Step into Christmas!

It’s the first of December, huzzah!  Time to officially start the countdown to Christmas.  Few of you probably remember my countdown last year…I don’t even know how I managed to do it.  I posted a Christmas post everyday, while making a very time consuming present for my family, rehearsing for a huge show, and working three jobs.   But then again, I often manage to surprise myself.

Anyway, I am not going to do the countdown in quite the same way this year, but I wanted to kick off the month with a look back at what I posted this time last year.  I think it’s a good way to start my favorite month!

This commercial played every year back when the boy and I were younger, yet it has remained a part of both our Christmas memories. I think it’s a fitting way to start the countdown, especially since Coca Cola happens to be my favorite beverage!

Tidings Tidbit: Did you know that the Coca Cola company helped to establish America’s modern physical interpretation of Santa Claus thanks to Haddon Sundblom’s depiction of him for the company’s Christmas advertising in the 1930s?
