LJ Caroling - cellophane
the story of an invisible girl

LJ Caroling
The weather outside is frightful, so it makes sense to do your Christmas caroling indoors. I saw a sitcom in which they would order takeout and sing to the poor delivery people, but my approach is simpler.

I have a Grand Tradition of useing Phone Posts to share a carol, or at least a Christmasy song that I like, every December. I continued it this evening, sneaking out of my parents' apartment and singing it quietly in the street in the hopes of disturbing nobody at midnight.

To get the full Caroling Experience, you must listen to several. Don't worry; I have links. (:

2003 Hippopotamus Song Singing this song makes me laugh.
2004 Blue Christmas This one makes me sad/happy.
2005 RudolphThis one makes me feel happy and childlike.

These are kind of like my Christmas gifts to you, such that they are. Oh, and if you weren't around last year, I definitely recommend checking out my Ode to Christmas, which will hopefully make you laugh not run away screaming.

Peace, joy, love, and happiness to you. Merry Christmas!

I would have thought you would have chosen It's So Chic To Be Pregnant At Christmas by Nancy White in honor of your sister-in-law.

Merry Christmas!

Now I've got the Hippopatamus Song running through my head.

At least it is playing nice with the other flotsam and jetsam having a party up there!

Aww, I just clicked the song links - so cool! I thought you were linking to some mp3 online of the orignal artist or something. I didn't realize YOU were carolling for us. What a cool idea!!! I may just copy you. Anyway, just wanted to say that that is very cute, and you have a lovely voice! What a great post!

Oh! I guess I should have made that clearer, huh? Funny -- since I knew what it was, I just assumed it was obvious to everyone.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked 'em. (: I had fun singing them!

Thanks especially for the link to the Santa bit. By daughter laughed her a** off!

Merry Christmas, and have a Great Holiday season,

Mark
