Merry Christmas (eve)

Merry Christmas!
To those of you that celebrate. :) I hope you all have had a fantastic holiday season so far. For me personally, I've felt a little less cheerful this year than in other years...maybe because we're not having Chrismas at my house this year so there's no hectic preparation going on, maybe because we got out tree oh, about a week ago, maybe it's because of the financial crisis going on which is definitely a damper on the festive spirit.
Thankfully though, I'm starting to feel it a little more. We made cookies yesterday and I wrapped all my presents. I've been listening to Christmas music nonstop. The temperature has been below zero for almost this entire week. There's heaps of snow on the ground. How could you not be happy with that? 
So in honor of the holiday, I made my perfect Christmas music playlist. :P Yeah, I'm the kind of girl who knows every version of every Christmas song out there...sorry. 
1. Step Into Christmas - Elton John 
2. Snow - Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney [<3]
3. Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow - Michael Buble
4. Carol of the Bells - Natalie Cole 
5. Merry Almost Christmas - Frog and Toad [don't laugh! if you've heard it you know why it's amazing. :)]
6. All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey [this song came out in 1994 and it's STILL big]
7. Winter Song - Ingrid Michaelson, Sarah Bareilles
8. Little Saint Nick - The Beach Boys
9. Winter Wonderland - Jason Mraz [not available on iTunes! URGH]
10. Auld Lang Syne - Artist Medley from The Hotel Cafe Presents Winter Songs


What are your favorite Christmas songs? 

ALSO, some other awesome bloggers and authors and I had a secret santa gift exchange this year! A BIG thank you to Lenore who had my name. I am really excited to read Dream Factory and I have to say that I might have...ahem, eaten all the candy already. But with my family's help of course. :) 
But, really Lenore, you are amazing and you made my holiday so much brighter.
And now I feel like my own gift that I sent was crap. :P I hope it reached my special person by today!

I just hope you all have a marvelous holiday; eat lots of food, sing carols, watch Elf, and read books!


  1. I am just loving these 2 am posts! Thanks for the link add! I am having a wonderful Christmas Eve at 3am!

  2. Pretty tree and pretty present (Good job Lenore!) Me and my sister are going to spend the day wrapping presents and watching WALL-E and Napoleon Dynamite! We watched Elf last weekend! Merry Christmas!

  3. Gahh i loveeeeeeeee Jason Mraz. Im glad that "I'm Yours" has gotten him a little bit of fame, but i love him. Winter Wonderland is a masterpiece (:
    ha and I love Elf too. God, Christmas is amazing.

  4. Sadly I no longer enjoy Christmas music. I work in a department store so I hear way too much of it! I do however still have a soft spot of the chipmunks christmas music.

  5. Kori: They might just be prescheduled. :P

    Alea: I haven't seen Wall-E yet! I need to.

    Emily: It IS amazing. *sighs*

    Sharon: Oh, that's tragic! :P I totally understand it though.


  6. Everyone thinks I'm kidding when I say Sharon and I are like twins. I just bought a Chipmunks Christmas CD last month and I love it!

    But I love all Christmas music. My favorite songs are probably Sleigh Ride, Silver Bells, and O Holy Night!

    Hope you have a VERY merry Christmas Liv!

  7. I <3 Alvin and the Chipmunks! And I love watching Christmassy movies: Elf, Christmas with the Kranks, Prancer....Happy holidays to you!

  8. YAY - I'm glad it made it to you and that you liked it!! And don't feel bad - I tend to massively overdo everything. I need to work on that right? :)

  9. Merry Christmas! I second watching Elf! :)

  10. Merry Christmas, Liv.
    I love the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I am catching up on some e-mails and then watching Christmas Movies.

  11. My favorite Christmas song is Carol of the Bells. The instramental one, I like both - Steamroller and Trans-Siberan, but the Steamroller one is my favorite. :]]

    I kinda felt like my gift was crap after I got mine too lol. :p


  12. I love this song called "Petite Garcon". It's just beautiful. :)

  13. I know how you feel. i wish my gift had been a bit better, but I hope my person liked what i sent. and i swear i meant to send something else...hopefully i still can if it ever ARRIVES! LOL

    Yay for your gift though. Lenore did an awesome job.



Pour your heart out. :)
