It's not Christmas without Alvin, Simon and Theodore
My favorite song around the holidays has always been the Chipmunks Christmas song - I can still remember my mom playing the record (yes, the record from the 60s) when we were kids. My parents had a turntable and always played records. (I wonder where all those records are now? I'm going to find out...)
Does anybody else remember this record? Please tell me I'm not the only one.
Another Christmas favorite? This calendar.
For as long as I can remember my mom put this calendar out in December and every. single. morning. before school there would be a fight over "who got to move the mouse."
Today there is an intense fight over who GETS this calendar passed down to them.
My mom has recently released the information that ... the daughter that gives her the first grandchild will get it.
And grand-dogs don't count.
Talk about pressure! Sneaky, Mom. Reeeaaaal sneaky. Also? Not the reason you want your children to procreate I assume. (I kid, I kid).
What is something random about the holidays that you love?
