I goofed. Two weeks ago, when we posted about Christmas songs, I was supposed to share my favorite "popular" song. One not related to the birth of Christ, but the jolliness of the season. So, while my other dear co-authors remain on the right track (8 track, surely not), I'll tell you my favorite popular song. Mine is a dark Christmas song: "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer."
Three of my grandchildren live on the farm near us in their own home, but we're about a quarter of a mile apart. At a very young age they heard this song and their parents started making up stories about additional things that happened to me walking to their house. I'm a good sport, and I've feigned tears and a loveless life when they start singing the song or their versions. But our outrageous sessions always end in laughter and hugs and kisses. If that's what results from singing that dark Christmas jingle, then bring on the reindeer!
