And I have officially landed in crunch time. I do not know why it is I can never get anything done the moment before it is "due", but no matter how hard I try to get the task done ahead of time I always end up in the crunch.
And right now, because I am waiting for certain software to finish freaking out and for another wave of braincells, I have decided that I should do a blog post.
So here...look, a blog post!
My friend Diana (evie) did a christmassy post recently with a list of her favouritest christmas songs, I thought I might follow her lead and share with you a few of my favourites.
1) The Light of Christmas Morn.
Currently this is my favourite Christmas song. Partially because I love the melody, but mostly because of the words.
"The winds of chill December sound the farewell of the year, and evening shadows gather 'round and cloud the soul with fear, but rest you well good Christian men! Nor be of heart forlorn! For December's darkness brings again the light of Christmas morn."
Uh, can I just get a YES? Who does not feel the dragging cold and clingy shadows of winter this month?I know I become so tired and melancholy this time of year. This song makes me smile because I reminds me that everyone feels the cold of the winter (EXCEPT YOU WEIRD AUSTRALIANS AND THE LIKE) and we can all just push through the sadness to get to the blessed holiday of Christmas.
2) Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
(yet another Celtic Woman version, but hey, I love their stuffs)
This song is just a YASSS for me. I used to hate it, but something has clicked lately and it is one of my favourite Christmas songs.
3) Bring a Torch Jeanette Isabella
This song is just another YAAASSS for me. It's a french dance tune, how could anyone not like this?
(and this piano version is particularly lovely)
4) The Man with the Bag
I hadn't ever heard this song until this year. Am I the only one? I had never heard it...and then suddenly BAM it was everywhere.
5) Christmas Waltz
3/4 time is my bae.
So this song is definitely a yes.
6) Merry Christmas Darling
Back to Celtic Woman. #noregrets
8) Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
3/4 time again. I love this song so much. =)
9) Baby It's Cold Outside
No, this is not the original.
and lastly but not leastly!
10) All with You
Not a traditional song, no, but one of my favourites. I've been infatuated with this song for nearly a year and a half. Yaay!
There you go! Listen to them aaaaaaall!
Hehe. I'll see you all around. (And yes that follow-up story post is still on its way. I've just not finished it yet. :) )
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
