It's almost Christmas -- can you believe it??? To me, this really is the most magical time of year - and I can't wait to go home for a week of spending time with my family!!!
I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!
I'm always glad to see Thanksgiving roll around because that means I no longer have to listen to Christmas music in secret! I can't get enough of the classics and the carols...and call me crazy, but no Christmas seems complete without a little "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" from *N Sync (YES *N SYNC!)...hahaha.
Confession: I'm still a not-so-closet fan of *N Sync, all these years later :)
|Aaahh...in all of their boy band glory :)|
Because I'm feeling holly and jolly, I've put together a little playlist of *some* of my favorites...many of them I'm sure most of us have grown up knowing. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

If you feel like crying, listen to Groban's "I'll Be Home for Christmas," featuring messages from our military soldiers to their families. Cue the waterworks.
If you're looking for background music, allow me to recommend the lovely Beegie Adair, the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack, and The Piano Guys. I LOOOOVE piano music year-round...but it's especially beautiful at Christmas time.
And now I shall leave you with a clip from one of the best Christmas movies ever. I love this movie SO MUCH and hope you enjoy it. Hope you all have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
(P.S. Skip ahead to the 2:15 mark for a real treat ;) )
