With pictures like this from last year (given to me by a friend), I regret that my wife and I will miss Christmas in Edinburgh this year. We are thankful that we will be back in the States with family but Scotland and the UK are beginning to take on a Dickens-like Christmas aura. Edinburgh is something special to behold as it transforms.
Like Maggie at Maggie’s Notebook, I like Diana Krall, but…it is hard to beat the classics:
Nat “King” Cole:
“The Christmas Song”:
“O Tannenbaum” (in German):
“Let it Snow”

What a beautiful scene! Scotland’s loss is our gain. maybe we can meet for an eggnog at Tan Fannies.
Send me the invite to join that party (if the two of you don’t mind).
The junta should convene, I agree. We can exchange bottles of cologne.
I LOVE Nat’s voice. A couple of years ago, I got turned on to this a capella version of Silent Night by a group called Boys II Men. It’s beautiful! I would post it but I don’t know how….
Boys to Men had a great sound. I think you can embed a code from youtube, if you find the song over there.
G. my girlfriend’s youtube site is wtsupchknbutt. I actually voice some of the characters. Wonder if you could pick me out…….
You have a girlfriend? Sweet. I guess driving does lead to girl on girl action. Who knew?
The Mullahs, that’s who!
Oh, brother! Like you don’t have your boyfriends who you are meeting up with at Tan Fannies? Be glad you keep Kells out of the mix because chicks (especially strippers) dig me… well, ever since I got my license…
I miss the feel the holidays once had. NOTHING like it in general today – I guess you can only find the Christmas I remember in isolated places these days… 😦
I’ve never been in Scotland at Christmas, but have in Germany and Italy. Germany is spectacular that time of year, with their Kris Kringle Marts, and spiced wine. Thanks for linking!
