There is something about the mention of bells and mistletoe, and of sleigh rides in white snow, that makes me so nostalgic. Especially when it is being sung in dulcet tones.
You must admit, there is a magical quality that surrounds Christmas, and it is this quality that makes me love it so.
I like to honour that feeling all year round, by singing Christmas songs while I peel the potatoes for dinner... happily humming along to the trilling of Bing Crosby or the lulls and melodies of Judy Garland.
