I had the honor of touring Australia and New Zealand with a band many years ago. There is a tradition of Christmas in July in Australia when they celebrate Christmas. Since they are the "land down under," this is their way of celebrating Christmas at the opposite end of the calendar.
I feel like I do the same thing every year because I have to plan the Christmas cantata during the middle of the summer.
If you want a "sneak peek" at the Christmas musical for this year, go to www.wordmusic.com click on the Christmas musical: 'Noel,' and you can listen to excerpts from the musical.
It's fun and you won't want to miss this one.
