Christmas Alphabet..........

Well what can I say folks? It's beginning to look a lot like la la la laaaaaaa........

Now truth be known I'm not the most christmassy person and I think this is mainly due to the fact of having worked in retail for far too many years to tell and when Christmas goods start appearing in your deliveries to go out on the shelves from October, that and the same Christmas tunes for 3 months solid, and watching people consume consume consume, well by December you've practically lost the will to live. The enormous commercial consumerism can just strip away the magic that I feel Christmas should have.

Anyhow that thankfully is now a life away from where I'm at now *sighs*.
I wanted to share some Christmas magic with you. My parents have a myriad of vinyl yes records! they have a large variety of various types of Christmas music from instrumental to choral, from traditional to Motown. So I wanted to share one tune of these many with you, I think my parents have a slightly different version but this I think is the original, so hop on over to the link below, in fact open it in a new tab, put it on loud, come back here and scroll through the pics I've patched together for your visual delight to (try!) and accompany this wee song. (all pics have been gathered from home, further afield and some blooming lovely dressed shop windows).

Here's the link: Christmas Alphabet - Dickie Valentine

C if for the candy trimmed around the Christmas tree

H is for the happiness with all the family

What? look at the wee sweet gingerbread and robin families!

R is for the reindeer prancing by the window pane

I is for the icing on the cake as sweet as sugar cane

This is the window from Choccy Woccy DooDah, all sorts of chocolate goodness in there, it is truly amazing the things that they create

S if for the stocking hanging on the chimney wall

T is for the toys beneath the tree so tall

you just know there are lots of toy goodies wrapped up in those packages!

M is for the mistletoe where everyone is kissed

A is for the angels who make up the Christmas list

S is for the Santa who makes every kid his pet

Be good and he'll bring you everything in your Christmas alphabet!

And here's just a few more festive shots just because I can........

Ahhhhhh the turkey, a must for so many of us

And so you don't feel all brittle and about to break into a million crystal pieces.....

wrap up against this sort of weather or better still stay at home and just be.

Remember the magic is in the wishing, seeing friends and family, the eating of dishes and the taking of a tipple or two(!), the giving and sharing of gifts and most importantly the loving of being with those you are with.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and ala tiny Tim 'God bless us every one'. Have a fab festive season ;0 X

What truly fabulous post! Gorgeous piccies and great music choice. I particularly liked the mistletoe picture with the words: kiss kiss! Know what you mean about consumerism, 'tis almost obscene at times. Have the most wonderful Christmas. (We have woken to snow at last. YAY!) :O)

Glad Tidings to You & Yours from Ireland. That Festive Tune is one that I was taught by my Granny when I was a child & I passed it on to my little daughter(21 now though!). Such a happy simple little song. Anyway, thought I'd drop by between 'grazing' to say hi...HI!
