The holidays have descended. My personal rollercoaster started last Thursday, when Mary, Melissa, and I attended the MSPCA tree lighting. It was fun…there were some dogs, a cat, free cupcakes, and free cat and dog treats! We looked for our pets’ ornaments in vain. But we have pledged to go back and continue the search.
Saturday, I joined an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for number of carolers in one spot. We were way off (the record is 7,514 and we had 3,200-something)…but it was still fun to sing Christmas carols for 15 minutes straight. Keith Lockhart, the conductor of the Boston Pops, conducted the crowd and the Tanglewood chorus. Some radio personalities emceed, and of course Santa, Mrs. Claus, and Rudolph were there to cheer us on. My favorite moment was when we were singing a slower Christmas carol, and I happened to look over at Rudolph, and he was blowing kisses to the crowd in slow motion. I found it HYSTERICAL for some reason. I’m laughing just thinking about it.
Sunday, Linda and I volunteered at the Rockettes’ Radio City Spectacular. We stood by Globe Santa donation kettles before and after the show, and that entitled us to watch the show for free. It was kind of a corny show, but still fun.
Now it’s time to work on holiday cards and holiday shopping…
