This is a weekly hop for mewsic enthusiasts regardless if you follow our weekly theme or not if you have mewsic to share then we’re ready to dance with you. Otherwise, I ask that you do not link non-mewsic posts below to boost traffic to your site. You’re welcome to leave your URL in comments with a brief description inviting me to check it out. Thank you!

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

    Fabulous Christmas prayers & Christmas tuned house! MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND!!! I’m still putting up my Christmas village… I really need to downsize! bwahahahaha ho ho ho

    Bon Jovi sang this song well. I always like light shows that regular folks do. It was fun listening and I know the Doris Day song but not with those lyrics. Now, as for my name B-Blue Christmas by Elvis. I for a German song, Ihr Kinderlein Komnet which is very pretty. Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer sung by Burl Ives.I- It came upon a Midnight Clear sung by Julie Andrews and T-Tochter Zion, Freue Dich…beautiful! https://youtu.be/y9o2M7jHnlE

      Birgit,

      Thanks for including songs for your name. Not knowing the German song you mentioned I consulted YouTube for a reference and found it, here. I recognized it. Also, I know the Handel melody of Tochter Zion. Thanks for sharing these with me.

    Oh my, where to even begin with your post today! I love the idea of creating a Christmas song list with the letters of your name….will definitely be doing that in an upcoming post. And, I really love the 12 prayers of Christmas. I’ll probably be “borrowing” that one as well. Fantastic inspiration to begin the week! 🙂

      Lisa,

      I’m delighted you not only like the way I devised my song inspiration in this post but you want to make your own. 🙂 Feel free to borrow the “12 prayers of Christmas”. I borrowed it, too.

    Hi, Cathy!

    I thoroughly enjoyed your holiday mewsical selections, dear friend! It was a couple of years ago when I experienced for the first time the awesome sound and dazzling light show of the prog rock band Trans-Siberbian Orchestra. Their performances inspire us during the holiday season. The Piano Guys are new to me and I enjoyed their unique and enthusiastic performance. It is hard to believe the cute girl next door Doris Day will be 96 years old a few months from now. I have always enjoyed her singing and I appreciated her “Toyland” song. It was great to see and hear one of the most popular hair rockers of the 80s, Jon Bon, accompanied by long hair musicians of a different type, doing a great rendition of “Hallelujah.” The Skyliners have an unmistakable sound and I enjoyed their doo-wop style holiday song “You’re My Christmas Present.”

    So true. We can make the world a better place one person at a time. It starts with you and radiates outward, touching your immediate family, loved ones in your extended family, your friends and co-workers, your community, your city, state, country and the whole world.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Cathy. Have a super week!

      Tom,

      I think it was in the mid-80s when I discovered Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I usually associate this version of “Carol of the Bells” with the “Home Alone” films. That’s a fun movie! I’m a bit surprised to learn The Piano Guys are new to you but I’m happy to introduce you to them. They are awesome! Doris Day will be 96 in a few months. WOW, that’s neat! She has such a beautifully soft, feminine voice in her younger years. Thanks for dropping by for a visit this morning, my friend!

💕I love comments! Have a purrfect day & thanks for stopping by!💕
