Christmas Vibes

It’s that special time of year, when those you love draw near

There’s just something magical about the atmosphere

That no other season can compare

Maybe it’s the music, maybe it’s the food

Maybe it’s the beautiful decorations that get us in the mood

The presence of family and friends

Laughter and cheer is more than enough to remind us who really care

Christmas time though is not all Ho! Ho! Ho! Ho! for everyone

For some Christmas is just no fun 🙁

As it is a reminder of those who have gone

The memories can hit us like a powerful mist

Often so strong we spend countless days trying to dismiss

 

Christmas brings us together for a few days in December

But we should always remember

We never stop loving our loved ones because they aren’t here

For they will always be special and dear

 

So never despair

Cherish the people you still have here

And let’s commemorate those who can’t be there.

Best wishes for the season.   Have a wonderful evening.

Thank you for stopping by.  🙂

Music Reflection Mondays #18 – Christmas Favourites

Good night and welcome back to Music Reflection Mondays!  How was your day?   Was it like most Mondays, demanding all the energy you’ve got left over from the weekend?  I have no doubt that you persevered and conquered all if not most of your tasks today. 🙂

So what are we getting into tonight? Nothing too heavy, my youngest son Luke is turning 4 years old tomorrow so I’ve been busy finalizing arrangements for his big day.

As October comes to a close tomorrow, we move into November one month closer to Christmas my favourite time of the year. 🙂 The music just melts your heart and gets most of us in the Christmas spirit.

The decorations, decorating, the cleaning, the baking and cooking, time with family, the Christmas shows, the many aromas, the many memories from our past and the new ones we create in the present all solidified in our minds and hearts along with some beautiful music.

Here are some of my favourite people to listen to at Christmas time:

There are so many wonderful songs and people to listen to that it’s near impossible to list them all tonight.  Are any of your favourites listed above? If yes, who?  If not, who did I mistakenly forget?

Have a wonderful night. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
