Blogmas: December 2nd

BROWN PAPER PACKAGES TIED UP WITH STRING


In 2016, Kelly Clarkson covered My Favorite Things on her Christmas album. Every single store played this song on repeat from November 1 through the end of December. The first time I heard it I really enjoyed it. It has a great arrangement but, I wondered, how had this become a Christmas song? Meh, I thought, whatever.

Whatever in deed. The song followed me everywhere that year. I nearly had a breakdown in Michaels when the song was clearly on repeat.

But, it did inspire me to start a new tradition. I started giving everyone a book for Christmas Eve – especially the kids in my life. It would be something for them to do in the long hours waiting for Santa to finally come.

I wrap them in brown paper and tie them with a string. We use the Christmas cards that people send as bookmarks. And they have been a hit every year! I suppose….thank you Kelly Clarkson?


Tell me, please! What Christmas song do you think shouldn’t actually be considered holiday classic?
