I’ve loved sharing my favourite Christmas songs with you this week. So much so that I’m going to keep sharing until Christmas Eve (only another six songs in total, but I couldn’t not share any of them). So, my first song is a classic. It really needs no another introduction than to say it is ‘The Christmas Song.’
This song really takes me back to my childhood. It’s one my Mum played a lot. She loved Christmas music. Actually, she loved everything about Christmas. When I hear this song, I’m in a living room filled with Christmas decorations, a big tree, covered in tinsel, and something magical in the air that sprinkled Christmas all over us. Wonderful memories.
My next song is from a little later. It’s still a classic, but it’s not so much connected to my parents. ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham! is one of my favourites. I don’t care how cheesy it may be, or how dated the video, I absolutely love it. I spent quite a large part of my teenage years madly in love with George Michael, so that probably has a bearing on this choice.
It still seems surreal that he’s not here any more.
Okay, onto a happier note. I just wrote this really silly Christmas poem, and I thought I’d share it with you.
Eldred The Naughty Elf
Eldred was a naughty elf,
he loved to lark around
whilst other elves worked on their toys,
He oft’ could not be found.
Moving tools the workers used,
they scratched their heads, confused,
hammers, screwdrivers, sparkly glue
disappeared; they were bemused.
But Eldred couldn’t hide his glee,
he chuckled, his eyes shone bright,
’til Santa grabbed him by the scruff
and told him to make things right.
