The Lighter Side of Christmas

The Lighter Side of Christmas

In 1993, this piece was performed in concert at Arena Stage in 

Washington, D.C., 

by  Dr. Paul Nahay, to an enthusiastic crowd. Inspired, he played it again in a performance with folk singer Grace Griffith in Temple Hills, MD. At that performance, audience reaction was also good, except for one woman who

ran shrieking out of the room at the moment in the music when the "bomb" hit. In 1996, Peter Billow recorded a song/voice-over on this piece called 

 "Not My Holiday," which is a very funny counterpoint to the commercialism and selfishness of Christmas in America.
