Classic Christmas Song: Frosty the Snow Man!

Click to sent Christmas ecards
Remember Frosty? How can we forget! He might not be around now but when the snow comes he'd be right next to our house. I still remember how I used to be glued to the TV watching Frosty and singing along. But I'm familiar with the color version of Frosty not the black and white version. Thanks to the magic of You Tube here's the black and white Frosty. It's the classic version and I love the song. I love signing along. Why not sing Frosty in August? It's fun anytime!

The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole

The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole is one of the classic songs and my favorite song. I love Nat King Cole.

Just so you can rewind and sing along I've searched the lyrics and pasted here. It's the exact lyrics. Who knows you can practice and sing at your school or community's Christmas special performance too!

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys
And goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so, I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said
Many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to.. You!

How to Survive A Family Christmas

Are you getting together in a big family Christmas this year? Or even for thanksgiving for that matter. I think this video can apply to both the holidays. You should watch it right before you go to you Aunt Sarah or Uncle Trevor's house for the big family get together. I really liked the part about how you can dodge questions like 'what you're going to do with your life'. Plus I love food so I don't mind eating!

Christmas Gift Ideas from Your Favorite Channels!

Sometimes we're so busy shopping around in the local shops or the shops that we see giving sales on TV we forget the stuff that we like the most. Just a reminder for you if you do like watching TV you can always buy gifts online from your favorite channels. Here's are my favorite channels that you can get your Christmas gifts from:

National Geographic has the perfect gifts for the adventurer/ explorer in all of us. They have the perfect gear for people who travel a lot. You can give travel packs or travel kits. Make sure you check out the clothing section -- even if you're not traveling they're the perfect Christmas gifts to give because they're light-weight durable clothing that you can wear even in the urban jungle. And if you asked what my favorite section of the National Geographic gift store is it has to be the photography section. They even have field guides! Hey I can dream can't I?

In the Discover Store besides the DVDs and Books, there are toys for kids starting from the age of 1 and up. They also have toys for the big kids too they're just called 'gadgets'. You can choose from a variety of gadgets from weather stations to novelty gadgets and bluetooth and GPS gadgets. My favorite gift would be the Turbo Cell Phone Charger that's only $19.95

Perfect place for moms and dads who love cooking is of course the Food Network. Here you can choose your gifts according to the show, or by brand. You're not just going to get the shows and cooking books you can get apparel to wear while cooking or stuff for the kitchen like cookware, tabletop and serve ware and kitchen appliance. Mom would just love it. Of course the best gift idea that I love is the "Cooking for Dummies Kit"!

Lets not forget the History Channel too. It's for anyone who loves to learn or watch history docu-drama and documentaries. Check out their gift finder that'll make your life a lot easier when it comes to picking and choosing for Christmas gifts.

And of course there's the regular non-cable channels like ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox Merchandise where you can get your friends and family gear from their favorite shows. Just don't forget, this year when you're shopping for Christmas gifts consider other channels of shopping too! (Pun intended!)
