Fun Monday - Heaux, heaux, heaux


This week's Fun Monday topic is from Mamalang. She requested It's the Christmas season, and I want you to tell us what are your three favorite Christmas Carols and a picture of your favorite Christmas "thing". It could be a Christmas tree, or your mantle, or a church, you in a Santa hat.


My three favorite Christmas carols? Easy - peasy.

My very favorite Christmas carol is "Happy Birthday". We have always had birthday cake for Baby Jesus as our Christmas dinner dessert since my girls were small. We always sing this song and my oldest daughter always named this as her favorite Christmas carol.






My second choice is a song not from my childhood. I am not sure why this particular song was not sung at Mass when I was a child or in my parents' house, but there you have it. I discovered this song as an adult and it speaks to my soul.








My third choice IS from my childhood. I mentioned it out loud and my husband sort of groaned but my grandson immediately went "We have that song in my class at school!" I do love traditions, no matter how cheesy.












Now for the picture of my favorite Christmas "thing". I LOVE Nativity scenes. This is a picture of the one in my childhood hometown, from that era.

In the 1970s, I was driving past this very Nativity during a rainstorm. My daughter started crying because the baby was getting wet and cold. We stopped and put our new baby's receiving blanket on the baby. It was returned, washed and dried, to my mother by the very nice firemen who watched us. I love small towns. Always have (except when I was high school and couldn't get away with ANYTHING) and always will.



Merry Christmas, y'all.

What a great choice for favorite things for Christmas. Afterall, that is the 'reason for the season'. Great song.

My Two Front Teeth (groan!!!!)

Celtic Woman does a lovely job with "O Holy Night", don't they?

I used to enjoy driving by all the nativity scenes around town - but they're hard to find these days. Vandals have made sure that the nativities are set up inside most churches now. Very sad.

I'm an Oh Holy Night kind of a gal. We used to sing it in mass when the Bishop would come.

My brother and sister sang "two front teeth" and used tar to blacken their teeth. At a school program. I must have been 5 years old and they were 7 and 9. I never forgot that!!!

Chills for that rendition of O Holy Night!

Your Christmas story about the nativity made me smile.

Love the celtic women's Oh Holy Night, it is one of my favorite carols. I lol when I heard the two front teeth song, takes me back to my childhood. Our Church does a live Nativity every year, it really puts you in the spirit of Christmas.
