The 2013 Christmas Music of Perfumeland
I am sitting on my deck having a great time armchair traveling around the world listening to Christmas music in several languages selected by various Perfumistas. Often I avoid Christmas due to crass commercialisation. I definitely avoid all shopping malls and spend December on the beach. The posts below, which are paired with perfume selections, have really brought the spirit of the season right to my door.
Regardless of one’s personal beliefs we can all thank Jesus for a holiday break and time to spend with family and loved ones or for just actually having the time to help those in need. Eau my Magdalena; that last sentence sounds like the Queen’s Christmas message (which I always enjoy watching). Let’s move right along to…
It is summer here in New Zealand. On Christmas Day we are having a picnic at the beach under the native trees that happen to flower all over in red right on Christmas time. These celebratory trees that only grow along the coast are called Pohutukawa Trees.
Wishing you all A Mary Christmas (the link is a selection of festive but non-religious music by Mary J. Blige and Luther Vandross).
Let your heart be light,
