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.
- 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
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!
