The holiday season is a time to come together, celebrate, and create lasting memories. For musicians, it is also an opportunity to infuse their love for music into the festivities. Whether you’re a professional musician or simply enjoy playing an instrument, here are some holiday traditions to try that will add a musical touch to your celebrations.

Singing carols around the fire

One of the most beloved holiday traditions is gathering around the fire and singing carols. As a musician, you can take this tradition to the next level by accompanying the singing with your instrument. Whether it’s playing the guitar, piano, or even a ukulele, adding musical accompaniment will bring a unique element to the experience.

Hosting a musical pot luck

Food and music have always been a perfect combination. Instead of hosting a traditional pot luck, why not plan a musical pot luck? Invite your musician friends and ask them to bring their instruments along with their favourite holiday dish. Each person can take turns performing a holiday song or a musical piece while others enjoy the food.

Creating a musical advent calendar

Advent calendars are a fun way to count down the days until Christmas. As a musician, you can put a creative twist on this tradition by creating a musical advent calendar. Each day leading up to Christmas, you can choose a holiday song or a piece of music that holds a special meaning to you. Share your selection with friends and family by performing it.

The holiday season is a time for joy, love, and creating meaningful memories. For musicians, it’s an opportunity to incorporate their passion for music into the festivities. Singing carols around the fire, hosting a musical pot luck, and creating a musical advent calendar are just a few traditions that can add a special touch to your holiday celebrations. sign up for free GIF
