Currier and Ives...

I just love the holiday season. There's something so wonderful and (for a lack of better word) magical about it. I was listening to the Christmas radio station the other day, and "Sleigh Ride" came on. You know, the last bit says:

"There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy,
When they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie.
It'll nearly be like a picture print of Currier and Ives.
These wonderful things are the things we remember all through our lives..."

What exactly is a picture print of Currier and Ives? I've always wondered, so I did a little research. Here's one:
It is lovely, isn't it? And the part that says, "These wonderful things are the things we remember all through our lives" is so true. It amazes me how my memories of Thanksgiving and Christmas are stuck so permanently in my mind. I love traditions (maybe a little too much). I'll probably be writing about our family holiday traditions some over the next month, along with my favorite Christmas music and movies. I would now, but I don't want to rush things along too much (says the girl who put up her Christmas tree on the first day of November).

I've recently had a few new people visiting my blog and commenting, and that made me so excited! I love to blog, and it makes it that much better to know that others are reading my blog and enjoying it. =)

Until next time,

  1. I had never even looked closely enough at the words to realize what was being said! That's such a good find! Such a sweet picture too. That picture is lovely.

  2. That is really nice. Traditions are amazing, and everyones are different. Its nice to have those things to look back on.
