Certain sounds of the season launch us into holiday spirit

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions. 

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At the Bluffton Branch Library in Bluffton Village, we asked: “What holiday song puts you in the spirit of the season?

Shannon Kesecker, Bluffton: “Joy to the World.”

Debbie Henderson, Beaufort: “Holly, Jolly Christmas.”

Wendy Purdy, Bluffton: “Driving Home for Christmas,” by Chris Rea.











Beth Dragoone, Bluffton: “A Christmas Song,” aka “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire.”

Sharon Bomgardner, Bluffton: “O Holy Night.”
