To Christmas, we go!
That’s right, the sooner the better. For my family, anyway, the day after Thanksgiving is when the Christmas season officially begins. That’s when the husband starts putting up the lights outside and I start listening to all my favorite Christmas songs. *NSYNC “Home For Christmas” is still the best Christmas album in the world, period.
I could go for those Hawaiian Christmas songs, too. Anything with the sound of a ukulele in the background is welcome. What about you? Do you have favorite holiday songs? Tell us, please. Inquiring minds want to know.
I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! Stay safe, people!
“What. I can’t believe I’ve never had city chicken, and what’s not to like… breaded and fried cubes of meat on a skewer… that’s the best kind of food there is!” — Angie
“Sometimes we forget that simple is best. These toast appetizers are not just simple, but they’re truly the best. Who doesn’t like toasts? You can eat them anytime, anywhere, topped with anything you like!” — Angie
“Hey, what’s this, a healthy donut?! The words healthy and donuts are rarely mentioned together, but when they are they get my attention immediately. You have to be open to such a possibility. If I can have donuts that are healthy, I’m sure I’ll be in donut heaven.” — Angie
“This is such a great idea to give away this holiday season. I love the candy canes and peanuts added to this.” — Jhuls

Angie I still need to make the cheese tree… or even a cheese ball! Maybe this year! I love Christmas music – I’m going to look up your album now and annoy everyone at home lol! Thank you so much for continuing to host Fiesta Friday – I will host again very soon! Big hugs xxx
Make it soon, Laurena. Easy to put together and perfect for all-day snacking. Your family will love the *NSYNC album; it’s different from the other more traditional ones. It’s Christmas with style ?
Hi, Angie, what a lovely appetizer tree at the top! We have started our Christmas decorating as well; my favourite Christmas album is Michael Bublé’s “Christmas”, but my all-time favourite song is the original version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” with Judy Garland. Thank you for hosting another great party; I am sharing #5 Green Beans with Chorizo and #6 Longaniza in Red Sauce. Have an awesome weekend!
Michael Bublé is good. Celine Dion has a great rendition of O Holy Night, too. So many great Christmas songs. Love both chorizo and longaniza! I’ll be sure to them out. Thanks, Irene!

Angie, the Christmas Tree appetizer is a great idea!
I think lots of people are putting their decorations up ‘early’ this year, looking for some sparkle to brighten up what’s not been the best of years… I’m still deeply into Autumn, though – don’t allow myself to think about Christmas until at least most of the leaves are raked up. In the meantime, I’m collecting ideas for suitable food to enjoy!
My favourite Christmas song (or one of them anyway!) is ‘Baby it’s cold outside’… very suitable for cold UK festivities… 🙂
Yeah, I get it. It’s hard to get in the mood for Xmas with the current weather. I was practically in my shorts yesterday! Can’t wait for the husband to get the fireplace going once it gets cold. We’ve been stocking up on firewood! We should also stock up on food ideas, too. Btw, there’s been such controversy regarding that song recently, but it’s such a catchy tune.

WE follow suit, the day after Thanksgiving is for leftovers and decorating! Have a great week ahead, and enjoy it all!
Yup, I think most people do that. This year, though, I’ve seen Xmas decorations put up even earlier. Understandable, I suppose.
