While prepping for our turkey day, Chris catches me whistling in the kitchen. Hubby, knowing all too well that my bah-humbug genes are raging, says, "YOU are whistling 'Jingle Bells'? What's gotten into you?"
"It's the end of my favorite Christmas song," I explain.
He laughs. "YOU have a favorite Christmas song?"
"Yes. ' The River.' By Joni Mitchell."
"Humm," hubby says, "I didn't know Joni wrote Christmas songs."
"Just this one," I say and then recite the lyrics and there is no more need for explanations.
It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeers
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
