it came upon the midnight clear…

that’s, hands-down, my favorite christmas song.

christmas songs i can’t stand? winter wonderland, silver bells, the christmas song.

other songs i love? what child is this? (i also like greensleeves.), bring a torch, jeanette, isabella; i saw three ships come sailing in.

right now i have to get ready for midnight mass (which is being held at 11 pm for purposes beyond my imaginings). this is going to be the hard part of this christmas – going to mass without my daddyhead. followed by how giddy my dad got by giving christmas presents.

those of you who are not celebrating the christmas, but lighting the lights, happy chanukah – have fun at the matzo ball dance.

(and crazy mara, we’re totally doing latkes and discovering universal truths again when i get back.)

for those of you celebrating neither,howdy!

but i’m not here to talk about christmas music or how i’m reacting to christmas this year or other non-christmas holidays.

i’m actually posting to say, merry christmas friends, family, and fleeting strangers. be assured i have warm gooey feelings for most of my blogdience (that worked better in my head), and wish you joy and happiness.

  2. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Hope you’re having a great time in warm southern california. It’s raining hounds up here in northern ca. (more northern than normal).

  3. Thank you for the well wishes. Happy holidays to you, too.

  4. I like the Christmas song! It was written while drnking whisky during a July heat wave.

    I also like Have yourself a Merry little Christmas, and now that I’ve heard my kids sing it, I love Santa Claus is Coming to town.

    Merry Christma, HF!
