A Christmas Must Have

For me, Christmas just isn’t Christmas without Boney M.

When I was growing up, my mom would always bring out the Boney M Christmas LP when we would decorate the house or set up the Christmas tree. It became my Christmas anthem. I know all the words to all the songs and just hearing the opening strain of “Mary’s Boy Child” lifts my spirits. Since her death, this album means even more to me. It brings me closer to her during Christmas, a time when I miss her a lot, and it brings me hope. All those disco and beat-driven Christmas tunes build a bridge between us and I know she is still with me, dancing at my side.
