If you're like my family, we get into music (even more than usual) this time of year. In the last few weeks, my oldest son has taken up guitar (electric, of course) and my middle son spent a few days on our keyboard with my step-mom (who's a music teacher and came to spend Thanksgiving with us), quickly bringing his repertoire up to three merry tunes. We've all been singing in the car more than usual, too. My sons are into singing "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells." Let me just say they've added a BUNCH of verses since I was a kid. A favorite holiday tune that gets my whole family shakin' their stuff is Ricky Martin's "Ay ay ay It's Christmas." Click HERE to watch a video of some folks sorta doing what we do. (Making our own video is now on my To Do list.)
Whether listening to the radio, shopping, or going to the dentist, festive music is in full gear. And because the Buzz Girls have been discussing what we're thankful for this whole last week (and giving away cool prizes!), I would like to declare that this holiday season, I'm thankful for music.
Do you find yourself immersed in music this time of year? What are some of your most special holiday songs? Tell us and you'll be entered to win a signed copy of "I Believe You," an acoustic folk/jazz/inspirational CD by the lovely and talented Danielle Vaughn. (Note: She also has a magical holiday collection, Noel.) Tina will announce all the winners tomorrow (Monday, November 29). Good luck!!!
