Christmas mood - ON!

I do love the time around Christmas. As a child most of my Christmas holidays were white. But lately it happens very rarely. 

Not really surprising with everything what goes around with the world climate, right?
But then again when I was a child it was so much easier to fall into the Christmas mood; a little (or in my case a lot) of snow, free days from school, expectation of Christmas presents - and that was basically it.

Now, being all grown up (don't laugh!) things are not so simple anymore. 

As I mentioned, usually no snow (although, don't get me wrong - at the present time I like snow in lowlands only during the time of Christmas and New Year, otherwise I'm happy if it's only up on the hills and mountains), only a few free days from - yes, you guessed it right - work, no expectation of Christmas presents as mostly I buy them for my family and friends...

So, to turn my Christmas/festive mood on - I attack YouTube and seek out the Christmas songs. 
In the past decade or so, I chose my favourites... and there are many of them!

As much as some songs adaptations are better than the originals and some are good versions and some are - so-so, there is one (by my opinion) that should never face an adaptation. 
Do you wonder which one?

Well, here it is:

The Pogues Featuring Kirsty MacColl - Fairytale Of New York (Official Video)


  1. I do love this song! So sad we lost Kirsty as she gave us some marvellous songs.
