Hands down, “It’s Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” by U2 is my absolute favorite Christmas song.

Because I’m off celebrating with my family, I’ll keep this short, but Merry Christmas!

P.S. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to the new year, for sure!

P.P.S. Bono is sexy in this video, but Edge will always be my favorite!

P.P.P. S. Someone remind me to tell the story of seeing U2 live in Indianapolis… ๐Ÿ™‚

A song from my childhood, for sure. Back when my Christmas was accompanied by the combined scents of crisp, cold air, gluehwein, roasted chestnuts, and hot bratwrust with warm brotchen. #ChristmasinGermany ๐Ÿ™‚

(Can you believe this year is almost over? I don’t know about you, but it’s zipped by insanely fast!)

Wham! “Last Christmas”ย

#MondayMorningMusic – All I Want for Christmas – Love Actually Version

Mornin’.

We’ve been dealing with the cooties over two households since before Thanksgiving – this is the second time I’ve been sidelined by the stupid stomach bug going around.

In any case, since Thanksgiving is over, I thought I’d spend the rest of the Mondays in the year, sharing my favorite Christmas tunes.

The first is “All I Want for Christmas”. I’ve seen Love Actually a zillion times, it seems, and mo matter how many times I watch, though, I always cry during the Christmas concert scene. I. Cannot. Help. Myself. ๐Ÿ™‚ – one of my favorite movies – so many wonderful actors and stories! I’ll definitely be watching it at least once before Christmas.

So to kick off the Christmas season, here’s the clip from Love Actually.

p.s. Would you believe I had no idea it was a Mariah Carey song?
