"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." --Buddy the Elf

Well, it's just not CHRISTMAS around my house unless my Mom has on some Christmas music and is trying to sing along with all the harmony parts. It's not that she can't SING or anything. It's just that, as we all know, unless you are some kind of musical savant like in Shine or something, you can't possibly know all the harmony parts without even practicing. Ever the trailblazer, though, Mom doesn't let this stop her, and sings right along anyway. It certainly makes for a lot of Christmas cheer while she searches for the notes. ...She's doing it right now--AS I type this. The song is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, she's been disharmonic for about 2 verses now, and yet, she's still soldiering on. It's the gift that keeps on giving!

(P.S. How creepy is that album name in our visual aid? Maidens in Melody? Really? Really? How about The Vibrato Virgins? Blooms in B Flat? Hymens in Harmony? Seriously, people...)

I'd chime in, but I'm not even witty enough to come up with something that merrits a comment of this post. Good work! Made me LOL!
