Christmas Don’t Be Late for the fun Up On The Housetop and the Ringing Of The Bells

Ah Monday, why must you arrive so quickly?  It’s my Birthday week – sure, it’s not until Friday, but I’m entitled to celebrate all week, right?  To kick off the week, let’s with Monday’s Music Moves Me – I should have found some birthday songs, but this month’s theme is Christmas and that’ll do.  Especially some fun ones.

Let’s start this week off with one of my favorite artists, Reba, with a fun song “Up On The Housetop”:

Next up is the original Alvin and the Chipmunks with “Christmas Don’t Be Late”:

And finally, I’m sharing this because it totally cracked me up when I watched it, and will too – The Muppets with “Ringing Of The Bells”:

Enjoy your Monday!


Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:


I have the supreme honor and privilege of being a co-host with the inimitable Xmas Dolly and her cohorts in crime, Lorie of The Shewbridges of Celebration, Florida, and Callie from JAmericanSpice for Monday’s Music Moves Me – want to join in the fun? It’s easy peasy! Just find a tune that rocks your boat, post it and link up – don’t forget to grab Xmas Dolly…er, um, I mean her button…over at her place here. Check out Xmas Dolly’s sidebar for the random themes we sport each week – and you can always ask for a specific theme of music you like, too. Check out the other music lovahs and let’s jam!

I’m also linking up for what was the Sunday Song Hop and now is Pinning and Singing on the Weekend over at 5 Minutes Just For Me: I’m going to have to get busy pinning, but at least it’s to share music, too:
