4 min read

When you say Christmas, what comes to mind immediately? Santa, gifts, Christmas tree, family get- together, parties, vacations and loads of fun. Wait, can Christmas be complete without the songs, the carols? Much before the holiday season begins, the songs fill the air ushering in the spirit. With so much music that comes with the festival, toddlers enjoy Christmas. However, many of the songs may be difficult for them to sing given the difficulty of the words and their limited vocabulary. Moreover, it may be difficult for them to conceptualize the images that some of the words bring in. Hence it is very important to choose the right songs to teach and sing with toddlers so that they can be part of the party and fun that the festival brings with it.
