It is with joy and great pride that I present to you this brand new anthology of Christmas and the Holiday Season, eighteen (18) unpublished French songs according to the Orff approach, themes specific to childhood, subjects from our cultural heritage and our fond memories of youth.

And what could be more enjoyable than humming merrily Christmas tunes!
In our contemporary context in education, an adjustment was necessary. Traditional Christmases were almost always presented according to the religious dimension. This is quite normal, since Christmas was originally a Judeo-Christian celebration, and has been for centuries.
Without banishing everything, what could be more commendable than continuing to advocate these beautiful human and universal values such as love, peace, kindness, sharing, but in a context adapted to our society today, in a context which now wants to be profane in our schools.
Hence the challenge of publishing this new collection, with these brand new songs, while rediscovering our tender characters, our culture, our values and symbolism as well as our Franco-Quebec traditions which rocked our childhood and which continue their work.
