Nobody Flashes Another Christmas Classic

Nobody Flashes

I was searching for a better rendition of this song, so many other artists have done it…

But, then I realized that without the ‘story’ behind it, the real meaning of the song is lost. And that’s why I kept coming back to this.

Most people who have seen this scene from the movie “Meet Me In St. Louis”— remember that it was the time of the World’s Fair in 1904. The father is thinking of dragging everyone out of St. Louis to New York, and in this scene Judy is trying to console her little sister about the move, because they will be leaving their friends, and in Judy’s case, the boy she had fallen in love with.

It’s a beautiful song. And I was thinking about all the people who have lost their houses to floods and fires this year in our own country, and how rough this Christmas will be for all of them.

Sad. Like this song. And yet, what matters the most: family…comes through every word.

Many people have sung this over the years, but Judy’s is still the most meaningful.

It’s Sunday. I’ll probably be posting Christmas songs every Sunday until Christmas.

I can’t help myself. I just LOVE Christmas carols.

And nobody does them better or with more creativity than Pentatonix.

Enjoy!

If You Don’t FEEL True Spirit of Christmas in this Video: I Feel Sorry for You

Nobody Flashes

The spirit of the divine…I think I might have posted this video once before year ago,

But, emotionally, the punch in the soul is still the same.

I’d rather listen to these simple people sing Christmas songs, than any Mariah Carey renditions.

Truly.

Enjoy!

Merry Christmas!

It’s Christmas Eve

You don’t even have to be a Christian to feel the holy spirit of Christ in this song. So please…turn out the lights, close your eyes, look at your tree, and enjoy.

I’ll be back on Monday.

In the meantime…

Merry Christmas to all my readers….I hope everyone has a great day of family filled with laughter, love, and hope.

God Bless us all.

Great Hope, Makes Great People

Nobody Flashesxmas-st-charles-5

It’s in the air: Christmas. Can you feel it too? My husband and I went out Friday night to the nearby old town of St. Charles, Missouri, where every tree is circled in white flickering bulbs, and hundreds of little quaint novelty stores were all decorated in thousands of lights, Christmas trees, and Christmas decorations. Santa’s of every shape and size on every shelf.

Actors were brandishing chestnuts in English dress and accents: singing groups were Caroling like Dickens characters: Santa’s of every size in every language were “Merry Christmasing” down the cobblestone streets. Lighted up Cinderella Carriages were pulled by beautiful white horses, their hooves clip-clopping down the streets, giving rides to lovers and families. Children were running, little girls dancing, local pubs busting with business, and the restaurants all had fires outside to warm the people eating outside, just to enjoy the festivals.

St. Charles, is probably just like many historical towns in our country. I imagine Williamsburg, Boston, and other tiny town squares, putting lewis-and-clarkon festivals with lights. Its old buildings sit on the Missouri river. It’s where Lewis and Clark started their trek to the Pacific Ocean. There’s a big statue of them with their dog…not far from where they started.

But…dummy me. I had never gone to such a thing. And it felt like Disneyland. (Which I hear is wonderful at Christmas too.)

We ate Chicago Style Pizza at one of the restaurants,, then started on our stroll back in time. By the time we were finished wandering into all the shops, we had consumed down: chocolate covered cherries, hot chocolate, Apple Caramel Cider, and our first Butterbeer soda.

Trust me. We NEVER do that. But the night was so beautiful, and to see the people all so happy was frankly, a gift from heaven after this last year.

And what about love? Yes. I will remember this night as a night that my husband choose the perfect gift for me. I had tears in my eyes, when my husband brought me this picture for Christmas:geroge-washtington-at-valley-forge

Now…my husband doesn’t read a single word I write, but he doesn’t have to. He knows me that well.

As we were walking past some very pretty Christmas trees, I told him, that I had just written a blog a few days before the election called: “This is our Valley Forge: Let’s Not Blow it.”

George Washington was by far, the best President our country ever had. He was the quintessence of a leader. If America needed anything at this time in our lives, it was a man who truly, with all his heart, believed in America. We needed a LEADER…and with the help of God, we got one.xmas-st-charles-2

Clint Eastwood summed it up very well with this tweet.

“Thank you America, I don’t have long left to live but now I know the last few years will be great, I can’t thank you enough #PresidentTrump,”

His twitter account was cancelled right after he posted it, but it has been said that his daughter said he didn’t tweet it.

No matter: It’s pretty much how millions of Americans feel. The America that our leaders have forgotten, can come back.

And I can feel it, can’t you?

There’s a new joy in life again. As Thomas Fuller once said:

“Great Hopes make great people.”

There’s no better time to turn off the TV and get out to enjoy some great people, than at Christmastime.

Find one of these festivals in your town, and do yourself a favor.

Don’t wait as long as I did to discover it.

Nobody Flashes the BEST Christmas Light Shows

Nobody Flashes…

THE SHEER JOY OF CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!

I was out at the shopping mall today, enjoying the crowds and the Christmas decorations…which got me in the mood for more.

If you like Christmas lights along with good music, then you will not want to miss this!

In fact, if you have a big screen and can put it up there…do it.

Enjoy!

God Bless Us…Everyone.

Nobody Reports

This video broke my heart: Where’s the Al Sharpton’s, holding HER hand? Where’s Eric Holder, comforting the widow? The longer Obama is in office the darker the days become. How are we suppose to dismiss ourselves from it all?

I wonder.

I got a solicitor call tonight..wanting to know if I would take a survey. “Who’s paying for it?” I asked. “I don’t know” said the lady. But the survey was all about promoting people to use more bikes. Wouldn’t I like my neighborhood to be more bike friendly? Would I go play soccer or basketball in the park?

“Lady, I live near Ferguson, do you really think anybody plays in the park?”

Heartbreaking.

Anyway, that’s why it’s so important to spend the next couple of days with my family. I hope every one of my readers have a great holiday, filled with laughs, good food, and wonderful moments of joy.

There WAS a good news story today. Last night in Germany, over 17,000 people gathered in the streets and sang Christmas Carols.:

From BreitBart:

The German PEGIDA movement held its largest meeting yet last night to protest what they call the ‘Islamisation of the Western World’, despite stiff opposition from all sections of Germany’s elite including politicians, media, and the arts.

In addition to the hundreds of banners with slogans such as ‘Against Hatred, Violence, and the Quran’, ‘Against Religious Fanaticism’, and ‘No Sharia in Europe’, the thousands attending brought song sheets which had been distributed online and sang favourite Christmas carols.

Oh, I would have loved to have been there and joined in.

And so, in the spirit of Christmas, I wish every one of you reading this the very best wishes for the holidays, whether you’re Christian or not, it’s the tradition of family and love, and great food, isn’t it?

And on that note, I plan to enjoy the next two days off….and I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did.

See you on Friday!

Nobody Suggest What You CAN Do With the Twelve Days of Christmas

Nobody Flashes

If you missed the Straight No Chaser guys the first time around, here they are, taking another rather annoying Christmas song and doing fun things! They have made a regular career out of themselves. Really, you’ll enjoy this if you haven’t seen it.

And I can even give everyone a fun thing to do with the family this Christmas…something I made up one Christmas for my own audiences:

You pick twelve people out of the crowd (in your case family) and each one gets a day. And they can say WHATEVER they want to make up. Everyone sings the “On the lst day of Christmas my true love gave to me…..and then the person who has ONE jumps up and says….whatever comes to his mind.

“Nine janitors trashing, eight kitties barking, seven Biden’s barfing, six men a drinking, FIVE Golden Banana Cakes! “

You get the idea. Just don’t give them too much time to think about it, so they have to STAND up and shout out when it first comes their turn, and it always helps if you do it after everyone has had a few glasses of wine to get them warmed up.

But I give you fair warning…you might hear things you never thought were possible, most of them having to do with sex.

Of course, if there are kids there, you must simply be silly, and by all means, let them join in.

Nobody Reports Important News About Santa

Chinses SantaMuslim SantaNobody Reports

I have urgent news…this could perhaps be as important as the questions concerning Obamacare. It seems, Nobody Knows what the real Santa Claus looks like! Megyn Kelly started this. She insists Santa is white. This is racist isn’t it? Sure it is! …but before you get upset about this important subject, I think it’s time we all took a vote, Nobody Suggests that to end this debate, everyone just pick a Santa he or she likes the best, and write to him.  After all, it’s Christmas. If you don’t get your present, pick a different one next year. Sooner or later, you’ll get your present. (Hint: If you are black, you must choose carefully.)

You and I Both…Missed This Flight…DARN.

Nobody Flashes:

I have until the 18th of December to try out a few of WordPress’s templates. Now, this is important: If any of the new ones are not as well liked as this format (which some have called ‘cold’ I’m not really sure why) tell me. Also, tell me if you prefer some of the other ones. Don’t worry…there won’t be many and after the 18th I will be back on this, if not before.

As for the video: I bet the WestJet executive that thought this promotional PR Santa stunt up got a big bonus this year. It was brilliant. It’s called WestJet Christmas Miracle.

Enjoy!

Ever since last week’s “Little Drummer Boy” I’ve really been getting in the Christmas spirit….and this video will do it quite nicely.

Here’s another fun one sent in an email from Kim Komando. The house…is really something. And I didn’t even notice the gnomes…did you?

Enjoy!
