Y’all… it’s Christmas week!!!! Can you even believe it? I swore I heard reindeer hooves on my rooftop the other night… and madre in her MuuMuu, and I in my paper bag of embarrassment had just settled down for a long winter’s nap (SERIOUSLY!?!?!? Is that a thing? I thought it was called hibernation, but y’all… I’m totally the first one to volunteer to nap through winter… straight up! Call me, Sleep Clinic!) I guess it’s time I start my Christmas shopping. Oops… did I do that!?
Tonight we had our annual “Neighborhood Christmas Program,” which is an ironic name since it really isn’t a neighborhood. If so it’s a really spread out neighborhood… basically it’s a bunch of folk from two different wards congregating in the church to listen to talented folk sing and play Christmas music. I look forward to it every year because it always brings the Christmas spirit. This town has a bunch of talented folk. So many they usually leave a chunk of the talent out… let’s face it… the program would be 47 hours long if every talented person participated.
I had to laugh, though… of the 7 performances, 3 of us chose the exact same song… Oh Holy Night for the win! They should have just changed the name of the program to Oh Holy Night… Again and Again and Again… and if you don’t like it, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Y’all neighborhood peoples… let’s coordinate it up for next year… why don’t we all sing different versions of Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer! Start practicing now… I’m already borrowing one of Madre’s camel-print muumuus for the occasion.
I wasn’t complaining, though. I’d have to say that Oh Holy Night is on my list of top 5 favorite Christmas songs EVER… EVER! This week I’ve decided to share those top 5 favorite Christmas songs, in no particular order… mostly because no one will be reading blogs this week… and secondly, because I love Christmas music! There are countless versions of this song… one of my favorite is definitely Celine Dion’s version. She has the gift of SANGING… no doubt about it.
Question of the Day: Do you have a favorite version of this song? Tell me whose version I’m missing out on in the comments!
Welcome to the Naaaayyyyyy-borhood Christmas party! 😛 That’s right… I did it.
