If there’s something that has the power to unify people’s hearts it’s music! Like me, you may get transported back to when and where a particular song was playing. In my case, music brings back memories of my childhood when I carried a little black radio everywhere I went and listened to even before going to bed. My friends gave me the nickname “Little Jukebox” or “Rocolita” in Spanish.
It doesn’t really matter the genre or the band or singer who plays it, music is an instrument of inspiration. It’s like a universal language that allows us to communicate with each other and relate for a minute or two and enjoy the moment. That’s why we decided to share the list of our 18 favorite holiday songs with you. Like everyone else on Earth, at eco18, we have felt the pressure of the pandemic. But with the help of the vaccine and now the boosters, we hope that 2022 brings us better times and the blissful opportunity to enjoy ourselves with our loved ones.
We wish you ALL Merry Christmas!
