This year I’ve had some trouble getting into the Christmas spirit. My dad has been really ill for the past few months and its taken its toll on the family. I have a tree, but I haven’t bothered to decorate it. Currently my boxes of ornaments are scattered all over the dining room. But I’m starting to come around. Pops is feeling getting a bit better and will probably get to spend Christmas with us. He wasn’t up to being there for Thanksgiving and it wasn’t the same. I rely on my dad big time and its hard not having him around. Plus that means I have to ask my poor husband to fix stuff for me. Let’s just say he’s not a Mr. Fix-It.
So I’ve been listening to a lot of Christmas music to get myself into the holiday spirit. The current playlist:
She & Him – The Christmas Waltz – I have a love/hate relationship with Zooey Deschanel but that’s another story. Here’s a love moment.
Amy Winehouse – I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
Otis Redding -White Christmas
John Lennon – Happy Christmas – War is Over
The Kinks – Father Christmas
Tom Petty- Christmas All Over Again
The Ramones – Merry Christmas, I don’t want to fight tonight
the Killers -Don’t shoot me Santa
The Hives & Cyndi Lauper – Christmas Duel
Stevie Wonder – What Christmas Means to me
U2 -It’s Christmas -Baby Please Come Home
The Eels – Everything’s Gonna Be Cool This Christmas
Joshua Hyslop – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
And the winner for weirdest/creepiest/worst Christmas song:
Prince – Another Lonely Christmas
Wtf Prince? I apologize for subjecting everyone to this. But someone else needed to hear it.
