It it is time to start thinking “Christmas”. Actually I think of Christmas all year-long as I reflect the birth of Jesus. Then as I start sing Hark the Angels, Joy to the World and other favorite Christmas classics, soon I am singing, I Want A Hippopotamus, Nestor the Christmas Donkey, Deck the Halls, I’ll Be Home For Christmas and of course Here Comes Santa Claus sung by my two favorite singers, Doris Day and Gene Autry. I could type a list of all my favorite Christmas songs. You name it I love it!
I know everyone is going to comment that it is not Thanksgiving yet and you are right! Years ago I thought how sad that we get to only listen to Christmas songs for 30 days out of the year. So I decided to started listening to Christmas songs the first day of school to celebrate the children going back and having the house to myself!
Then the movement of the stores to have Christmas in July came and I was hooked in bringing out the Christmas songs in July.
This year I did start a bit later than usual only recently switching my regular CD’s over to Christmas. But I am proud to say my daughter is following in my footsteps and is also listening to Christmas music.
And you realize that with the Christmas music comes the Christmas movies.
So call me crazy and you would be right because I am crazy for Christmas all year-long!
Enjoy your first Christmas song of the season…now you can get back to thinking about Thanksgiving as I get back to listening Christmas songs on Pandora.
But remember Christmas is only 88 days 7 hours and 37 minutes away (as I write this).
