Rocking Around the Christmas Tree…and more! 31 Days of Christmas

31dayslogoChristmas songs–you either love ’em or hate ’em!  Who now has Rocking Around the Christmas Tree stuck in their head?  Anyone remember Home Alone? I love Christmas songs and Rocking Around the Christmas Tree, along with a few others, is one of my faves. It’s just so happy and festive–it’s always good for a party.  A more traditional favorite is Joy to the World. I also really enjoy I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

31dayslogoOnly 10 more days til Christmas!! It’s also the season for parties–office, friends, etc.  Does your office throw a holiday party?

Holiday movies (31 Days of Christmas)

31dayslogoWith only 12 more days until Christmas, kids will be getting out of school soon for Christmas break, which means they’ll be home all day.  It’s also time for all the holiday movies–A Christmas Story, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, The Grinch (are you a traditionalist or do you prefer the Jim Carrey version?), It’s a Wonderful Life, Polar Express–just to name a few. One of my favorites is Elf. My son LOVES Buddy and my husband’s favorite part is where Buddy sings in the bathroom.  The whole movie is hilarious and we always make sure to watch it every year.

Worst Christmas gift (31 Days of Christmas)

31dayslogoIt’s almost Friday, and one day closer to Christmas. We’re officially 2 weeks out. Keeping with the gifting theme, my sister gave me my best gift, my worst gift came from my niece. She got me a multi-colored neon purse. It was really kind of awful.  But, it came from my niece, whom I love and adore, so I couldn’t get rid of it. About 2 years later, I finally “returned” it to my sister.  It isn’t about what you get, but just the fact that someone put thought into it. 

What was your worst Christmas gift? Comment below to be entered into today’s #giveaway, a signed copy of the Sassy Mates omnibus. And make sure to enter to #win the grand prize, a Kindle Voyager (or $199 gift card).  Don’t forget to check out Mina Carter’s blog, too–we are alternating posting each day to celebrate 31 Days of Christmas.    SMomnibus
