It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
With all the stress around Christmas concerning my shop and the big Christmas rush, I would almost forget that the actual holidays are still to come. I have had Christmas on the brain for over a month now, but the Christmas mood wasn't really there yet.
Tonight, however, while I'm sitting here sipping hot chocolate with the lights in the Christmas tree on, some candles lit, and Hanson's Christmas Album "Snowed In" playing, everything suddenly feels a lot more like Christmas!
Do you like our tree? It's full of colorful birdies and other random ornaments. The little bird with the earmuffs (or headphones?) is definitely one of my favorites. I also love this gold, pink & red one I bought at Hema last year though. Can't go wrong with Hema!
What puts you in Christmas mood? Do you like any Christmas music? I am a true Christmas fan, and I love everything about it. The decorations outside, the tackier the better, the music, everything. I have to say I am not a big fan of random R&B music with the words "santa" or "jingle bells" squeezed in somewhere in the lyrics to make it pass as a Christmas song. Christmas songs should be old and cozy, not new and sexy.
