i’d be lying if i told you that i hadn’t been listening to christmas music since october… i can’t help it! have you heard leslie odom jr. and kacey musgraves’ christmas albums?!? i have those two albums always on rotation regardless of the season, they are per-fec-tion. anyways…now that we are officially post-turkey coma, i’ve decided to gather all of my favorite holiday songs to play every minute of every day until someone tells me i need a psychoanalysis (my roommates). hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season!
i remember as kids, my brother and i were always the first ones awake in the house, we would sneak down stairs before everyone woke up to see what “santa” had left in our stockings. one year we got caught because cody broke one of our mom’s decorations in the excitement of seeing his stocking filled with giant reese’s peanut butter cups…rookie mistake…huge. it’s interesting to see how christmas mornings change as you get older. this year we took a pretty mellow approach to christmas, with everyone waking up in different places on christmas morning, we didn’t really have an agenda. i remember someone saying, “let everyone wake up and we’ll go from there” so we did just that; woke up, had breakfast for lunch and opened presents in the late afternoon. hope everyone had a lovely holiday season.
