I LOVE CHRISTMAS!
Some like to call me a big kid. I accept that (upon occasions). I was reading this post by my online friend Larry and realized someone had it worse than me. I mean…I have had some select Christmas CDs sitting on my dresser, but didn’t start listening to them until Friday on the way home from Ohio. I am going to highlight a song later in this post from what has become my favorite Christmas CD to listen to.
In my Thanksgiving post, I stated that I would be posting a Christmas post every day from this point until Christmas day. I did that last year and it was fun…so much so, I thought I would do it again. My posts will be wide and varied. Some will be music-oriented. Some will be serious. Some will be downright silly. Some will be memories. Some will be my hopes for the future (Christmas wishes). I would like to ask others to join me in this venture. I will be posting every day except Saturday and Sunday, unless something strikes me. My hope? I want this to be a fun time. A time of reflection. A time of observing. A time of awareness. A time of excitement. Why? Simple. Many of us adults get so bogged down with tons of other things (many of them year long struggles) that we lose the magic that is Christmas.
SO JOIN WITH ME AND SELE WON’T YOU? EITHER IN READING AND COMMENTING, OR IN WRITING A MONTH LONG SERIES OF POSTS ABOUT CHRISTMAS PAST, CHRISTMAS PRESENT, AND CHRISTMAS FUTURE AND ITS IMPACT UPON YOUR LIFE.
Here is my first entry. It is a song that sums up the “fun” Christmas should be. Serious? Depends on your perspective. And before you ask: yes, this singer was an influential part of my music makeup during my youth and I still listen to his music.
