Holly Jolly Christmas

Well, well, well, it's finally here. All those decorations, tree trimming, cooking, baking, shopping, searching for the right gift, not finding it, stressing, seeing family, and everything else only for one day, and then it's over in a flash.

We just seemed worn out this year, we're not even having a Christmas dinner. I don't know what we're going to eat. LOL, I bought some Turkey Wings but not I don't know if I want them. Whatever. This year we didn't make a big deal about not having the dinner or whatever, it wasn't that serious, so I'm not going to worry either. If I don't have it, I don't have it. And whatever present I don't have for someone...They'll get it next year.

I watched "The Sound of Music" last night (LOVED IT!) and then I went to Diva's blog today and saw her lovely, funny and well written song to the tune of "These Are a Few of Favorite Things" as sung by Julie Andrews in the movie, and it reminded me that I wrote this a couple years ago. I also wrote a "'Twas the night Before Christmas' featuring Buffy of course, but I can't find it. Arggh! But I wanted to share this one and dedicate it to Diva since she posted hers first, and I'm pretty much riding her coat tails and posting my own.

My Favorite Things
By Gunngirl

Fresh fallen snow and warm scented candles
Bright Christmas lights and stockings on mantels
The hustle and bustle the holiday brings
These a few of my favorite things

Hot apple pie and fuzzy warm socks
itunes and CD's and cute cuckoo clocks
Kittens that play with bright colored strings
These are few of my favorite things

Buffy and Angel on crisp DVD
Hot tea and cookies and trimming the tree
Watching snow birds as they perch and sing
These are a few of my favorite things

When the day's long
When the trains late
When I'm feeling bad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

So, on that note, I want to wish all my blog buds a Wonderful Christmas! Whatever you do, even it's just sitting around in your pajamas and watching TV, enjoy it. Try not to worry about having a Christmas that everyone thinks you're supposed to have with family (sometimes family you don't even want to see) and all that hoopla. Just enjoy doing what you do. If I haven't stopped by, I'm getting there! :)
