21 Up Goes My Christmas Tree!

I'm a little early this year. Our radio was switched on to Lite FM. They were playing beautiful love songs from the 80s that night. The mood was so right for an activity-filled night. Hubby and I decided to put the Christmas tree up.

We went with the purple, pink, blue and silver balls. The gift under the tree is from my aunt - it was given to us in September. Yes, funnily early. I have resisted opening it. An 'A' for patience? Well, I don't want to have NO presents to open on Christmas night!

In 2013, I had visualised a tree of gold. But ... I missed the clearance sale for the gold baubles! Next year then, if I don't change my mind ;)

Our Christmas Tree

Baby, It's Cold Outside is one of my favourite tunes. This version is sung by Idina Menzel and Michael Buble. The kids in the video are adorable - makes my insides all warm and fuzzy. Who needs hot cocoa with songs like these ❤


Have you got a favourite holiday song?

    1. Merry Christmas in advance to you too, Rose. What a beautiful tree you have, as tall as mine, I think. I bet Jamie will be super excited if you did put it up! ;)

    So many great holiday songs out there, but here are a few of my faves from my own Christmas playlist:
    1. Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You
    2. Nat King Cole - The Christmas Song
    3. Ella Fitzgerald - The First Noel
    4. Stevie Wonder - What Christmas Means to Me
    5. Frank Sinatra - I'll Be Home For Christmas
    6. Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmastime

    Ok..I could go on, but I'll stop there. If you haven't heard these, I hope you'll listen to them this Christmas! :)
