The songwriter is Mederith Willson, who is not well known. But many famous people have sung her song: “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Everywhere you go …”

Just go outside. One would think winter was already here instead of waiting for Dec. 21.

Christmas is on a Tuesday this year, which means Christmas Eve is on a Monday. Monday is not a usual day for feeling festive, not like Friday or Saturday. But it’ll have to do. It’s not here yet, though; Dec. 25 is weeks away, but look at the commercials on TV. Of course, Black Friday pushed the envelope to get us thinking about Christmas presents.

Another sign that it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas is The Twin City Choristers Christmas Concert, which was on Sunday, Nov. 25 at United Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem. This year’s theme was “The Birthday of A King.”

The Christmas carols and sacred songs ushered in the feeling of the season.

Advent heralds the Christmas season. It will begin on Sunday, Dec. 2 and end on Monday, Dec. 24.

Various local venues will provide sights and sounds of Christmas, and others will remind us of the true meaning of the holiday.

We as residents of the Triad and residents of North Carolina are probably glad to see 2018 begin to wind down, having faced two hurricanes this year.

We can use some cheer. Bring it on. Burr…. Burr….
