On The First Day Of December…

I’m so glad it’s finally December. People are cheerful for no apparent reason, random acts of kindness are seen all over the place, and most importantly, we get to reflect on the past year. As a testament to the holiday spirit, I allowed several cars to get ahead of me while waiting in traffic. Yes, that was the extent of my generosity today, but hey… it’s only the first day of December. Imagine what I’ll do tomorrow! This whole “nice” thing is going to take a while to sink in. 😉

So I had a random question for my readership – what’s your favorite Christmas carol? Okay fine, you’re allowed to pick two, since I can only narrow it down to two – Carol of the Bells and Silent Night. I was driving around Katy this evening while running errands and happened to come across Carol of the Bells on Sunny 99.1 FM. It was rather difficult to maintain my composure. As excited as I was, the people staring at me in the neighboring cars at the Fry Road and I-10 stop light didn’t seem so interested in the fact that I had the convertible top down in 50 degree weather. Instead, I unintentionally drew their attention when I blasted holiday music on the radio. Who cares if they questioned my sanity? The festivities of this season only last for a few weeks, so it’s time to enjoy them. 🙂

Hmmm, so I plan on writing another post dealing with the pointless distinction between “Merry Christmas!” and “Happy Holidays!”, but I’m rather cold and tired right now. Till then, let me know what your favorite carols are!
