Trying to Find my Happiness at Christmas

Christmas Jack

I want it, oh, I want it
Oh, I want it for my own
I’ve got to know
I’ve got to know
What is this place that I have found?
What is this?
Christmas Town, hmm…
I’m not a big fan of Christmas anymore. The music is horrid and Roger Darling insists on listening to it from the beginning of November till December 26th. It’s all this sparkly girl can do to keep from cutting herself every time I have to ride in his car with him. If you’ve read me for very long you know I’m passionate about a few things. Okay, I’m passionate about everything. But music is my biggest passion. However movies are another. And of course there’s the lovely Sally and Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Sally is my alter ego. In my heart beats the musings and music of a pretty dead girl. Don’t ask me why. Some things can’t be explained, nor should they be.
I love the movie, the music, and the love story. For someone so loud and shiny, I can be quite morose. This time of year especially. I was trying to think of a song to cheer me up. Then this silly picture of Jack came up in my FB newsfeed. I knew the song I had to post up. What’s This from TNBC. Of course! I watched the video this morning and sang along. Christmas time began to buzz in my skull and I was happy. I do know the reason for the season. But it seems so many others have forgotten. I’m not trying to be sacrilegious with my post. I’m only trying to find my happy place. Of course it would come in the form of Jack and Sally. Now it’s time for this Sparkly Girl to get ready to head to Sis’s place for dinner and a crazy White Elephant gift exchange.
Merry Christmas from my family to yours. Much love to you all. Eat and drink too much and then take a shit ton of Mylanta to settle your stomach. XOXOXOXOXOOXOXOXOXOXOX

  1. I like ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ too!

    I hope you can find your happy place, but if you can’t find it. I hope you can have happy moments. Merry Christmas, Renee!

  2. I’ve just watched ‘A nightmare before Christmas’ for the first time, in the arms of my boyfriend in my bed. I loved it. All of it. It was perfection, after a long and stupid and depressing Christmas day, it was this simple thing that cheered it all up.
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! X

    • Jack and Sally do make me so damn happy. I’m sorry you had a depressing day. I am glad to hear that Nightmare made you happy. Your bf sounds like a sweet one. My Christmas wasn’t the best. I’m tired, sick and restless. I need to write and I’ll feel better. Take care sweetheart.

  3. Jack and Sally are so cute🙂 and he is really sweet, my bf, I adore him. Aww, I’m sorry to hear that your Christmas wasn’t the best, I hope you’ll feel better soon. I know the feeling of being restless, but I hope it ‘ll settle soon . You too take care x

  4. Ah good post. Sally and Jack would make anyone happy… Am not a big fan of xmas and the forced jolliness (prepare to call me the grinch🙂 ). Am ok w meeting up w the family anytime and friends but on xmas I’m actually quite happy to be home alone or with the girlfriend just chilling out on the sofa and slob out🙂 Anyone trying to force me to be happy just because it Christmas prepare to be bodyslammed😀 hope u had a good weekend anyway..

    • My dear it wasn’t too bad. My kids came home and that right there makes everything better. I made dinner for the newlyweds and Roger Darling. Adam came home later and we goofed around. Then he and I got up Christmas morning, made omelets and sang Bruce Springsteen tunes in the kitchen. I have to say it wasn’t half bad. I’m with you on staying in and slobbing out. What could be better? Maybe a few glasses of wine to go with it? Ah, yes. Hope your day was splendid my dear man.😉
