Happy Christmas Eve to you all, well, that is if you celebrate it, I do, but only for the commercialism. :)
So, are you tired of Christmas songs, yet? How many versions of the same song, can you think of? (and really, what was wrong with the first couple of recordings, that made someone feel they needed to remake it?) My favorite Christmas song: (I know you're waiting on pins and needles, because my favorite song is all that's on your mind today. I can see you standing there waiting in Antici... (borrowing from my fave Rocky Horror Picture Show moment ) ...pation.) It is Winter Wonderland and it has been recorded too many times to count by such artists as: Bob Dylan, George Strait, Tony Bennett, Karen Carpenter, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Eurythmics, Elvis Presley, Goldfrapp, Cyndi Lauper, Darlene Love, Johnny Mathis, Ozzy Osbourne, Dolly Parton, Frank Sinatra, Stryper, Jason Mraz, (thanks to Wikipedia for the info, love ya, wiki!) Can you imagine Ozzy singing it?! something like this ♪wakwainawindaWhadafock?! SHARON!!!! ♪
So my favorite version? My own, of course! You should hear it! Absolutely fabulous! Like Grammy award winning stuff! (is that a category? best new rendition of an old holiday song?) and if you want to pile up into my bathroom, you'll be sure to hear a late night shower performance of it later tonight.

♪There won't be snow in Florida this Christmas time♪
Not really how it goes, but it's true, I'm not going to have any snow, well unless you count the foam at Disney's very merry Christmas? and I do not! So, be sure to cry a tear for my non-Walking in a Winter Wonderland self. Oh! and isn't the greatest gift, anywhere?! life?! I'm certainly not gonna say "Thanks for the Kindle, but, I really don't want this life anymore, take it back." I'm just saying! It's not that I don't feel for starving children in Africa, but who cares if they know it's Christmas time?! They probably wouldn't like the commercialism, anyway!
This Christmas be sure to:
Bake plenty of cookies, but be careful where you leave them, (if you don't know why, read this.)
Watch any one of the many versions of A Christmas Carol (heck watch all 13, if you want, I don't care.)
Be careful with BB guns, (you'll shoot your eye out.)
Don't overcook the turkey, and mix cat food with the jello (unless you're trying to reenact Christmas Vacation, in which case, be sure to kidnap your boss, and demand a large bonus)
By all means, please wear a padded bra with that Christmas Sweater, (a thermometer works fine, no need for visuals of how cold it is while I'm trying to eat my Christmas pudding)
And, if you want to stick your tongue to a flagpole? Go right ahead! What do I care?!
I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas! I've told Santa to just skip me and give you all my gifts (so you should be nice and cozy by my coal lit fire.)
♪Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, and the very next day you gave it away. This year, to save me from tears, I'll give it to someone special.♪
(originally by Wham, but in true to Christmas form it has been... yes! that's right... rerecorded! by Taylor Swift and Ashley Tisdale but the version I'm singing is Wham!)
