Everybody has a favorite Christmas song. Maybe you even have more than one. I think my favorite is All I Want for Christmas by Mariah Carey. And the one with Jimmy Fallon and TheRoots playing classroom instruments is my absolute favorite version. Be sure to watch for the pop-up kids–they crack me up!
The song features prominently in my favorite Christmas movie, Love Actually. Here at Chez R, we always make sure we watch it some time during the Christmas season. It’s one of our traditions.
Another tradition is heading to downtown West Palm Beach to see the Sandi Tree, a HUGE Christmas tree built entirely out of sand, down on the waterfront. Every half-hour or so they do a whole program with music and lights. It’s lots of fun.
What are your own traditions? How about the ones in your area?
I hope you’re having a wonderful evening surrounded by those you love. Be sure to give them a hug.
And just because I love you, I’m leaving you with Billy Mack (actor Bill Nighy in Love Actually) with his holiday hit, Christmas Is All Around. If you haven’t seen the movie, seriously! Do.
Happy Saturday night!
