Song Details

This is Aline’s signature song! It is a heartwarming setting that celebrates Christmas and Hanukkah…”season of light, season of cheer, season of peace, may it last throughout the year.” Choirs across the country have come to love this arrangement and sing it year after year as a winter holiday tradition.
