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.

Party time–what parties are on your schedule this holiday season? (31 Days of Christmas)

31dayslogoOnly 10 more days til Christmas!! It’s also the season for parties–office, friends, etc.  Does your office throw a holiday party? What about your friends, do you all get together to celebrate? Don’t forget about the White Elephant (do you allow “steals”?) and Secret Santa’s.  I love doing Secret Santa with my street team.

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.
