‘Tis the Season for Singing

‘Tis the Season for Singing

Have you decked your halls? Do you have frosted windowpanes? Is it cold outside, Baby? Well then. In the air, there’s a feeling of Christmas. As tempting as it is to stay inside, roasting chestnuts on an open fire with your cocoa and DVD player, the holidays are about spreading cheer and there are choirs of angels anxious to make spirits bright. 15 Bytes has compiled a list to make your holiday concert searching a little simpler. There’s something for everyone, so don your gay apparel, head out into the winter wonderland and see some concerts this year. If you don’t, you know those carolers will come to your door anyway, asking you to bring them some figgy pudding.
