The Calm Before The Storm

It is Christmas Eve.
Off work until January 5th.
Time to relax with a glass in hand prior to a couple of hectic days.
And what better way than to sit and watch the greatest Christmas film of all time It's a Wonderful Life and to listen to the greatest Christmas album of all time Phil Spector's A Christmas Gift for You.

Merry Christmas to you and yours and I hope that Santa is good to you

The Ronettes - I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

The Crystals - Santa Claus is Comin' to Town


  1. Phil Spector's Christmas Album? It's a Wonderful Life? A glass of something nice? Sound's like a perfect way to ease yourself into proceedings to me. Happy Christmas!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and yours too! Cheers (imaginary clinking of glasses - it's never too early on Christmas Eve, is it?)

  3. Our cat has already started on the Christmas cheer...I had to get his head out of a glass this morning. He was after the residual eggnog (and bourbon) at the bottom.

    Merry Christmas

  4. Merry Christmas, CC and Mrs CC.. Nice tunes today. I've joined the local tradition in the cafe by the farm - glass of port at 10.30 a.m.(ONE euro)

  5. Merry Christmas to you and yours CC. Oh, and if you click on my name you may listen to a fairly decent ska rendition of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus"..

  6. Will do Luca Merry Christmas to you and your family

  7. Two great tunes to celebrate Christmas. Hope you and yours have a great day tomorrow CC.

  8. What perfectly wonderful brace of activities for Christmas Eve. and yours receive all you wish for. SB.

  9. Seasons greetings CC as SB says above a couple of crackers there
