So I would listen to Christmas music from the second I push away my third plate of turkey on Thanksgiving to January 2. By then I am usually done. There are some carols that burn my nanny and others that put me in the mood for cocoa and twinkling lights.
Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Every time I hear this song I want to tell the male singer that no means no. There’s something really creepy and desperate about this guy. Especially when the guy is Rod Stewart because I love Dolly and I know she really wants her fancy warm tour bus to get her the heck out. I would be checking the medicine cabinet for Rufinol. Please remind your daughters that it is NEVER too “cold outside” to go home
So Thanksgiving comes early this year and here we go right into the holidays, but before I lose my head in all of it I wanted to take a minute to acknowledge what I liked best about this year. I am grateful…

Hope to see you there
