Alright, Dr. A started it, and Dr. K tagged me tonight: pick your 5 favorite Christmas songs and get five other fellow-bloggers to do the same. As memes go, this one is easy and a great way to share the season with friends while reflecting on our youth and our own kid's excitement during the holiday season. My favorites:
5. "Grandma Just Got Run Over by a Reindeer" - kind of fits my sick sense of humor.
4. "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear"
3. "What Child is This?"
2. "Joy to the World."
And my alltime favorite, sung while the church lights are dimmed and the flame from a single candle is carried to everyone's else's candles at midnight on Christmas Eve:
1. "Silent Night"
And now, for my lucky five torch-bearers:
1. Moof (Payback's hell)
2. Dr. Couz
3. #1 Dinosaur
4. Rob at Musings of a Distractible Mind
By the way, if you really want to surprise a checkout person while shopping in a crowded mall, just smile and say "Thanks. Merry Christmas!" They'll do a double-take.
