In A Xmas-y Mode

I'm no Christian, but you don't have to be one to appreciate Xmas...and Xmas songs. I was not great at piano but I did learn some Xmas songs- my fave piano piece being "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus". (Listen to lil MJ's version-superb). I was at Bangsar last night and there were some carolling going on at the pub where we were- sent me and my buddies to a Xmasy mood. For me, Xmas is family time-and I await happily for my family to reunite and celebrate Xmas. And here's signing off with my personal favourite Xmas song rendition of Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire -a duet - Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole- simply superb combo, download it!

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way;
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
A very Merry Christmas to you

My favorite - "Have Yourself a Merry Little X'mas". :-)

Heh, a bit early, but Merry Christmas!

I have a Catholic friend who told me that Christmas was always something special for him and different from the rest of the holidays.

Instead of rushing around somewhere touring/shopping/partying, he'd spend it at home, listening to music and just relaxing and enjoying the mood...

yar..i met an anti-Christmas Christian who felt that Xmas is too commercialized now...Xmas has become what MTV is to RocknRoll...The only thing is to celebrate it in your own ways

yes. Celebrating Xmas at home, coming home after Mass, having a good roast turkey meal, chatting with your family and playing with the small kids around the christmas tree.... this is something I longed for quite sometime.

it's a pity that nowadays families only have gatherings during festivities ...
