It’s official. Christmas season is here!
I just did it. I pressed play on Songza’s Christmas-themed playlist, Yuletide Swing. Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” fills my ears with its familiar melody, transporting me back to my childhood and annual Christmas concerts. I’m wearing a blue velvet dress with white lace, my blonde hair swept away from my face by a velvet headband.
Mr. Crosby’s smooth voice fades into the first verse of “The Twelve days of Christmas” and I picture a painted paper tree adorned with painted paper gifts. The perfect juxtaposition with which to begin this post.
