Every year the day after Halloween, I officially bust out all my Christmas songs. Before you even begin to make fun of me, save your energy. I've heard it all before--Jeremy gives me a hard time every year when he comes in the house and hears Christmas music and Thanksgiving hasn't even passed yet. Not to mention it's been 80* the past couple of days, so it does seem funny listening to songs talking about snow, cold weather and sleigh bells.
Sarah McLachlan's Christmas cd is still one of my favorites and I forget how much I like it until the day after Halloween when I allow myself to start playing it again. So I'm wondering, what's your favorite Christmas album? I need to add more to my collection since I have two WHOLE months I get to listen to it...
If you're in the mood for fun, upbeat music that's NOT Christmas related, then try this album. Remember these guys from the late 90's? I think I like this one even more than I loved their first one back then. I double-dog-dare you to listen to "She's Got the (Who-Hoo)" or "Girls Were Made to Love" without busting out some dance moves. Impossible.
And now, I must flee because the kids are home and have gotten their Halloween trick-or-treating bags down from on top of the fridge and are making off like bandits because they know I'm not patrolling their consumption. If only they knew I've already eaten out all the good stuff. Don't worry---the busting waistband on my shorts is quite aware that I've scarfed everything Butterfinger, Snickers, and Peanut M&M's related.
