On The First Day Of Christmas

Happy, happy Saturday people!

So I did something crazy.

Ahem. So last time I mentioned playing a carol on my violin/fiddle every day til Christmas? And maybe posting it?

Um.

Well.

Here.

Aright, aright, Iย know it’s terrible, and I know it sounds horrible, and I know that I am 99.9% + 1% crazy! I am well aware.

But that being said, I hope you enjoy my feeble attempt at covering a beautiful song anyway!

One of the things that really really really ticks me off this time of year is the annoying commercialism. Not even a day after Halloween (another holiday ranging in the strange category) and stores are already saying to get the dratted Christmas magic!

There’s nothing magical about Christmas.

In fact, Christmas isn’t ever mentioned in the Bible to celebrate. Get that in your heads.

So why do we?

I’m not preaching. I don’t want to. But for me, Christmas is celebrating the hope of Jesus’ birth. Because if Jesus wasn’t born, we could never have been saved.

For those who don’t believe that, for those who do believe but don’t celebrate, and for those who do, I hope I didn’t get y’all mad, but I do hope you enjoy the instrumentals, bad as they are. ๐Ÿ™‚

In other news, I got the biggest book haul I’ve had in a while. Thank God for public libraries.

  1. You’re good at playing! Even my cat liked it. When I turned it on she jumped on my bed and started purring. XD Yay for books! I’m currently reading five books, and for some reason I thought, “Hey, let’s get more books from the library even though I’m in the middle of tons!”

      1. Iโ€™ll play your music to her every day until Christmas. XD Thatโ€™s the spirit! Why should the fact that you have other books to read stop you from reading more? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I also started reading an ARC I got today despite the fact I was planning on finishing another book. Oh well…

      2. The struggle is real. Iโ€™ve actually only written two book reviews on my blog because of it, but Iโ€™m determined to start writing them much more often in an attempt to improve. ๐Ÿ˜‚ But all my reviews on Goodreads are just screaming and flailing.

      1. I was planning on putting it on the blog, but then I lost my iPod…I should probably find that, but I’m running out of places to look…

      2. Well, Kenai is only allowed in a specific portion of the house, but he would totally do something like that. Juneau wouldn’t even notice.

      3. I had a friend who liked pigs so her nickname was Peggy.
        I think everyone has an animal species that they understand, like people persons, dog people, cat people, etc.
