My name is Meaghan and I am struggling with “LOHSD” (“Lack Of Holiday Spirit Disorder”). After a very busy year of touring my music abroad and at home in Canada, writing songs for a new record, hosting a fabulous Songwriting Camp for girls, buying a home, getting engaged to my fella and graduating from University; my soul is full but a bit weary going into this holiday season.
Last week, I decided to dip into my Christmas shopping.
I went to a rather LARGE shopping center in Western Canada and found myself standing between a Booster Juice and The Source with a general sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. I grabbed my phone and pulled up my Christmas list, the one I had made on my flight into town of all of people who I love, and who have loved me through one of the busiest, most hectic years of my life. I looked up and I saw a zoo of shoppers, stressed families, screaming kids and people running between the shops with bags and scarves flying behind them as they zoomed about.
In that moment, I felt like jamming my booster juice mega-straw through my eye (the lights in shopping malls always bring out the best in me…).
I took a breath, got back on the escalator and left the shopping center without a single gift in hand.
I can’t be the only one who feels this kind of “transaction-detachment”. It is undeniable that there is that special feeling we yearn for around the holidays: the moment that the Christmas tree lights come on, those first few flakes of falling snow, the church choir singing ‘Silent Night’, classic holiday re-runs… It’s a feeling that’s hard to describe, but it’s there…
This year, I am launching a Holiday gift offer called “A Song For Your Stocking”, a feel good gift that is sure to bring a smile. A gift you can feel good about without ever having to step into a mall!
On Christmas Eve,I will sit down with my guitar and a cup of peppermint-hot-coca and will record the classic Christmas song of your choice (you get to choose from 3 classic Christmas songs) along with a personalized holiday message for your special someone! No song will be “cookie-cutter” recorded; all songs are sung especially for that special person in your life. This gift is perfect for long distance families and friendships and is sure to bring a smile this winter.
No need to pay for shipping either!
It arrives directly into your loved one’s mailbox on Christmas eve!
Just choose your classic Christmas song at the “perk” station, make sure you input YOUR personal email (I’ll ask you for the recipients email later) , follow the INDIEGOGO secure payment option and I will be in touch over the next two weeks to chat and to get details about who will be receiving the gift and what you want your special message to be!
Thanks for spreading that ‘good old time feelin’ and have a fabulous holiday season!
