Author Reveals Why Singing Christmas Carols Is More Important Than Ever This Year

WESTFIELD, N.J., Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ In its purest form, the Christmas spirit brings us closer to our fellow human beings and to the idea of peace on earth. But in troubled times where incivility dominates the news and our interactions with others who are different than us can be testy, some people will come down with a bad case of the "bah humbugs."

The current political malaise got Renae Baker thinking about solutions. Affectionately known as Mrs. Christmas, Baker has managed a professional caroling company for decades, and even she had a tough time getting through the holidays during one tumultuous year of her life. Recovering her holiday spirit wasn't easy. She decided to put her insights for doing so into a new Amazon best-selling book, Defeating Scrooge: How to Harness the Power of Christmas Carols to Revive Your Spirit Anytime of the Year(Morway Media).

In an interview, Baker can talk about:

  • Why people should be thinking about Christmas carols all year long
  • The secret legend of "The 12 Days of Christmas"
  • The Christmas carol that prompted soldiers to put down their weapons
  • Ways caroling brings people together from all walks of life including people with different religions
  • Her Spirit Saver Process for reclaiming holiday joy
