It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Ok, ok, I know it’s already the 2nd and people were freaking out about it yesterday but… it’s DECEMBER already?! Holy smokes time flies! I’m glad it’s December though. I love winter time. I love everything that winter brings: cute sweaters, scarves, peppermint lattes, Christmas music, ski season, winter break, family, dorky traditions, watching friends/family open presents, celebrating NYE, and snow. Speaking of snow, I wore jeans and a light jacket to school yesterday. Then I woke up this morning and there was 3″ of snow was on the ground. Hello random weather changes.

I lovelovelove Christmas music. My two all-time favorites are Carol of the Bells and Oh Holy Night.

Carol of the Bells always reminds me of that classic scene from Home Alone where Kevin is trying to protect his house before the robbers come and break in. I love the Home Alone movies. In fact, I loved the Home Alone movies so much when I was a little girl that when my dad offered to take me on a Daddy-Daughter weekend vacation anywhere in the US, I chose New York City. I wanted to see the Statue of Liberty and stay at the Plaza Hotel (just like where Kevin stayed!).

Oh Holy Night reminds me of my grandfather. My mom’s dad. Every time I hear it, it brings tears to my eyes. It’s such a beautiful song.

What are your favorite Christmas songs?
