We are total Christmas music junkies over here at The Dose of Reality. Like, the second the all Christmas music, all the time radio station blasts the first notes of I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas, we know it is going to be a good day.
Our hubbies and children do not feel the same level of love and commitment to carols that we do. Let’s just say that Lisa’s hubby refuses to listen to the same song twice, which makes the holidays a bit tricky for him. And Ashley’s hubby has declared a ban on all carols recorded by wives of famous musicians. Yes, Yoko Ono, he is looking at you.
So, needless to say, when we read this post by our friend Kathy Radigan at My Dishwasher’s Possessed, we called each other immediately to laugh over our favorite parts (spoiler alert: it was all of them).
Before we share with you the fantasticness that is Kathy’s ode to her love of Christmas music, we want to tell you a little about how amazing she is. You know those people in the world who just exude kindness and generosity? If you look up those words in the dictionary, you will see Kathy’s picture. She goes out of her way to spread the blogging love, and her love of this community shows in everything she does. We feel so lucky to call her a friend.
If your family is giving you fits about wanting to crank up All I Want For Christmas then you will not want to miss this post! Conversely, if Rockin Around the Christmas Tree is not exactly your idea of a good time, you will laugh relating to how Kathy’s family feels. Either way, this is a win-win for you!
Just to give you a quick taste of what you are going to read, here is a snippet.
November 1 starts the annual “War of the Christmas Music.”
Each year, it’s me against my husband and the three little darlings that I brought into this world, I should add after a collective 36 hours of labor and three C-sections.
This year, I’m taking a proactive stand. I’m taking my case to the people (or at least the few wonderful souls who take time out of their day to read my blog).
Mommy wants to listen to “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas” without the groans and moans from the back seat of the minivan. I would like to enjoy all 55 versions from 55 different artists of, “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” without hearing Joe call me a “Lame-o.”
I’m listing 10 reasons why my family shouldn’t give me a hard time listening to the holiday music that gives little old me such joy:
Let us just warn you that each reason is laugh out loud funny! Comments will be closed here today so that you can all head over to Kathy’s place and bust out a little 12 Days of Christmas while you leave her some Dose Peep love!
Can’t you just tell she is the nicest person ever?!
