Continuing with the 12 days of Christmas Blogging Challenge with Scale Simple.
Today’s theme: Favorite Christmas Movie or Song
Since I already gave you all my favorite Christmas movies (see post ), I am going with favorite Christmas Song.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas music! Here in the DC area we have a station 97.1 WASH FM that plays only Christmas music from Thanksgiving all the way through Christmas!!!! I don’t start listening to it until December 1st but from the 1st until the 25th it is Christmas music all day….well except when I have to listen to the Absolutely Mindy Show of Kid’s Place Live-lol.
Christmas music brings such Joy to my heart!
It isn’t Christmas until I hear:
Silent Night by the Temptations
Jackson 5-Santa Clause is coming to town
All I Want for Christmas by Mariah Carey
Preacher’s Wife Soundtrack
Little Drummer Boy (this is a newer version by Pentatonix that is lovely)
Baby It’s Cold Outside
My newest favorite holiday song in Kelly Clarkson’s Underneath the Tree
Joy to the World Song by Whitney Houston
Speaking of Joy, that just happens to be the Wednesday Word hosted by Deb.
a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.
Although the word joy means a feeling of great pleasure and happiness, it brings a mixed feeling of happiness and sadness for me. You see, I had a childhood best friend named Joy, who was murdered in January 2002. She was a spit fire, free spirit who loved everyone and did everything for her children. I miss her every day! In her honor, my daughter’s middle name is Joy and I swear, I see Joy in her everyday. She has Joy’s spit fire personality and I LOVE IT!!!
This season is full of joy and happiness as well! I am looking forward to seeing the joy on the kid’s faces as we dress up in our elf outfits Christmas Eve and bake Santa’s cookies. Of course, I can’t wait to see the joy on their faces when they see the gifts under the tree and let’t not forget the joy as they gleefully rip open those said gifts!!! One of the greatest joys for me actually is when we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus on Christmas morning. This year, my daughter wants to get Jesus something for his birthday….we will see what she comes up with.
What is your favorite Christmas song(s)? Do you feel joy during the season?
I would love to stay connected:
