A Northern Sky, a Cool Yule and a Miracle

Does any else feel like Christmas threw up on them?  That’s the ugly metaphor I’m choosing to describe the Christmas chaos I’m feeling.  You should see the state of my house.  I think the tree is finally decorated, but I still have a gazillion cards to post and a pile of last minute gifts still yet to buy and of course, tons of wrapping to do.

However, all of that will be put on hold, because today I am chaperoning a field trip to Legoland with Allana’s class.  I plan to write some cards on the bus on the way, but with how car sick I get, I could literally puke Christmas.  I may need to rethink that plan.

Anyhow, this Music Monday post will be a little light today because I’ve got so much to do, like blog about our anniversary date in the midst of the Christmas madness.  Yesterday, Allan and I had a fabulously fun Serendipity-style date, but I’ll explain all that in great lengths in another blog post.

While you wait for all the details, I’ll tease you with a movie clip from Serendipity set to Nick Drake’s Northern Sky.


If you didn’t know already, I have this thing for movie soundtracks and I absolutely LOVE the Serendipity soundtrack, so I have to include the song even though it’s not a Christmas song.  It’s a very fitting song for our anniversary because my Allan comes from a northern town in England and of course, like I said, a perfect way to tie in a tease about our Serendipity-style date.

But Christmas music has been the Music Monday (and Xmas Dolly’s Monday’s Music Moves Me) theme for the past month, so I’ll share a Christmas song from Serendipity.


And since tomorrow night is the first night of Hanukkah, I’ll leave you with some Matisyahu.  Besides, it will take nothing short of miracle to help me with all this Christmas chaos.

    All the Christmas to-dos can be rather chaotic, but not stress it. Enjoy doing things a little each day. That’s what I found works the best with me. Okay, maybe you’re getting right down to the wire with Christmas six days away, but still find your inner peace and enjoy this wonderfully, beautiful holy holiday!
    It was great to stop by to see what Christmas jingles you posted for today’s Monday’s Music Moves Me. I hope you and yours have a blessed and happy Christmas! =D

    I love stopping by here and getting introduced to cool new tunes! Love all your choices – I’ll be downloading these to my music player for our trip! 😉 Hope you get everything done you need to, and have a chance to relax and enjoy the season. I can empathize with the chaos – my house is totally trashed right now trying to get everything done before Friday. 🙂 ((HUGZ!!)) Have a Merry Christmas, Denise! 🙂

    Happy Hanukkah and Where Are You Christmas Oh Holy Night? My Grown Up Christmas Wish is to Jingle Bell Rock!

    I really want to hear all about that date 🙂 I can only live vicariously through others with great relationships.

    I hope your chaperone trip went well!

    Love the music you share.

    Happy Holidays!

    Oh, and the madness of the Holiday can be overwhelming at times, hang in there, January is right around the corner.

    There’s my friend. I wish I would’ve contacted you, but I had so much going on between my accident, ER, the wake & funeral my brain just isn’t functioning properly. So check out my blog today for a public apology for nto stopping by sooner. Sorry & have a good night and MERRY CHRISTMAS! Yes. I got your ornament and totally love it. I sent mine out today hope she gets it on time. We have so many old churches here so I sent her a glass church. I was looking for a windmill because they call Batavia the city of windmills, but they were all gone already. So again I apologize and I haven’t heard some of these, but cool.
