100 Years of Christmas Music - 2010's

100 Years of Christmas Music - 2010's

Music has always been a vital part of my Christmas celebrations, even since I was a child and into my adulthood.  During my childhood my family started out with a small radio that my parents placed on the fireplace mantel but then years later that was replaced with a surround sound stereo.  However, the real music that stands out in my memory was from Christmas Eve candle light services hearing the German Baptist choir harmonizing the songs of the season.

Even more precious than the choir music that I have memorialized in my heart occurred around the Advent Wreath during our 
"Advent Family Worship" (click HERE to read).

In this series I will feature Christmas songs from each decade over the past 100 years.
Even though we will just be beginning the final year of this decade, I thought that we have enough information to sum up this decade of the 2010's.  We just finished featuring songs from the 20's (click HERE to view 2000's)
  Today we continue our musical study with the "2010's."
This decade is known as "Twenty-tens" or "Two Thousand and Tens".  It has been a decade of many disruptions in world leadership - Hugo Chavez, Muammar Gaddafi and Kim Jong-ill all died.  In the "War on Terror", Osama bin Laden was assassinated in 2011.  The worst natural disaster (earthquake and tsunami) turned into the world's worst nuclear disaster in 2011 (Fukushima, Japan).  The Western world began an uprising against globalism with the Brexit vote (UK) and the election of President Donald Trump (USA).  In the tech world the tablet and laptop computers surpassed the PC computer.  Broadband internet and smartphones became mainstream.

This movie came out in 2017 and I hope that it will become a classic for future generations:
