Ok, Thanksgiving is over and now it's time to get in Christmas mode. Christmas has got to be my favorite holiday. I just love seeing the looks on my kids' faces when they open their gifts. And I think just the spirit of THAT day is just happy and joyous.
I will admit though, by Christmas day, I have had my fill of the music/carols. HOWEVER, I do have my favorites. And that's what this post is all about.
For those of you who know me...I mean REALLY know me...you are well aware that, at times I can be just a couple french fries short of a Happy Meal...if you know what I mean :-). There is a HUGE silly side of Dawn. I absolutely LOVE to laugh and making others laugh also brings me joy :-). As a matter of fact, both my parents hate when I call them during the day. Normally, they're both at work and they get so embarassed laughing out loud at me on the phone. Weird, huh? :-D There have actually been times when they've simply hung up on me :-).
ANYHOO...back to the subject at hand. I do tend to get a little tired of the Christmas music by the time the day arrives. But there are a few that I could listen to over and over again. And this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPgq_fxaW7U has GOT to be at the top of my list. If you haven't heard this before, you're in for a treat. Again, keep in mind that I LOVE to laugh and this just cracks me up. It's SO fun!!! I think the part I enjoy the most is the guy laughing in the background. ENJOY!!
So, tell me...what are your favorite Christmas/Holiday Songs? Other than the one above, my favs are:
~Celebrate Me Home - By Kenny Loggins (LOVE IT!!)
~Silent Night - By The Temptations (a CLASSIC!)
~I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas - By The Drifters (another classic!)
~This Christmas - By Donny Hathaway (yet another classic!)
11/27 update: I just thought of something else. I LOVE just about all music by Mannheim Steamroller. They are SO cool!!!
I'm sure there are a few others. But they don't come to mind at the moment. I am 41 now you know! I'd love to hear what some of your favorites are. Share those with us, by either putting them here in my comments or listing them on your blog.
Ok, hopefully everyone is in the Christmas spirit now. Have I inspired you? Just a little? :-)
