It's Christmas Eve...!


As I have said, I'm not much into Christmas as it's celebrated now days!

My idea of Christmas is so far removed from all the craziness going on in the shopping world and the traffic that it's not even funny!

However, I thought I might share a little bit of traditional Christmas music with you, just in case you are into that sort of thing! I do have to admit that played on these wine glasses, the sound is very pretty and soothing!



And just in case you didn't like the wine glasses, here is another piece. This one is closer in imagery to the memories of my childhood!



No matter how you celebrate tomorrow or today...or even if you don't, I wish you all peace and joy! Be safe, stay happy!

Coffee in the kitchen this morning! Have a blessed day!

Oh what a beautiful song. Brings back memories of Christmases past, and makes me very melancholy.

Happy holidays, Hermit. Missed the music. I hope Santa will bring me some new ears AND fix the sound on this computer! Put a bug in his ear for me, will you. Tell him I've been a good girl.

There's a commercial on now, that i always look up to, and it's the candy kisses playing that song. Love it.

Ken said...

Merry Christmas Jim,miss ya brother...i'll get back to my regular visits eventually...

The second clip reminds me of the Upper Peninsula and many snowy, cold winters. Like you, we don't get into all the craziness at Christmas. I'm so relaxed I got out of bed at 1:30 p.m. today. Still haven't got dressed & enjoying my third cup of coffee. What a blessing to realize we can celebrate by having peace & quiet, a simple ham dinner and a kiss saying, "I love you."

Look forward to more coffee breaks with you in 2012.

HermitJim said...

Hey Felinae...
My dear friend! Good to see you this holiday!

I'm glad you enjoyed the music and glad you could come by! Happy holidays to you all!


Hey Sissy...
Sorry you couldn't catch the music!

I'll be sure to tell Santa if I see him!

Happy holidays...and thanks for coming by today!


Hey Trouble...
I like those candy kisses and even their commercials!

That's about the only kind of kisses I get anymore!

You have a good holiday, and thanks for the visit!


Hey Ken...
Good to see you, buddy! Been missing your post!

I hope you and yours have a great and happy holiday season!

Take care and thanks for dropping in, brother!


Hey Treesong...
Enjoying the peace and quiet is the best part of most holidays for me!

Sounds like you have the right idea!

Happy holidays to your house, my friend!
