This week, Kim wanted us to share our favorite song of all time and why. Since I recently wrote a similar post here, I thought I’d deviate only slightly by sharing a favorite Christmas song. Kim won’t mind, I’m sure. She is sweet like that.
My favorite Christmas song is “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)” written in 1946. I especially love Natalie Cole’s version – even more than her daddy’s version. I like to pretend I sound like her when I belt it out. And, you won’t EVEN believe me. But, I sang this song Monday night in Hilton Head with my K.T. man, his brother Leiv, and my sweet sister-in-law, Lindsey. It wasn’t karaoke night. But, where I come from, every night should be karaoke night. Right, Renice?
I always thought the line “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire” sounded lovely until I actually got a whiff of them roasting on the streets of London several years ago. Beautiful thought. Not very aromatic.
Still love that song.
And, Jack Frost is certainly nipping on my nose here in the Peach State. I suspected that I would be leaving Jack in good ole’ Oklahoma. He must love following me around.
Your turn! What’s your favorite Christmas song?
