These Are A Few Of My Fave Holiday Things
1. The Christmas tree. It’s 9 foot tall. It’s a hell-acious pain to put up. But it’s gorgeous when it’s all done. Glittering and sparkling with lights. I love to sit in the living room with a good glass of wine and let the peace of the tree flow over me.
2. My fave ornament
I actually have a ton of fave ornaments- the boots from Nashville, the Santa ornament, all the birds that are in the tree at various places. But the ornament that makes me the happiest is:
This ornament is my sweet niece’s ornament- and I proudly hang it on the tree. She’s my heart- and reminds me that the holidays should be such a magical time for children.
3. Fav holiday drink:
Wine. Blondie from Cup’s Coffee House. Hot Chocolate ( made at home because I add all the extras- to make it a cup of happiness.)
4. Fav Christmas Movie:
The Christmas Story. I re-watch Ernest Saves Christmas every once in a while to pay homage to my childhood. The Family Stone. Mickey’s Christmas Carol. How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Home Alone.
5. Fav Holiday Eats:
Chex Mix and lace cookies.
6. Holiday Reads:
How The Grinch Stole Christmas. I’ve been reading it the past couple of years to my Sweet A- and I think it’s a sweet niece/aunt tradition.
7. Christmas music:
The Eagles: Please Come Home For Christmas
A Very Ally Christmas: Featuring Vonda Shepard (specifically, THIS CHRISTMAS)
Rod Stewart: Merry Christmas Baby
An assortment of traditional holiday songs and their more “pop” versions.
