Anyone that knows me knows that I can’t deal with Christmas before December. But once December hits, I get excited. I am a normal person.
A somewhat normal person.
Anyway, tonight was the family’s let’s-decorate-the-house-more-than-necessary night. Tree up, lights up, Christmas music blasting. Here’s the Christmas soundcheck: favorites, bonus brilliance, and that one bonus feel-good-about-life song.
