Arguably the best Christmas song EVER, this song holds a very special in my heart. It is my mom's favorite Christmas song and whenever it plays on the annual Christmas cd, she drops whatever she's doing and does the most adorable (okay, awkward and rhythm-less) dance in the living room. Picture Elaine, from Seinfeld's dance.
One of the biggest fights in the Bahr household occurred over who would open the Advent calendar every day. The chocolate was gross (and not really appropriate at 7:30 am) but I loved seeing what was under that little day! Advent calendars really helped me get in the Christmas mood as a kid.
13. Rock Band
I really want Rock Band for Christmas. But I'll need an XBox first. Thanks, Santa!
14. Christmas Candy
Every year my mom would make Christmas candy for all of our teachers and neighbors and I loved it!! What is funny, is that the candy didn't really have any flavor and was more of a hassle than anything, but she stuck with it. Moms are really great sometimes when you think about all of the things that they do to make the holiday season extra special for kids. My mom, especially, has gone above and beyond to make every year special. Even the year the gave me pencils.
Pre haircut? Gross. Post haircut? Now this is something I can work with!!!! I'd like this haircut and this man for Christmas. Thanks, Santa!
When I was 14 I got a plastic snowboard for Christmas. I cried. My parents tried and tried for me to be athletic when all I wanted was dance lessons. "When will they learn?" I thought. Bless their hearts for trying, it just wasn't meant to be. Until I became a 'mo and discovered the pressure that comes with it to be thin. So really with this scenario, we both win.
