traditions, and it feels so good.”
