Judging by the responses on yesterday’s post, I’m not the only one who’s broken the no-Christmas music-before-Thanksgiving rule. Show of hands … who’s bookmarked a Christmas station on Pandora already for the season? *hand raised*
Modern Sisters (and Brothers) who are already listening to Christmas music, it’s time we stand up for ourselves in the face of oppression by those Grinches who want to deny us our joyful music for another three weeks. Fall can be hard, what with the days getting shorter and the year getting longer and all. We need a little extra cheer in our lives.
Here’s some inspiration from my go-to holiday album, Barenaked for the Holidays:
In unrelated musical awesomeness, here is a lovely non-holiday song by Kina Grannis called ‘In Your Arms’ with a super-cool video that employs 288,000 Jelly Belly beans and some excellent sound effects.
More on that video here, where you can also find a clip about the making of the video.
