I know it's only the 1st of the month, but I won't have much time to make this thread during the festive season, so what better way to start the
month with a few of your favourite songs which get you into the Christmas spirit!
I'll admit, I'm a bit of a 'Bah Humbug' type of guy during this time of year, it's never been my favourite time up until 5 years ago when my
first son was born, and recently with my second son I now have an inexplicable excuse to re-live my childhood through my children, and show them that
Christmas is a time to love one another, and to appreciate these special times together even more.
(It's also an excuse to buy all them toys that I dreamt of as a child )
So ATS, here are the songs that kick start the festive period for me:
I could also add the above movie to my all time favourite, but that's for another time
Just got that movie on BluRay... erm for the kids of course, they need to meet Jack Skellington
3.) Last but not least -
A great song to play to my children at bedtime on Christmas Eve
Probably not what you expected when you first clicked on the thread huh? Well I am an 80's baby, movies were my life!
Weird as it might sound I love to get out an old tape of Tubula Bells at Christmas time. I'm not so hot on the traditional christmas stuff and
loathe the modern stuff, especially if its done by people like Cliff (kitty) Richards.
ANY version of Carol of the Bells, save for the "pop-ified" ones. It's my favorite Christmas song ever, and I can get rather obsessed with it &
play just that all day long in various versions if I can get away with it. Here's a few of my favorites:
Whatever that song is off National Lampoons; Christmas Vacation. It might be because of the bikini model or it might just be because it's one of my
favourite Xmas movies. The line, " The sh!tter was full!" still makes me laugh.
'Melli Kaliki Moka is Hawaiian for saying merry Christmas to you'
I'd post the vid if I had a clue how to spell the damn thing.
