It's All About Christmas

Today is the second Monday of the month...and yes Christmas is getting nearer...and I always find myself in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the season.

I originally intend to post several things here...but just got a call and well, at 7:41 in the morning...I am not just in a mood to say it's a beautiful Monday!

I am not a self-acclaimed self-reliant person...but to get a call from somebody...to tell me about a problem he is having on the road...when I am still in my pajamas...and knowing I am helpless and knowing my mood swings...and a little twist and turn of my day can make me go back to being pill dependent and all is just outright selfish! First off, not only it will make me feel helpless...it puts me in a panic mood and to reject my call telling my I'm not a help after all?! F@ck that! Why called me in the first place?!?

Enough...

Okay...where was I...ah, Mamalang is our lovely FUN Monday host this week...and she sets the following as theme --

It's the Christmas season, and I want you to tell us what are your three favorite Christmas Carols and a picture of your favorite Christmas "thing". It could be a Christmas tree, or your mantle, or a church, you in a Santa hat.

So, it will be all about Christmas here...at least for today!

I am still not done with this whole decorating thing at home...but if you want to see a glimpse of what I had last year, click
HERE. That quite sums up what are some of the things I love about Christmas...

This part, I just added quick...one theme for Fun Monday last year was to feature a favorite ornament we have in our Christmas tree...so, if you could take a look at my quick header! ;) Yup, yup...

And for my favorite carol...I mean my favorite Christmas song...here is one, Nat King Cole's The Christmas Song...used to be I put it into auto play, but it might annoy some people...so there, just click it if you want to listen with me!




That's my entry for Music Monday too...

Okay, I've heard of those inverted Christmas trees before but this is the first one I've seen. Do you know what the story is behind hanging your Christmas tree upside down? Dothat with a live tomato plant and you get more tomato. I love your swags with the little pearl lights.

Mariposa said...

Hi Faye...the inverted christmas tree...is not meant for anything, it was an attempt for create a christmas chandelier thingy...LOL And I did not hear anything about it...it's just that, as an artist, I try to make use of stuff, and for that case, a small christmas tree! ;)

Yes, I know about tomatoes...I love the farm...and I learn that in my teens!

Btw...I'm not sure about the story behind hanging tree inverted...I've read in the past though about soldiers missing their families when they're away during war that they made "trees", I'd love to know though...

Mariposa said...

Okay...back...lol

Mom said...the tip of the Christmas should to heaven...and not otherwise...maybe that's what you meant? Well, in the first place...it's being hanged to serve as a christmas chandelier...I said inverted tree since most people ask, how I did it. You can also make just swags...but then again, as I said, I try to reconcile things...

I think anything inverted is not a tree anymore...unless, it was meant to look like...and was inverted to send some message...

Very nice decorations from last year. Will you be doing the same this year? I often think I should take pictures of how I decorate at Christmas so that I will remember how to do it again the following year. I often forget where and how I arranged things!

MommyWizdom said...

Oh, that's a beautiful arrangement. I like that song very much!

Our decorations are also still in progress. I was bad and went over the limit of three song choices *he-heee.*

Have a great week!

It's still a lot of time to decorate ! I don't know why every year it gets earlier ! I used to do our Christmas tree only one week before Christmas and still a lot of people do it here !

Lovely choice for Music Monday during the holiday season! Thanks for being a devoted player.

Pamela said...

Yes! The Christma Song (I used the alternate title on my post because I didn't link to it.) You made my day by having him singing here.

I'm sorry your day started out that way.

If you listen to Nat King Cole a few times that should help. Sure helps me!

Pamela said...

ps
One of my friends hung her tree inverted -- to keep her small children and pets away from it.

About as good a reason as any?

Ali said...

Great song, good choice. Your decorations look fantastic too

Sayre said...

Your tree is just lovely. I like your ornament - did you make her?
