Friday Night of Halloween Weekend

Playlist now playing: What Child is This? (aka: Greensleeves.) I love this song, and the harp is so beautiful. Anyone who's known me for a long time, knows that when the first really cold days arrive, I dig out some Christmas music to play! It makes me happy!

Have a wonderful, fun, blissful & safe Halloween weekend. I leave you with this hilarious quote from It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

Linus: "You don't believe the story of the Great Pumpkin? I thought little girls always believed everything that was told to them. I thought little girls were innocent and trusting."

Sally Brown: "Welcome to the 20th century!"


  1. Great list and links! Thanks so much!
    Happy weekend,

  2. Cold weather and Christmas songs! I second that emotion!!! I can not wait until the snowflakes fly! *sighs blissfully* I am truly only alive when it is snowing!

    "Greensleeves"! What a delicious-lovely taste for the ears to savor! As I don't have that particular song handy to play, I think I will go change my shirt. Something with green sleeves...!

  3. One of my all time favorite songs...Greensleeves! Yep... makes me smile!

  4. Another great list. And thanks for the shout out. :)

  5. I wish I could do some of those call outs, but I'm doing butt-in-chair writing in November with Nano.

    And good luck to you with that, however you choose to work it.

    Wait-one more thing. Is it just me or did this blog look change again? :-)

  6. Wow, that really is a list! There are a few on there that are new to me, so thanks for the head's up. :)

  7. I love Christmas music, too, Becky. I play it all through December. thanks for all your posts. Susan

  8. I love Christmas music - and I definitely start to hum carols as soon as the weather starts to get cold. It warms me up inside :)

    Plus, we had Joy To The World at our (august) wedding!

  9. You sure do comply with your word. Thank you for the list Becky. I just may get brave and participate in one of those.

    Happy Halloween!!

  10. Wow! Great list!! Thanks for posting that. And love the quote!
