Bowie Meets Crosby

Christmastime is my absolute most favorite time of the year. It's the only time of year Dave will listen to cheesy music like "All I Want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey. It's wonderful.

The first Christmas we were married, we listened to an Elvis Christmas CD non-stop the whole month of December and we usually sang along. Well, we lived in an apartment and I guess our neighbors could hear us singing through the bathroom vents because when I was getting ready for bed one night one of them yelled, "well, maybe everyday is like Christmas for them!!" Whoops! (This is probably only funny if you know "If Every Day Was Like Christmas" by Elvis Presley.)

This year we've been so busy with work and school we haven't even decorated. Since we're leaving for two weeks on Friday and Dave will be studying/taking finals up to the minute we leave for Tennessee, I've given up hope that it will happen. We're barely going to get cards out before Christmas. This is typical of the whirlwind year we've had and I'm excited to take some time to relax and enjoy the season.

I took off work today to get all my Christmas shopping done and I listened to Christmas music in the car while I was running around. I love Christmas music. When I was little I used to get out of bed at night and go downstairs to lay under the tree and listen to Christmas music. I think I even did that through high school. With all the hustle and bustle surrounding the holidays, I’m glad to at least have the music of the season to put me in a festive mood.

Dave and I wish all our friends and family throughout the world a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year! We’ve been so blessed this year and hope all of you have reason to rejoice and be thankful this holiday season.

And, we want you to enjoy our favorite Christmas song: “Little Drummer Boy” by David Bowie and Bing Crosby. So sweet! I don’t think it gets much better than this.

Thanks for the Christmas eCard. I prefer email cards anyways, because it's easier to respond.

I see a lot of Freeman and Hayek on here. I'd love to talk politics with you guys some time.

Not so fast... you're going to get a card in the mail too. We were late getting our cards out this year.

David is the Freeman and Hayek buff. We'll talk soon.

Merry Christmas!

Oops, I meant Freedman.

Christina said...

WHOOPS... Friedman. I may or may not have bought David a Milton Friedman book for Christmas, so I should know.

David said...

Yes! I knew it.

Christina said...

I said may or may NOT! Don't push your luck.

Next year Dave, get Sufjan Stevens 5 disc Christmas album... you'll love it and Christina's Christmas yearnings will be appeased.

Hope you guys had a great Christmas. Don't feel bad. Our only decoration is a single ornament hanging off a 10 inch Eiffel Tower replica. Loved the video, although I do love Angela and Dwight's rendition. And Dave, thanks for the "Born that Way?" memory. It's no Milton Friedman book but a classic nonetheless.
