I was just at Michele’s who’s talking about Christmas. Specifically “Why this atheist celebrates Christmas”. Good times, friends and families, crazy Italian traditions… great stuff.
Only, I have one problem: It’s not Christmas for me….
I haven’t heard Nat King Cole yet.
Yeah, we got the tree, decorated, 99% of the shopping done, yadda yadda yadda…
It’s not Christmas until “The Christmas Song” comes on the radio. Not a CD, not elevator muzak, not Natalie Cole, not Alvin & the Chipmunks.
“The Christmas Song”. Nat King Cole. Radio.
What triggers your mind to go “Hey! Christmas is here!”?
