Holiday Cheer Round Up!
Posted by purplemary54 on December 23, 2014
By my count, I’m currently three songs behind on my Twelve Days of Christmas project. I’m having a little trouble thinking of individual posts, so I decided just to post some of my favorites. Please remember that most traditional holiday music makes me want to scream, just a little, so these aren’t exactly traditional. Or similar in any way shape or form.
First up, some old school rap.
I’ve always liked this; it adds a little much-needed spice to the holiday sweetness.
Next, a little humor. Cheap and tacky humor, but humor nonetheless.
If this doesn’t make you laugh, well . . . well, actually you’re probably a very nice well-adjusted person. Me, I’m a little twisted and neurotic so I kind of dig it.
Finally, something a little more quiet.
The Monkees’ “Riu Chiu” is a Spanish song about the Nativity that I think is just beautiful. I like this clip because it includes the original Christmas greeting from the boys and the crew from the show. Just a reminder that even if you have to work or are far from home this holiday season, you can still find joy wherever you are and whoever you’re with.
