2016 Christmas Jams

Hey y'all!!!! I am back. I know I know. I did it again. It has been way too long yet again. But it is my favorite time of the year and after talking about blogging with one of my dear friends, I have decided to put my self on a schedule so I can get back to lifting us all and what better way to jump back into the game than to write about Christmas music??...more

NaBloPoMo (11/2016) - Day 25: Okay! Now it's official....

 If  you've been keeping up with my blog posts of late, then you know that I'm a huge fan of Hallmark during this time of year. Their "Countdown to Christmas" has been going on since Halloween. And I have been all in! The Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries have been on my "favorite channels" list ever since the countdown started. Of the 37 recordings on my DVR, 35 are Christmas movies. Yes, I rewatch them over and over. (It's part of what has gotten me through the weeks since the election.)...more

NaBloPoMo (11/2015) - Day 28: Starting things off with Dominick and Suzy

 For some weird reason, I'm really tired tonight and I can't quite get my brain working enough to write a meaningful blog post. I's not like many of my others are all that meaningful. But at least I had a thread of an idea swimming through my brain. Tonight...not so much.But here's one thing that happened today:  Christmas season officially started in my world....more

What Are Your Favorite Christmas Songs?

As far as I’m concerned, there are two types of people out there:Those who love Christmas music, and idiots....more

The Best (and Worst!) Christmas Songs

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and with just under two weeks until the Jolly Old Elf arrives, it's really beginning to sound like it, too.It's at this point in the year that I really begin to enjoy Christmas music (for the most part, anyway), and love hearing the strains of O Holy Night or Bono belting out "well, tonight thank God it's them, instead of you" from my iPod or the all-Christmas station several times a day....more

Day 12: Beautifully, Moving, A Capella Music from Pentatonix

This group sings "The Little Drummer Boy" a capello. They took me by surprise and moved me to tears as I listened to their strong, stirring voices.  Pentatonix's music is pure gift, a gift sung from their hearts, for the hearts of their listeners. ...more

Sounds of the Season

Where I live, we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving or Halloween (although some people are trying to make it an event), so there aren’t demarcations between those celebrations and Christmas. We do, however, have an Independence holiday on the first day of November - and the day after that, the radio station that I listen to all day began to play Christmas music....more

It's Beginning to Sound a Lot Like Christmas Already!

In six short days, a war is going to break out in my otherwise (somewhat) peaceful household. November 1 starts the annual “War of the Christmas Music.” ...more
I love Christmas music too, and agree that it just gives me the warm fuzzies. And if I might ...more

Christmas Music: Love It or Hate It?

I woke up one morning early in November and felt some weird desire to listen to Christmas music. It scared me. I tweeted it, hoping to release the desire into the world and have it disappear. Didn't work. I have never hated Christmas music but I have been known to rant about radio stations that switch to holiday music programming that lasts for weeks on end. And, I've also been known to rant about hearing the same canned Christmas music in store after store after store....more
I love listening to Christmas music. I do switch between 2 local stations that play Christmas ...more
