Andy Mason: A History of Christmas Music

This event will be held at Saturday, December 16, 11:00am at the library, 515 W. College Avenue, Silver City. Who wrote the 12 Days of Christmas? Why is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer so popular? Who sang Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree? What was the first Christmas song to be performed in outer space? Did Frosty the Snowman really come to life? And, why do we love holiday music so much? From 16th century West Country English Christmas carols to Christmas music from the new millennium and EVERYTHING in between, Andy Mason will present fascinating Christmas history and trivia through music. Free for the whole family to enjoy, thanks to the Friends of the Library, the New Mexico Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
