Before I dive deep into this post, let me just mention a few disclaimers. First and foremost, this is not a personal attack on anyone. If anything, I hope to make this a teaching moment, and not a “reading” lesson. Secondly, I’m not professing to be Team Nene, Team Twirl, or any other team affiliated with the show. I have no metaphorical horse in this race. While I admittedly don’t like the consistent actions of a few, my personal feelings for the ladies, or the images they portray, has nothing to do with what I’m about to go into here. And lastly, my words can be applied beyond The Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise, and Bravo TV. So let’s get to it.
Christmas is by far my favorite holiday. I love everything about it. First and foremost, I enjoy celebrating the true meaning of Christmas. As Christian, you could say that I’m a super fan of celebrating Christ. But I also love going from store to store to buy gifts for loved ones. I love putting up the tree and all the decorations. I love the smell of my grandma’s stuffing and pies, my mom’s macaroni and cheese, my aunt’s cookies, and all the other food that will certainly have me working overtime in the gym. And of course there is the music.
I absolutely love listening to Christmas music. Each year shortly after Thanksgiving, my playlist changes to include some classic holiday hits from Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, and others. There are certain songs and artists I have to hear during the weeks between that Thanksgiving Thursday and December 25th. In fact, I have ten must-hear songs. See if your fav made my cut. FYI, trying to make a top ten list was hard for me. There are plenty of songs I love that didn’t make it on here.
