No matter how much I try to be scrooge and reject the commercialism of Christmas, I just can't get enough Christmas music! I become obsessed every year. There is a local radio station that plays Christmas music all December, and I have even been playing it in my classroom for my students! Even though I have heard all of these songs countless times, they never get old. (With the exception of "Santa Baby" and a few select others!) I find Christmas music to be the only type of music that doesn't get old.
Anyway, Joe played me his Sufjan Stevens Christmas album on the way to a family gathering today. I really enjoyed it. Joe's favourite, which I also happen to enjoy, is this one:
I'm really excited that Christmas is only a week away! I still work all of this week. I'm definitely feeling ready for a break. I love my class, the kids are great, but we all need some time away from school. I'll just have to bring some Christmas energy to my class this week to make it more bearable for all! I plan on having a Hanukkah party, and a Christmas party. Should be fun!
