It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Okay, so for those of you who know me, you know I like to sing and dance around my house pretty much all day long (or even if you know me you might not know that about me). I'm sure my kids will always be annoyed by me when they are old enough to get annoyed.
Anyway, so I was dancing around my kitchen this morning singing, It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and I started thinking about the lyrics: "There'll be parties for hosting,marshmallows for toasting..." I don't know about you, but I have never roasted marshmallows at Christmas time. Have you? Another lyric I thought was interesting was "there'll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago." I have never told scary ghost stories during the holidays. Weird huh? Maybe they just needed to find words to rhyme so they put those ones in.

i've roasted marshmallows!! i did it once when i was a kid over my dad's fireplace. it was fun. also, i have no idea why they put the ghost stories line in there, but the only thing i can think of that goes along with christmas is the story of scroodge where he's visited by three ghosts. maybe that's what there're talking about. i guess i never payed much attention to those lyrics before

Oh my gosh! that's so funny....I've been listening to that song my whole life and never even caught that line "Scary ghost stories". That's funny.

By the way....
I'm going to tell you this again....
I really like your little family sketch at the top of the page.
The one of Kirye made me laugh today because he has a look on his face like he's up to something. Like he's smirking at something he did, that nobody found out about yet.
funny.

We used to go on a holiday hay ride and sing carols all the way, then once we got back to the house we started from, we had a bonfire in the back and had hot cocoa and roasted marshmallows.

Of course, snow for Christmas was an extreme rarity growing up (and still is).
