Shoulder shimmies + holiday offer reminder December 11 2014
The songs of the holiday season...
Holiday music started in the Partridge headquarters this week, and I have been surprised by how many songs I've attached to certain memories or movies over the years. Do they do this for you too?
Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You" not only prompted a little shoulder shimmy sing-along, but took me back to the early 90's when my dad would turn it on our home stereo system Christmas morning just before we dove head first into the presents under the tree. That song was the start of our day for as long as I can remember, and even with our own families now it remains a tradition. Who knew my dad's celeb crush on Mariah Carey could turn into such a long cherished memory?
Then I'll also hear songs like Mele Kalikimaka and all I can picture is Clark Griswold dreaming of his in-ground pool, or "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas," which is attached to Kevin McCallister singing into a makeshift hairbrush microphone in his bathroom after he's discovered he has the house to himself.
This year, I know some fun new traditions and memories will be made as my sister and brother-in-law welcomed a baby boy into the family in August. My first nephew! He's too young to remember much about this year, but I hope 30 years from now he's also developed some delightful, song-prompted, memories from our holiday gatherings. If my sister and I have anything to do with it, I know Mariah will be at the top of his list :)
Don't forget about our exceptional holiday offers this year:
