Hi there! It’s officially December! Woo! And with that comes the season of Advent and the preparation for Christmas, which is a joyous time of year. As such, I want to celebrate it with all of you cool cats! To do that, I’ll being doing an Advent Calendar on my blog, which was inspired by the spectacular Solveig, who is having guests post on her blog in the spirit of the season. I’m a little late on that ball. Even so, I’ll be doing posts every day that talk about the wonders of the holiday season.
Additionally, I’ve made a couple lists, which will be posted at the bottom of every Advent Calendar post. One is a list of movies I want to watch before Christmas. The other is a list of activities I want to do before Christmas. As I complete a movie or activity, I’ll cross it off the list.
The holiday season is here! Yay! That means decorating a Christmas tree. It means buying and wrapping presents to place under that gorgeous Christmas tree. It means baking lots of cookies, shaping them into little trees and stars, and lathering them in lots of frosting and sprinkles. It means filling the house with the luscious smells of freshly cooked Christmas dinner. (For me that’s a great big turkey!) It’s also the time to spread holiday cheer to as many people as you can.
And one of the best ways to spread a little holiday cheer is through music! Christmas carols, in my case, are so much fun. Some of my favorite Christmas songs are as follows!
Santa Baby, Sung by Ertha Kitt
White Christmas, Sung by Bing Crosby
Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, Sung by Brenda Lee
Run Run Rudolph, Sung by Chuck Berry
Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy, Sung by Pentatonix
