Holiday Joys for Family Fun

I thought I'd add a new, periodic category for special holiday tips and resources. Today, I'm kicking it off with a delightful special deal I found – Handel's Messiah at Amazon – there are two different albums, each with 43 songs, that are currently on sale (one album for $1.99 and the other for $3.69 - though with Amazon, that sale can end at any time, so be sure to doublecheck the price). As I understand it, there are actually a few more songs then 43. But if you've been wanting to introduce yourself or your grandkids to this lovely work of musical art, this could be a great start. You can find all the links by clicking here. :)
