I love Christmas, I truly do. And for some reason, for just one day usually in July or August, I want it to be wintertime. Something within me simply yearns for the snow and hot cocoa. (I think it may have to do with the fact that I am 100% a choir nerd, and we used to get ready for our Christmas concerts in late summer/early fall.) So here I am, listening to my Christmas playlist and sipping hot cocoa.

Speaking of which, did you know that there are some pretty amazing English Christmas songs out there? I had no idea until I married an Englishman. Now I listen to Shakin’ Stevens and Wizzard right along with my Harry Connick Jr. and Vince Guaraldi Trio. (If you think you can handle the hard stuff, try Fairytale of New York)

WinteryThanks for letting me indulge. Back to 80 degree weather and sandals I suppose.
