I'm sitting here in a melancholy mood... it's the Christmas season, and there's merriment all around me. Children are getting excited for Santa to come by, the stores are crowded, there's a nip in the air. This will be my first Christmas since my mother passed away, and ironically, perhaps diabolically, the family get together is the 15th... the anniversary of her passing.

I skipped Christmas last year. There were no presents, no tree, no lights, no Christmas dinner. I didn't want to let the pain of her passing spoil what was her favorite holiday for years to come. But this year... this year I celebrate again. This year there will be presents, a tree shining with lights and tinsel, bright lights outlining the house, and a feast. But there will also be an empty seat at that table.

So, I was doing what I usually do when in this mood... listening to music, Christmas music. And I thought about ATS... and I wondered what you all were listening to. So, let's do something together! Let's post our favorite Christmas songs from YouTube! I'll start:



Something about that line... "I played my best for Him"... not "I played great for Him" or "I played perfect for Him." His best was enough. That means something to me, for I am rarely even close enough to see perfect in the distance, but I always do my best. Maybe, just maybe, that's enough.

Thanks for reading the words of an old, decrepit, melancholy redneck.

I'm not joking and this is not because of the recent news, but I have always loved

Baby it's cold outside.

Not the Michael Buble version either, It has to be the Bing Crosby, Doris Day version!

Yes I love that one.

There is something about their old timey accent?
I love how Doris sings, it reminds me a lot of my grandma.

This is how they flirted in the 1940's!

In my family we are a little different...
Instead of listening to traditional holiday music for Christmas we have listened to Disco since I was in elementary school and the tradition lives on through my children and theirs!

I love that one too, but I found out that a lot of people find it very annoying! It shocked me!

I remember the first year I lost my Mom. It was two months before Christmas. I couldn't imagine how the family would even have a Christmas without her. We had already lost Dad years before that. I guess we all knew how much my Parents loved Christmas and how beautiful they made it for us all. We knew that they would want us all together and celebrate, not mourn.

That Christmas was surprisingly beautiful in spite of our loss. We still had each other and we knew they were finally together again and at peace.

Merry Christmas!

Glad you can see through the pain and enjoy it for the sake of your remembered. Personally, I despise what this holiday has become. So, to that, we've been trying to bring it in and bring it back to some semblance of what we believe is intended and just enjoy the time with family and friends. However, in the spirit of your thread...the part you actually asked for, here is some mooosac!!
