Spreading Christmas Cheer December 19, 2020

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Music & Dance.

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”  Will Farrell, ELF

Some ideas:

“Jolly Old Saint Nicholas”

“Frosty the Snowman”


“Silent Night”

“The First Noel”

“We Three Kings”

“Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer”

What’s your favorite Christmas Song?

Sing it ~ loud & proud!

Aah . . . that’s cheery!

I don’t know the one about grandma and the reindeer! I will have to google it 🙂

It’s a TV Special over here. The chorus:

Grandma got runover by a a reindeer
Walking home from our house Christmas Eve
You may say there’s no such thing as Santa
But as for me and Grandpa we believe

I like that grandma one!! And it brings back memories

It’s terrible to think of Santa’s reindeer being so negligent! 😆

Singing always clears out the agitation!

We tuned in to a wonderful Jazz Christmas Concert from USC this week ~ some singing, some instrumental. All jazzy, warm, and wonderful.

Good luck staying calm this week, Kate. You have a lot on your plate for anytime of year!

I am a big fan of Will Farrell. I should watch “Elf” again. Carols used to be a big part of Christmas. Thank you for the reminder, Nancy. 🙂 I am a “Drummer Boy” fan, and many others. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.❤️

Thanks, Erica. Hope you have a song in your heart from now until 2021! Tis the season to be jolly . . .

I’ve always liked “Oh Come All Ye Faithful.” I have lots of favorites, though. I have a nice mix that mixes classical with pop with golden oldies. I only play it at this time of year, so I don’t really get tired of it.

nrhatch - December 20, 2020

I enjoy a wide variety of carols . . . but NOT when they start getting airplay in stores in early October. Not a problem this year since the only shopping we’re doing is for groceries.

I like traditional carols (Carol of the Bells, Good King Wenceslas, O Come O Come Emmanuel, Oh Holy Night, etc.) and also “contemporary” (e.g., The Grinch!). The Grinch is probably approaching the mid-century mark and will become a classic in no time! :mrgreen:

I’m still smiling after a FaceTime visit with my 3-year old grandson today, Nancy. He sang Jingle Bells to me and then did his best at The 12 Days of Christmas. It made my day! 🙂

nrhatch - December 21, 2020

Your image of his singing is making ME smile!

Next year, I need to adopt a kid (or three) for the holidays ~> they put the HO-HO-HO in the Holidays!

6. L. Marie - December 21, 2020

I’m happy to say I knew every one of those! 😄 I love Silent Night! And I writing a post on another favorite carol.
Happy holidays, Nancy!

nrhatch - December 21, 2020

Thanks, Marie. I look forward to your post. I’m trying to decide how to close out the blogging year on a HIGH note.

‘Tis the season to be silly . . .

Hi – I like your selections and I am nkt sure what my favorite Christmas songs are
Depends on the time
Like Xmas eve – silent night with a lit candle and singing in a group
Or radio tunes during December – including the grandma run over song

nrhatch - December 23, 2020

Absolutely. Mood and music have to match!
