Tis' the season. The season for merriment. For giving and getting gifts. For helping those less fortunate. For spending more time with your family.
I love Christmastime. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love the Christmas decorations, and the Christmas movies. Like "A Christmas Story", "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation", and "Elf". ("Santa! SANTA! I know him! I know him!")
One of my most favorite things about Christmas are the Christmas carols. Some of my favorite ones are 'Jingle Bell Rock', 'Mary Did You Know?', 'Carol of the Bells' and 'Little Drummer Boy'. And, say what you will, when Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' comes on, I turn that stuff up and shake my money maker.
Alright, I pretty much love all Christmas carols, except for 'Feliz Navidad'.
Cheese and biscuits! Do I hate that song. One year, my cousin sang the song over and over and OVER - about 348 times. He sang it as "Fleas on my Dog'. To this day, that is how is sounds to me. (Yep, it's in your head now too. You're welcome.)
This got me thinking that I could share a little of our family Christmas with you.
So, without further ado, here's the 12 Days of Christmas: Mossey Style.
12Pack of Blue Moon
11Peanut Butter Balls eaten daily
10People I wanted to punch in the mall parking lot

7People I forgot to send Christmas cards
6Times the tree fell over
5POUNDS I'VE GAINED!!!
4Attempts at making fudge
3Family members arguing

Okay, so this list isn't exactly how my Christmas plays out, however parts of it, oh there are parts of it, that are absolutely true. But, I'll leave that to you to figure out. *Mwahahaha!*
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday surrounded by good food and people you love. Because, really, that is all that matters.
