Happy Sunday...

Sorry I missed yesterday. I typed up half of the post, took a break and forgot I had not submitted it yet and kicked back in the recliner and fell asleep. Then Sat morning we had to leave early and have been running all day. I'm sorry this fibro brain went off duty too early last night. I'll try to make it to the end of this post.

I was thinking of beautiful holiday music but instead of asking about what songs you now, what are the first holiday songs you remember singing? I'm going go let you all start the answers. I have my left pointy finger bandaged up from a stupid accident with a knife so typing isn't good.

Gene Autry's LP, "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" was one of my favorite records as a child. I just purchased a CD, so we are listening to it now. Ahh, memories!

We had an old LP (well, it was new at the time, lol) of Lynn Anderson singing Christmas songs. Does anyone remember her? One of the first Christmas songs I remember hearing/singing is "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree" by her.

My Papaw was a real country bumpkin and when I was very little he used to sing me a song called "The Heck with Old Santa Claus"! Not very appropriate for a little girl, but I'll type the words so you guys can see how cute it was.

Last year I hung my stocking by the chimney,
But old Santa didn't bring me anything.
So I wrote a note and I told him what to bring me,
but I didn't even hear his sleighbells ring.

So the heck, with old Santa Claus,
When he goes dashing through the snow I hope he falls.
I'd like to hit him in his HO HO HO
With a bunch of big snowballs.
So the heck with old Santa Claus.

This year I'll build a big fire in the fireplace.
I'll be like those little pigs I read about.
When that big bad wolf in red comes down my chimney,
He a-gonna scorch his whiskers there's no doubt!

So the heck, with old Santa Claus,
When he goes dashing through the snow I hope he falls.
I'd like to hit him in his HO HO HO
With a bunch of big snowballs.
So the heck with old Santa Claus!

That's the first Christmas song I remember knowing all the words to. I thought that song was funny when I was little, so I guess it can't be that bad!

I remember learning 'Silent Night' as a very little girl. We had to sing that in school. We put on a Christmas show each yr and the last  song we did was 'Silent Night'. Our asst Pastor played the piano as we sang this for our Pastor.

I always loved that song, but it took on a whole new meaning the night my first child was born. After my DH had left the hosp for 'Daddy Visit', I laid in the bed missing my brand new son, wanting to hold him again. Down the hall, another new mother had her tv on to an old John Wayne movie, 'Donovan's Reef'. (My father and I watched a lot of JW movies, lol) Suddenly the actors were singing 'Silent Night' and I started crying, so did my room mate. All we wanted was to hold our babies. I could so identify w/ Mary just taking in the wonder of this little miracle of a new born child. ALLLL these yrs later and 3 children total, I still choke up when I hear that song. It just means the beauty and peace of the season to me.

God bless.  Alice.
