One of the best ways to get into the Christmas mood is with it’s music. Everyone has their favorites. Below is a list of SOME of mine. My Christmas track list is probably somewhere close to 100 but here are some of the ones that really get things kicked off right.
When I was a kid, one of my favorite memories of Christmas time was the “25 Days of Christmas” TV Classics. I grew up watching various different types of movies, tv shows, cartoons, etc that always put my whole family in the Christmas mood.
Even though times have now changed, I’m trying to recreate a little of that this year with my kids. Below is the list of what I’m going to try and share our girls before Christmas. They don’t include many of my favorites but it’s a start. We got the jump on this list over the Thanksgiving holidays but there are still quite a few to go.
Keep in mind that both my kids are still little girls so you’ll have to excuse movies like “Barbie and Nutcracker” and “Dora Christmas”. The hope is that each year we’ll replace many of these with other Christmas Classics like “The Little Drummer Boy”, “Elf” and “A Year Without A Santa Claus.
Below is our first Christmas movie list. What’s on your Christmas “must watch” list? Let me know in the comments section so we can begin next year’s list.
I’ve had so many people asking where the video “Come Thou Long Expected Jesus” from Sunday came from.
The name of the song was released by a YouTube Channel called “Skit Guys”. It’s a great resource that we at RLC have used various times.
Here it is… Merry Christmas… Enjoy…
Every year it seems like Daylight savings time sneaks up on me.
Then, the night of daylight savings I’m checking my phone and backup plan always worried I’ll over sleep. That doesn’t really make sense because you actually gain an hour this time of year but I digress.
Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour this Saturday night and enjoy the extra hour of sleep.
Consider yourself informed.
