Today has been a great day! Mostly because October 15th marks the day I start listening to Christmas music. Don't judge too quickly. I'm not one of those Christmas fanatics. I don't begin decorating or anything like that until around Thanksgiving time. I just love Christmas music and honestly, it puts me in a good mood to hear it.
Also, this day reminds me of October 15th last year when I lived with Kristi Foster. We realized that we were both huge Christmas music fans and I quickly adopted Kristi's October 15th tradition. It was 11:50 PM and we only had 10 minutes to figure out what song we were going to play first when the clock struck 12. We couldn't find a recording of the Chipmunk Christmas song, so Kristi found it in a song book. Yes, you guessed it. At 12 we sang, "Christmas, Christmas time is here..." at the top of our lungs along with other Christmas carol favorites. What a good memory.
