Let it snow

What means Christmas to me? First of all, I think it’s a romantic time, especially because my husband dropped the big question at Christmas…. (already quite a few years ago).
But I like the season anyway. To get in the mood for Christmas I’ll visit the cosy decorated shopping malls, buy presents and of course decorate the Christmas tree.
I think a Christmas tree should be real, I don’t like the fake stuff, so we keep searching until we’ve found a beautiful one. Days before Christmas I get my cookbooks from the shelves to come up with delicious recipes.
This time I baked some nice Christmas cup cakes together with my daughter, she likes to be busy with her mom in the kitchen. At her school they organize a Christmas dinner where everyone makes a dish. Before dinner all the kids get together around the fire, to sing Christmas carols.
And of course during the baking and cooking at home, we listen to nice Christmas music. As a real Elvis fan, my favourite Christmas song is Blue Christmas. Although, Merry Christmas Baby is also a great song. Elvis his favourite time of year was Christmas and he has recorded quite a few Christmas CDs. Maybe there will be a day that I’ll visit Graceland at Christmas time…
But to spice up this article I’ve chosen for a video by Brian Setzer. This video was recorded live at the Brian Setzer Orchestra’s Christmas Extravaganza show in 2005 in the USA and when you hear this song you really getting into the Christmas mood.
I saw Brian live 2 years ago (with The Stray Cats) in Amsterdam, but if he would visit the Netherlands with his Christmas show, I would certainly go.
Last year we could literally sing the song White Christmas, because on Christmas day it began to snow in the Netherlands. I hope this year will be a white Christmas too; on Christmas eve we’re going on a trip to the woods, with our whole family. How romantic… walking in the snow, drinking a hot chocolate and even a visit from Santa himself.
The next day when we come home we will make a nice Christmas dinner for everyone and our favourite dessert is chocolate fondue. Very nice with marshmallows, banana and strawberries.
Have a rockin’ Christmas everyone!!!
