This Christmas by Megan Slayer

I’m the kind of gal who doesn’t play Christmas music until after Thanksgiving. It’s not that I don’t like Christmas music. I do. Every time I hear A Marshmallow World by Dean Martin, I think of my cat because he’s got white marshmallowy puffy furry feet. 

That said, I don’t want inundated with it for two whole months. I just can’t do it. I don’t even like to watch the Hallmark Christmas marathons until Thanksgiving – of course most of them are all reruns by then, but whatever. 

This year? It’s a little different. Not only am I willing to listen to Christmas music, but I’m game to watch those movies, too. I started back in November. Why? I wanted the guaranteed joy and the guaranteed happy ending. 

Does that sound silly? I hope not.

It’s 2020 and we all need some good. Really. It’s a stressful time and fraught with all sorts of upset. In the midst of this, there needs to be some positive. I find it in Christmas music and Christmas movies. I need that guaranteed happy ending. I want to know everyone will get their heart’s desire at the end and it’ll be satisfying. 

Sure, there are non-Christmas movies and songs that are just as uplifting, but when it’s raining instead of snowing, when it’s windy instead of being just nicely chilly…when the ground is mucky and we’re all stuck inside, it’s nice to have something that’s comfort food for the ears and eyes. 

Plus, I get some great decorating ideas from the movies and songs to add to my holiday playlist. 

What about you? Are you the one who decorates the day after Halloween? Or are you the one who waits? I’d love to know!
