Hello all, I am going to assume your Thanksgiving went just as planned.
My day consisted mostly of cider, football, pumpkin pie and The Godfather. I could not ask for anything more on such a relaxing day.
Are you one of those people that put up the Christmas tree a few days after Halloween? I will not judge you if you do that. However, I like waiting until the day after Thanksgiving to start bringing out the ornanments.I usually have to work the next day, but this year I have the day off. My co-worker and I did an awesome job last year, no?
You should see our tree, Al adds a really nice touch.
I do not usually over-do it on the holiday cheer, but there is one thing that is truly magical in the month of December. Christmas songs! I love everything about them.
Because today is my day off, I wanted to stop by and say hi and give you a short list of my favorite Christmas songs. I gave Thanksgiving a chance and now it is time to sing carols! I have not done a Friday Five in awhile, so I figured it would be nice to bring it back. 🙂
Without further ado,
(My) Five Favorite Christmas Songs
1. Frank Sinatra- Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Call me stereotypical, but nothing is more inviting and warm than the old croony voice of Ol’ Blue Eyes himself. What I wouldn’t do to be able to attend one of his live concerts.
2. Dean Martin- Baby It’s Cold Outside
Tell me one person who can sing this better than Dean Martin and I will personally fly over to your location and bow to you. Because it can not be done. 😉
3. Eartha Kitt- Santa Baby
Marilyn Monroe who? Eartha Kitt, the original singer, kills this version. This song adds a little spice to the fuzzy-feel good Christmas list.
4. Nat King Cole- The Christmas Song
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire + Nat King Cole = enough said.
5. Tony Bennett- Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
To my recollection, this is the first song I remember actually knowing the words to. I tried to include most of my favorite artists and this fit the bill!
Don’t you feel all warm and cozy now? I am in the middle of making my holiday playlist now so I can listen in my car. It is going to be really fun for all my friends. 🙂
PS: The Christmas part of Godfather just came on, how fitting.
