Ok, it is officially ok to begin celebrating Christmas. Poor Thanksgiving. Everyone just wants it out of the way. Yeah, yeah.. food and family and thankfulness--NEXT! Let's go get our treee! Anyway, I have actually been celebrating for weeks now but now I can do it openly. One major part of celebrating, for me, is playing some good Christmas tunes. Brooke made me an awesome Xmas mix last year and it's becoming probably my favorite Christmas CD. While listening, I started thinking about my favorite Christmas songs. Then that got to me thinking about my least favorite. Here are my faves:
Favorite fun Christmas song: Sleigh Ride, probably. I mean, you can't listen to this and not be happy and feel an uncontrollable urge to dance in some way. Also on this list: Biing Crosby's Jingle Bells with his backup singers. Oh man. If you don't know this, listen now. (it plays on in the background Christmas morning of A Christmas Story) I mean, they sing "brrrrup!" how can you not love that.
Favorite pretty Christmas song: Silent Night of course. Also, O Holy Night and What Child Is This?
Least favorite songs: I'm not a big fan of Up On the Housetop. It's just lame and boring. Also, Here We Come a-Wassailing. Boo.. take your wassail and shove it. Plus, i just hate the word wassail. Sean just informed me he hates I Saw 3 Ships. He also doesn't like Little Drummer Boy but I do.
So what are yours? Do you agree? disagree? I'm trying to think of others that bug me...
*(Sean's mom apparently hates We Wish You a Merry Christmas especially for that weird pudding part.. "we won't go until we get some, we won't go until we get some..." but I think it's frawesome. Demanding carolers. )
