Blogmas: December 2nd


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?
