It's the Holiday Season...
It's the holiday season
With the whoop-de-do and hickory dock
And don't forget to hang up your sock....
I don't know about you, but I can't seem to get enough of 103.3 these days - the 24/7 Christmas music radio station. My son and I have really been enjoying Christmas music. We get these silly songs in our heads and sing them throughout the day.
For we need a little Christmas, right this very minute
Candles in the window, Carols at the Spinet,
Yes we need a little Christmas, right this very minute,
We need a little Christmas now!
So our humble, mostly Jewish home has become a festive Christmas-loving bonanza. We are out of control and having a lot of fun with it.
Wreaths are hung, garland decorates our front porch and stairway, we even ventured to the Christmas tree farm today. Henry got to cut down and decorate his first Christmas tree.
He told the babysitter tonight, "Isn't it beautiful?". We hosted our first holiday gathering last night. About 25 parents and teachers from our son's school joined us for Cosmopolitans and Sparkling wine. Next week my mom will visit. On Christmas Eve we will host a celebration family and friends. Who says it needs to be stressful!? Just tune in and sing along...
City sidewalk, busy sidewalks,
dressed in holiday style.
In the air there's a feeling of Christmas.
Children laughing, people passing,
meeting smile after smile,
and on every street corner you'll hear:
Silver bells, silver bells,
It's Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day!
