Well, it’s officially here! Yes. Although, we’ve been experiencing “winter” weather for some weeks now, today (12/21/2016) marks the Winter Solstice.
I’ve actually been enjoying the warm up today. Coming off the subzero wind chills, the recent 30+ degree temperatures feel like a heatwave!! So, are you ready for the Christmas holiday? I am. I’m really thankful for the gift that Christmas Day represents and can’t wait to share Love, Joy, Peace, Goodwill, good food, time, music, and my presence with others!!

Tip 1- It’s cold so it’s okay to wear layers if you aren’t quite ready to wear the big winter coat. Once inside, you can always take away some layers as things warm up!
Tip 2- Christmas and New Year’s Eve are wonderful occasions to go for some sparkle! Wear satin, velvet, or something with sequins, beads, or rhinestones. Ladies, you can also wear glitter or glittery makeup.

Last week, we didn’t have time to play Joel Schick’s second song so we took a music break and played his light-hearted take on an alternative drink for Santa–“Leave A Bottle for Santa”. We also received another favorite Christmas song request that was honored. For Eileen, we played Stevie Wonder’s rendition of “Some Day at Christmas”. Boy, did it sound good!!!
