christmas spirit

Last week I decided that we are close enough to Christmas to make it officially acceptable to force my family to listen to Christmas music and goodness gracious they'd enjoy it TO! So I made an pandora station, and had Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole and Fred Astaire and all those lovely old chaps playing, and  one day last week, I was dancing around and singing and squealing and in absolute heaven, and I happened to mention that this particular song was sung by Bing Crosby. 

*Bing Crosby's "Oh Come all Ye Faithful begins* 
Me: See, we like him, Bing Crosby is good. Everybody can handle listening to this right?
John: Oh, He's okay, I guess. Okay.
Me: But he's like Fred Astaire... Old and absolutely amazing!!!
John: Bing Crosby... Bing Crosby...Crosby... He wouldn't happen to be Fanny's brother would he?

mama insists that christmas music isn't supposed to be played until after Thanksgiving, but I am just as adamant that we don't get to listen to christmas music very long as it is, so we will start listening to it now, in small doses at least. :) Everyone is putting up with it, but I am enjoying it so much. :) :)


  1. I love Christmas music. I haven't ever tried any of Nat King Cole's or Fred Astaire's, but I love Nat King Cole's voice! I like to wait till after Thanksgiving though ;) so I'm looking forward to hearing Garth Brooks, Jackie Evancho, and others. . . . :)

    1. I should add Jackie to the list. :) I had forgotten about her.

      I know I should really have waited, but Christmas music is just so fun. :)

  2. Hahaha! My family is the same way! We never listen to Christmas music until like Christmas! Except I love it, so I listen to it on an MP3 or something! I like your blog! I'm following via Bloglovin!
