On Saturday, before opening my marzipan advent-calendar, I changed my radio station to 94.3fm and have been rooking around my home to a constant supply to Christmas songs ever since.
I have to admit a big part of loving Christmas so much has to do with the cheesy music and sing-a-long texts, and as soon as I hear “Last Christmas” by Wham for the first time I know Christams is near.
So on Saturday and Sunday I emptied out my chest (yes a real wooden chest) of decorations and started christmasfiying my home. I hung up stockings, stars and even some beautiful shoes (well skates) and frolicked around the place in yuletide glee.
On Sunday I lit the first candle and had breakfast in the warm glow of the flame already looking forward to lighting the next one this weekend. I sat and wrote my first Christmas cards, packed my first parcel (New Zealand is along way away) all the while humming, singing and often even yowling along to every Song Christmas FM threw my way.
Sounds delightful…We fully intended to put up our tree and decorations this past weekend …unfortunately we both are sick right now so can’t do it….hoping for this coming weekend… As you I love to write my Christmas cards while listening to Christmas music….Diane
Oh do get better soon, but better now then at Christmas time. And yes Christmas music is the best … get well
I leave my radio tuned to the station that plays nonstop Christmas music. By the time the holidays are over I will of heard every song at least 20 times.
I think 100 times is more accurate
Sounds so very cozy! Usually I’m not big on the christmas cards but this year I’m definitely going to send out to the people I love. Enjoy and thanks 🙂
