…my aunt’s birthday!
Happy Birthday Charleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeene!
Today is also “Go Caroling Day”
My favorite holiday songs are:
Santa Baby (Earth Kitt version)
O Holy Night (I get chills whenthat high note is hit)
Up on the House Top (Gene Autry and The Jacksons)
The Twelve Days of Christmas featuring John Denver and The Muppets
Wonderful Christmas time (Simply, Having, a wonderful Christmas Time!)
Rocking Around the Christmas Tree
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Jingle Bell Rock
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
Some carols are a bit depressing.
Depending on who sings the song can make the difference between four minutes of cheer and egg nog from the carton and four minutes of wishing for laced nog in a glass. These are some of the songs that always make me want to curl up and cry like a lost little girl in the mall.
Sarah McLaughlin’s version of I’ll Be Home for Christmas.
The Little Drummer Boy always makes me want to hug bad kids.
The Jacksons singing Give Love on Christmas Day makes me want to make amends for sins old and new.
And the coup de gras, It’s Christmas Charlie Brown. The Peanuts always depress me. It’s something about these kids all alone with seemingly no parental supervision. When Christmastime is Near comes on I lose it. I want t atone for each and every wrong, real or perceived and depending on my mood, we don’t watch many Peanuts.
