>I turned on the radio the other day and Christmas music was on the radio. My day was instantly brightened, I love this time of year! Love it, love it, love it! And this year it is even more special because I have a one year old son.
I can’t believe next week is Thanksgiving. Its coming so fast. Now, I am not a huge fan of Thanksgiving. I enjoy cooking, but I hate the eating. I am just not a huge fan of food. (I learned during my Grandma’s visit that I must get that from her.) I seldom eat to really enjoy (except pizza!), I eat to live and I never eat that much. So a large, long meal is not exactly my idea of a good time. Andy hates this about me. Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday. He loves to eat and loves every bit of the large dinner. I guess it still works out because I do love to cook. Though I told him he needs to find someone to join us for Thanksgiving this year because I refuse to cook that big of a meal for the three of us. So, if we don’t have anyone over we may join our church friends dinner.
Sidenote: Have you ever heard a Southerner say “Thanksgiving?” I absolutely LOVE it! I can’t explain it, I can’t even repeat it. But it makes me giggle every time. So next time you run into a Southerner, ask them to say Thanksgiving. 🙂
So, the holidays officially begin for me on my birthday. We usually get our Christmas tree then or as close to that as our schedule will allow. Andy picks out the tree. I am too indecisive and impatient. So I leave that to him. After he sets up the tree he then puts the lights on. He is so particular about this. It takes well over an hour. So, while I wait I watch the first movie of my holiday season. The same one every year.
Also, at this time the Christmas music comes out. Here are a few of my favorites:
And two more of my favorite Christmas movies.
