Christmas in September and a Beautiful Song

I will confess to something that I'm sure will earn me some well-earned glares. This last month I started listening to Christmas music. I know, I'm a terrible person! You may glare at me now! I am usually a very firm believer in not even listening to a single note of Christmas music until at least November. But I was desperate! School was slowly killing me and all I could think about was how much I needed Christmas to hurry up and get here so that the semester would be over. Christmas was my light at the end of the tunnel, so I caved and started listening to Christmas music in SEPTEMBER! And oh, it is so glorious! I love Christmas. Who doesn't?

Nightmare before Christmas. If you haven't seen it yet, you must! Right now is the perfect time of year. And Corpse Bride as well.

But when I am not listening to Christmas music (which, I only listen to at the most stressful of homework days) there is a beautiful song, sung by a girl with a beautiful voice that my friend Becca introduced me to. It is called Pitter-Pat by Erin McCarley. I love this song and push "replay" far too many times. It is calming and peaceful. The best way to listen to it is with your earphones in and with the volume up so that you can hear all of the deep, lovely notes.

And here is a drawing of this beautiful girl who poses for one of my classes. The drawing isn't done but that's fine.
