Wordless Wednesday: Merry Christmas!

Instead of a photo, I’m sharing one of my favorite Christmas tunes for Wordless Wednesday (technically Tuesday when this publishes). Crank up the volume and play the video. It doesn’t get a whole lot better than “Father Christmas” by The Kinks.

“Have yourself a merry merry christmas
Have yourself a good time
But remember the kids who got nothin
While you’re drinkin down your wine”

Merry Christmas!

Donde esta Santa Claus?

I decided to take a bit of a blogging break after completing NaBloPoMo in November. I didn’t post for 4 whole days. I have to admit, I kind of went into withdrawal. I wrote stuff for clients and all, but I actually missed posting daily.

Anyway, today I decided to use a writing prompt from Mama Kat’s Writer’s WorkshopTake a line from a song you love and turn it into the title of your next blog post. Let the content follow. As you can see, I went with a Christmas theme.

donde esta santa clausWhere are you, Santa Claus?

I know we’re supposed to believe you live in the North Pole and all, but where exactly are you?

Biz wants to know. He’s 4 now, and he’s asking questions like “Is Santa Claus in real life?”

He wants directions to your house so he can see that you are real. I looked on Google Maps, and I couldn’t find anything. Unless you really do live in Alaska. That location, however, is contrary to everything written about you.

Oh, and despite turning 4, Biz still has no desire to sit on your lap. You freak him out. The whole concept of you, Mr. Claus, is just a tad bit too big for my preschooler.

G, at 7, is a different story. He believes in your magic. He talks to our Elf on the Shelf, Elfie, and relays messages to you.

I hope you are getting these messages and taking note. Because I’m pretty sure I’m missing most of them, and I don’t want his Christmas ruined because that darn elf couldn’t play telephone.

We might not know where you are, but we are ready for you. We hung our stockings yesterday. Biz even pretended to be you and made sure that each stocking was positioned for optimal gift dropping.

We’re ergonomically friendly here, Santa. We know you have a big night ahead of you.

Wherever you are right now, I hope you have coffee.

You can download Donde Esta Santa Claus by Guster – who are Jewish, by the way – on iTunes. I highly recommend it for your Christmas playlist.

And speaking of writing prompts, have you downloaded your free 2013 Writing Prompts and Editorial Calendar yet?

Merry Christmas (Wham! Style)

I’ve heard a lot of terrible versions of the song “Last Christmas” this year.

Taylor Swift and Ashley Tisdale? Please stop. We all know the best version of this classic Christmas song is by Wham!

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart. This year, I give you the frosted, feathered goodness that is Wham!

Watch, listen and enjoy. As you do, I’ll more than likely be watching (and quoting) A Christmas Story, avoiding pie and helping my kids figure out their new Christmas gifts.

Merry Christmas everyone!
