Can you believe it’s already the last Friday before Christmas? Like we knew December would be a whirlwind, but we weren’t expecting it to go this quickly. All the cookies are baked and decorated (or purchased, no judgement), the gifts are wrapped, and the credit cards are getting a better workout than we are. But it’s all in the spirit of the season, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
But December isn’t just for Christmas, it’s also for weddings. What a better time of year to get married than in a time of year already filled with family and love, and joy? People don’t often consider getting married around the holidays and immediately think about summer months for their wedding, but if you love the holidays then it might be the perfect time for you to get married. And December weddings mean a little added twist to your first dance song. If your hall has a Christmas tree, and maybe using some Christmas inspired decor, maybe you would also want a Christmas song for your first dance. And don’t worry, we don’t mean Joy to the World, or Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, but there are still Christmas songs out there for you.
And here is where we come in. We have a song for you that has the feelings of the christmas spirit, with the elements of a first dance song, all wrapped up with a nice big bow. And here is that gift now.
I know I got this thing on me, I don’t need more expensive non-essential things, cause when I kiss your lips it feels like it is everything I need, so tell me all you want for Christmas is me (0:34)
When you get to a certain age, Christmas becomes less about the gifts and more about the time you get to spend with the people you care the most about. Maybe you only get gifts for a few of your closest friends, or you choose to do a secret santa, because you enjoy the time you spend together with these people more than you would enjoy a gift card or something like that. The love you have is the most important thing. And this is no different for the love of your life. Sure you still buy each other gifts but it’s never about the actual gift, it’s about the thought they put behind it or the time they put into it. They are everything you need, and all you could really ask for for Christmas, is them!
So I’m going to love you like it’s always Christmas Eve, I’m gonna sacrifice the selfish part of me. Cause when we’re all alone and I hold you close, everything I’ll need. Say all you want for Christmas is me (0:57)
When you were a kid, Christmas was probably one of your favourite days of the year. And that may have changed as you got older (or not, that’s what we’re feelin over here), but it became your favourite for different reasons. It wasn’t for the number of gifts under the tree, or what you were going to ask for in your letter to Santa, it became more about spending time with the people you cherish most in the world. And when you started dating this person you are now going to marry, that probably became even more relevant. They give you that Christmas morning feel every day of the year. And what better gift could you ask for than that?
This time of year we always get distracted trying to fill up space under the tree, so lets take and I know what we really need, say all you want for Christmas is me (1:24)
It is easy to get swept up in the commercialization of Christmas. We see decorations show up in stores in November, and Christmas music starts to play, so then we start to think about what gifts we are going to buy and then about wrapping them. It is easy to lose yourself in the gifts. When it comes down to it, if you are happy and healthy, there really isn’t anything else that you need. So rather than trying to fill up the space on the tree skirt under the tree, try to fill your hearts with joy and love and compassion for others, and then everyone could feel a little more love on Christmas.
Stay warm and in love my dearies, and Merry Christmas!
