One of the best things about the holiday season is the Christmas Carols. I love, love, love them. I could listen to them all year long, but the fam. would have fits, so I try to control myself until Thanksgiving. After that its a free for all. I listen while I bake Christmas goodies. I listen while I do housework. I listen in the car where the audience is held captive to my enthusiastic sing a long efforts. Hey, if they don't like it they can walk to where ever I am hauling them to.
This is my time, baby. Tis the season where mama sings and ain't no one gonna stop me. How could a person resist tapping your toe along with Rockin Around The Christmas Tree or Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. And I have a hard time not getting a tear in my eye when I hear, Mary Did You Know or Silent Night. Then you have the transnationals, Hark The Herald Angels Sing, Oh little Town Of Bethlehem, Oh Come All Ye Faithful and all the rest, that bring back memories of when kids were allowed to have school plays and programs that reflected the true meaning of Christmas.
There are a whole lot of new favorites to enjoy, Just Put a Ribbon In Your Hair, It Must Have Been The Mistletoe. And the song that I love to torture my kids with, Let's Be Naughty and Save Santa the Trip. I like to sing that one to their dad and watched them all start pretending to gag and vomit. It's one of the best traditions of the season so I am breaking out the iPod and plugging it in.
Merry Christmas From My House To Yours.
