25 of My Favorite Things – Day 9

“I saw momma kissing Santa Clause underneath the mistletoe last night.”

I LOVE this song.  It was one of my all-time favorites growing up.  That and Cindy Lou’s from the movie The Grinch with Jim Carey, rendition of “Where are you Christmas”.  Her voice is awesome and brought tears to my eyes.  I also loved the song when country singer, Faith Hill sang it for her Christmas album.  Check out the YouTube link to Faith singing the song.

If you haven’t guessed yet, my next favorite thing (at least around this time of year) is Christmas Music.

I have a ton of Christmas CDs.  I also have a bunch of cassette tapes.  I remember when The Kid was little I had a Flintstone’s Christmas CD.  Every time I would play that tape (in the car because that was the only place left that we had a cassette player) he would break into a fit of giggles in the backseat.  Now every time I happen to hear Fred Flintstone yell, “Barney!!!!,” I can’t help but remember him trying to sing along.

Even if the kiddie songs aren’t your thing, there are plenty of Christmas CDs to choose from.  I think just about every performing artist has released one at one point in their careers.  In my car right now is Elvis, Michael Buble, Kenny G (saxophone Christmas music), Kenny Chesney, and oh so many more….  They really put me in the Christmas spirit.
