let’s get the festive cheer going by taking a look at some of those wonderful sounds of Christmas that hearing aids will bring to life in all their richness.

The lights are going up, the snow machines are coming out at shopping malls, and everyone is starting to feel a little merrier. It is, of course, the run-up to Christmas. At Allison Audiology we particularly love this time of year as we get to see the excitement as our patients realize they’ll be able to truly enjoy all the joyous sounds of Christmas this year now that they’ve got hearing aids in place.

So let’s get the festive cheer going by taking a look at some of those wonderful sounds of Christmas that hearing aids will bring to life in all their richness.

Christmas songs to make you merry

With Christmas comes shopping, sometimes frantic, sometimes stressful but those Christmas jingles can help make it a more merry experience. Whether you like it old school with a bit of Andy Williams’ It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of Year or if you like it modern with Justin Bieber’s Mistletoe, they’re always guaranteed to raise a festive smile.

More Christmas songs but live and in person

As the big day approaches, carolers will be out in force. The ding of doorbell starts it off and before you know it you’re listening to the ethereal chorus of Silent Night from a smiling, festively dressed choral group.

The crunch and tear of wrapping paper

The excitement of Christmas goes into overdrive on Christmas morning especially if you’ve got the squeals of kids or grandkids around. But let’s face it, even the grown-ups can’t help ripping off the wrapping paper to get to their gifts.

The oohs and ahhs of Christmas dinner

Whether your family is big on ham, turkey or roast beef for your Christmas feast, those first few mouth-watering bites always bring out satisfied oohs and ahhs. By the time everyone is through their mains with all the trimmings but of course, with room to spare for pie, there’ll be groans of contentment too.

The laughing

Whether it is a family member recalling a funny family anecdote, the pure joy of the kids running around and playing with their new toys, or the sight of grandpa in that silly Christmas hat, that sound of laughter is one of the precious parts of the Christmas experience.

Jana Emola-Austin, Au.D.

Raised in Bryan, Texas, Jana completed her undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University before attending the University of North Texas with an ambition to earn her master’s degree in speech pathology. However, a required audiology class soon set her on a new career path. She became enthralled with the subject and says audiology resonated with her because it involved everything she enjoys – helping people to improve their lives and relationships with others and using technology to make positive impacts. Following this revelation, Jana went on to graduate with her Doctor of Audiology degree. After many years of assisting patients in the clinic on a daily basis, Jana’s main responsibilities at Allison Audiology have shifted to a management role. She now works behind the scenes focusing on administrative, management, and marketing responsibilities.
