We have a local radio station here that starts playing nothing but carols from Thanksgiving until after Christmas. I love it! I look forward to it every year. Any radio I get my hands on in the house and in the cars, gets turned to 97.1 - Christmas music, all the time! I sing it, hum it, do little dances to it, it's just so joyful! We had what I consider a little "Christmas Miracle" one year. While playing carols in the car, Jamison, who was only 5 months old at the time, started singing to "Oh Holy Night". This is my favorite Christmas song and he was sitting in his carseat going "Oh ho, oh holy ni" and making other humming sounds. At 5 months? I was having a hard time that year as it was the first Christmas without my mom, and his sweet little singing made me cry! It was just so unexpected, so dear and so unusual at his age. Melted my heart. Myabe it was my mom wishing us a Merry Christmas. I'd like to think so.

I hope you and your families enjoy some festive music to brighten the days ahead and that you all enjoy a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving! Thank you so much for being here! Anybody want a drumstick?
