I Just Can't Help Myself

Turn on TV...... 

Tune in digital music channel 850.....

If you have Insight Cable you can tune in as you read this blog post if you like.  Beware it may be a little early for you, but for me once Halloween is finished its time from favorite music ever created, Christmas music.  Thats right I am an idiot, and I know I should wait until after Thanksgiving, but for me the holiday season is a special time of the year and I can't wait to get it started.  It reminds me of all the good memories I have of my family.

One of those great memories was how we would sing Christmas songs together which were being played on a record player.  My Mom still has those albums and every year we get them out and play them and I have to admit they get this burly guy choked up every time.  None of us individually could carry a note, but together we sounded like professionals.  I know the idea of the holiday season being magical is one of the most overplayed themes there is, but I think in some way it is true.   Everyone I know has some kind of tradition when it comes to Thanksgiving and Christmas, whether it be a new tradition or one that has been in the family for over forty years.

Do you have a tradition?  Is there one that you just can't wait to celebrate?  I would love to hear them.  Throughout the next two months I will be sharing some of mine.

Okay you can go back to listening to Justin Bieber.
