Decidedly December – 2020

So I missed posting yesterday because we went and got our Christmas tree. Making it up by cramming in a whole bunch of stuff today.

Music was the theme for Countdown to Christmas and List was #SoCS so here’s a list of some of my favorite Christmas songs in no particular order and by no means complete:

  • Old Toy Trains – Rafi – makes me cry because I can see our kids up on stage singing it when they were little.
  • Merry Christmas from the Family – Rosie O’Donnell and the Dixie Chicks (now the politically correct just “Chicks”) Cracks me up.
  • Little Drummer Boy – David Bowie and Bing Crosby
  • Jingle Bell Rock –
  • Santa Baby –
  • Silver Bells
  • The Christmas Song
  • Christmas Through Your Eyes – Gloria Estefan
  • Must Be Santa – Rafi
  • The First Noel
  • Greensleeves

The prompt for December Reflections was: Biggest lesson from 2020. Maybe not a lesson but just a reminder that nothing in life is certain and you need to be able to roll with the changes.

Today’s prompt for the Christmas Countdown is plants. Has to be poinsettia (which I always want to spell with a t, like pointsetta). My dad had a big poinsettia plant growing in our front yard. He was so proud of that thing. He worked for a florist and every year we would take about 15 or 20 poinsettia plants to the church to decorate the altar. I felt so special being able to go into the back rooms that no one usually sees.

And finally, December Reflections is Ornament. I did that the other day with the ornaments that I have been using for the past 40 years, but I also have other ones that mean a lot to me. I haven’t finished decorating the tree yet so I’ll post more pictures of ornaments when we get them out.

There, caught up for now. How about you? Favorite Christmas song? Do you want to spell poinsettia with a t? Share!

    Now I am going to have to put some Christmas music on and think about what my favorite Christmas song is. I enjoyed reading your list.

    Janet, what a joyful surprise to have you visiting my blog, thank you! How have you been?

    I have many favorite Christmas songs, and I just discovered a new (to me) one: Leona Lewis, one more sleep, I can’t believe it’s been out there for several years, and I’ve never heard it until very recently.

    December is a special month and I like reading Christmas time stories. I read them every year 🙂
    Wish you and your family a happy Christmas. My daughter and family live in Germany and she says her children’s school celebrated St Nicholaus Day last week.

      Hi Lakshmi. I used to read Christmas stories to the kids all the time. I have a couple of different books that we used. So fun with the kids cuddled up together! Thanks for stopping by.

    What, no “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”? I like just about anything from “The Andy Williams Christmas Album,” myself…
