Home For The Holidays
Hi, everyone! I’d like to thank Belle’s Book Bag for letting me share my thoughts with you today. Sip some hot Chocolate, with the new peppermint marshmallows (or peppermint schnapps) light a fire in the fireplace and turn on the Christmas tunes!
At this time of year we see a lot of posts about Christmas; Traditions, Decorations, Food(yum) but what I’d like to talk to you about today are Christmas Carols. Do you love them or hate them? I heartily confess I am a Christmas music junkie! I can’t wait until Thanksgiving when I can break out the Christmas CD’s and play them on repeat until everyone in the house is complaining of bleeding eardrums. The stereo in my car is defunct, so I bring my laptop with me to play carols as I drive ( yes I am that crazy!)
I hear people complaining about Christmas Carols on the radio and I scratch my head, thinking how can you not like Christmas music?
I love them all, from sweet and sappy: The Christmas Shoes, The Christmas Guest, The Gift (Maria’s song) and A baby Changes Everything
The classics: Frank singing Baby It’s Cold Outside, Santa Baby, Bing’s White Christmas, and of course, the all time classic Nat King Cole’s The Christmas Song
Fast: Jingle Bell Rock, Up On he Housetop, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, by the fabulous Brenda Lee
Slow: Tennessee Christmas, Angels Among Us, The Friendly Beasts, and one of my all time favorites, Mary Did You Know
And Funny: I made a CD for my grandchildren to listen to in the car (with their mother, hahaha) with fun and funny Christmas: The Chipmunks, I’m getting’ Nothin’ For Christmas, All I want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth , and I love these, but some of the newer country songs crack me up. Jeff Foxworthy’s 12 Days of Christmas, Leroy the Redneck Reindeer, and Merry Christmas From the Family (this is so my life! Lol)
Music is one of the things that make Christmas special for me. So tell me, How about you? What is your favorite Christmas Carol and why?
My story Heart of a Soldier is not a Christmas story, but one major scene does take place on Christmas Eve. If you are looking for a nice short read as you snuggle in front of your fireplace this holiday season, I hope you’ll give it a try.
Thanks again for letting me stop by today.
Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Joyous Yule, and may your Holiday season be filled with joy, family, love and music!
