In my last post I blathered about the sacred songs of Christmas (which I L O V E !). I thought of another I love singing. It isn’t sacred, but it is classic (hey, I am spirit and soul!). This one says:
“Everybody knows a turkey…”
Sure, I know a turkey. I know several. I bet you do, too. But it’s Christmas, so let’s just let them be. Let’s let them be who they are and just try to have some peace on earth and goodwill towards men (and turkeys).
AND – guess what!?? Just as I was preparing to post my last entry (“Let heavan and Nature Sing), my daughter, Stephanie, brought me a nice, hot Starbuck’s coffee. And can you believe what I read on the cup? It seems Starbucks and I are on the same page about this Christmas singing. Really the only difference between me and Starbucks is a few billion dollars, but, you know, other than that…
Here is what the cup actually said:
“Singing solo on busy streets attracts a few strange looks. Join a group and suddenly harmonies tour the neighborhood, playing to packed houses nightly.”
How can you beat coffee house wisdom?
NOTE TO SELF: Perhaps gathering a few friends and my very talented family and singing in a group for Christmas would be fun. We could call it “Christmas caroling!” Novel, eh? ;)
