The Holiday Spirit

I've found it! I've finally found the holiday spirit! That feeling of your heart quickening a little bit and a warm glow spreading throughout your body--without even having anything alcoholic to drink! The feeling of goodwill toward man and the giddy sensation of joy and delight in seeing the Christmas decorations all around you--even those darn inflatables! (Well, except maybe Sponge Bob--I still don't get giddy about Sponge Bob!)

And how did this wondrous thing happen to me? Well, let me share it with you--let me spread joy and happiness throughout the world.

Having finally collected from my kids their Christmas lists and having finally decided what to get my hubby (since I no longer frequent adult bookstores, I had to come up with a different list), I got in my car during my lunch hour to head to Walmart. Yep, a trip to Walmart helped put me in the holiday mood! But besides that, and maybe more importantly, when I started up the car and the radio came on, what came out of my speakers really reminded me of Christmases past and made me feel all holly jolly deep within my soul!

Here's the magic that came from my speakers: Just click here--Cheech & Chong's Santa Claus and His Old Lady! Man, I haven't heard that one for a long time, man!

How could I forget what Santa's sleigh looks like? Just listen to this description: "Santa Claus used ta have this really charp chort, man, y'know? It was lowered to da ground, had twice-pipes, candy-apple red and button top. Oooo, clean!"

And do you remember Santa's reindeer? How Santa would climb abord his "charp chort," and yell out, "On, Donner! On, Blitzen! On, Chewy! On, Tavo! C'mon, Becto!"

I don't know. Maybe I caught a bit of that "magic dust" Cheech talks about, but whatever it is, I'm finally getting excited about the holidays! Wooo-hooo, bring it on, Santa!

Oh, and just in case you want to "sing" along with Cheech and Chong, you can find the "lyrics" HERE. Ho, ho, ho!

that is definitely a California Christmas carol. the man next to me on my flight yesterday asked "how can people live in that state". Obviously quite happily, I said. Thanks for the memory.

Oh, I have so much to catch up on. I'm so glad I stopped by to see what you've been working on. Love the red and white quilt (so far) and the journal that you made for Eileen.

I'm so glad that you've finally been bitten by the holiday bug! Even if it did come via Cheech and Chong! LOL!

ROFLOL - I love that Cheech & Chong's Christmas song! It's been a while since I heard. That's what I need, I'll have to see if iTune has it! Hey Sharon, That's not the type of song that they play on the radio station that you listen too! lol Thanks I'm off to see if I can get that holiday spirit in me! lol
