We put the finishing touches (thrown popcorn which will most likely be mostly eaten in the next month) on our tree tonight. Through the miracle and magic of the internet we did it with my parents who were also throwing popcorn on their tree. Thrown popcorn is a Giles tradition. The inside of our house is decorated. We’ll get to the outside next week. So while it definitely doesn’t feel like Christmas, we were in the 90s this week and Iddo wondered why we were decorating for Christmas if it was still too hot to hang out in my hammock, it’s beginning to look like Christmas. The kids even got their Christmas pajamas tonight.
So here’s some Christmas music to get us started. I dread radio Christmas music. It just sucks. But I’ll gladly put together my own mix and listen all month long.
This is a chill-causing arrangement of one of my favorites:
We’re really big on joy at our house, especially this year, so of course this one makes my mix:
What new favorites or old classics would you put on your mix?
