Today, here in DC, not so much. The temperature was in the upper 60s and it started to rain shortly after dark — the arrival of which, before 5:00 p.m., was the only seasonally-appropriate aspect of the day.
Other than the tunes and the beverage, I am utterly unready for Christmas and somewhat daunted by how soon it’s going to be here (why so late, Thanksgiving?) but — in addition to the usual getting ready for the holidays that happens — I’ve decided to make a bloggy advent calendar of sorts. I’m striving for a post a day with a Christmas memory, favorite song, cookie recipe… whatever I can come up with to share the holiday cheer.
(Yes, I realize I’ve posted about five times total this year, but I do really think I can do this. Gotta get back on the wagon.)
I thought I’d start with a video of one of my Christmas favorites, “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” performed by Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band. (Of course.) It’s not the best-quality video, but it is from a show I was at, so it seemed like the right one to share.
Ho! Ho! Ho!
