Ok, I kind of checked out there for a week or so... sorry about that. I went down to Palm Springs for Thanksgiving and got a little caught up in the sun and relaxation. To be fair, this was the really the first time since we bought the place a year ago that we actually spent the whole time playing and not working! But enough of that...
I did finally respond to your comments on my last post- I have really begun to love the back and forth of the comment section, on everyone's blog it seems. And I am now ready to jump back into the fray.
So, without further ado-
It's Musical Monday!!! The feature that appears here with some regularity is back today!
Today's theme is Christmas songs. Some are great. Some are annoying. But what I want to really get at today is that ONE Christmas song that really hits you. The one that when you hear it, then it's really Christmas time. So, today, I'm asking for your active participation. Hit me up in the comments and tell me what your song is!!!
For me that song is Dan Fogelberg's 'Same Old Lang Syne'. Until I hear it, I usually don't feel like the Christmas season has really arrived. It always takes me by surprise when I hear it come on the radio and it always makes me stop and listen. It has to be spontaneous and coming through the radio or it doesn't count for me. As an example: last year I was putting up sun filtering curtains in my Palm Springs condo and 'Same Old Lang Syne' came on and suddenly I wasn't in the desert trying to block out sun that comes blaring into the windows at 6:30am; I was watching snow turn into rain. Like most of my holiday memories, this song is so very bittersweet. I just love it. It encapsulates so many of my feelings about Christmas time.
So now you... What's YOUR Christmas song? Or if not Christmas, then what holiday music does something magical for you???
