A Few Of My Least Favorite Things

I love Christmas. I love holidays in general, really, but Christmas is one of those… well, you know. It’s so magical. And I love Christmas music, I remember growing up one of our local classifieds ad… book… things used to publish this book of Christmas songs every year, I guess so you could go caroling? And we did.

Learning To Love The Happy Planner
