Share your Christmas Spirit in Polish/English

20 Dec 2009 /  #1
It's that time of year again. Are you in the mood? If not what puts you in a Merry Christmass mood? In this thread share your favorite Polish Kolendy, and other Christmas songs in Polish or English that put you in the mood. Also resent Christmas movies, videos, and books in Polish/English that put you in the mood as well as poems, pictures, logos, holiday decorations...etc. Go ahead and be funny and creative...

I am in a pre-Christmas mood and I've wrote a poem about it:

The winter is cold,
And the snowman is bald,
Maybe he needs a hat,
A warm and fuzzy one, just like my cat.
Ho, ho, ho, the cold weather is frightful.
But as long as I get my hot co-co,
I'll be so delightful.
And I don't care if it snows,
I'm inside, decorating my Christmas tree with red bows!

Are you in the mood?

Not yet to be honest. There may be snow, and I just decorated my flat tonight, but I am just not in the spirit yet. I think because I still have 3 days of work left I am not into the holiday mood.

I was shocked when I read that RATM had got the UK Christmas number 1...not because of the song, but because I had forgotten it was that close to Christmas!

Santa is in Christmas mood all the time, as well as in Polish mood because he only wears red and white uniform.

There may be snow, and I just decorated my flat tonight, but I am just not in the spirit yet

But you didn't share what is it that puts you in the mood.

I am sorry but did you know that "Jesus" was born in September?

Like you didn't know that X mas is just a modern version of some pagan Roman fest.

Here are some things that help to put me in the mood:
Putting up my tree and decorating it with ornaments I've collected over a quarter-century. Listening to Dean Martin's "Making spirits bright" CD and the soundtrack from the Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer animated TV show (I can sing 'em all). Ringing my turn-of-the-century sleighbells. Sending cards with holiday wishes to family and friends (now including some in Poland).

Watching "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "Scrooge" (1951 version of Dickens's "A Christmas Carol," starring Alistair Sim - in black and white, of course). Linus saying "for behooooold I bring you tidings of great joy" and "Peace on earth. Good will toward men," Scrooge singing "I don't know anything, I never did know anything, but now I know that I don't know, all on a Christmas morning" and Tiny Tim saying "God bless us every one" (even though I'm an atheist).

Dismissing all old hurts and injuries as I send cards and think about how special everyone I've ever known is to me. Re-uniting with old friends and spending time with family - old and new.

Snuggling under the blankets with my sweetie on a chilly winter morning.
Sitting quietly, looking at my beautifully-decorated tree.
Christmas cookies.
