Favorite Holiday Music during Blood Cancer Blues

I would have to say Mariah Careys "All I Want for Christmas". I'm at stable remission and let's keep it that way for 2021. Merry Christmas!

  1. Music helps with almost everything. I don't have blood cancer, but if I had to pick a song from my time going through cancer treatments with my daughter Crystal, I think I would pick Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, by Burl Ives, because Crystal was done with treatments right after Thanksgiving and we were all ready to celebrate Christmas and the coming New Year. I think this song would have summed up my feelings at the time.

    1. Yes, that's another great Christmas treasure. All holiday music usually helps move people in the mood, and we need it this year.

  2. Trying to get in the spirit and get the motivation to put up a tree like I do every year. I live alone but turning the lights out and lighting the tree are always uplifting. I like "Carol of the Bells," and music from The Nutcracker usually does the trick.

    1. Well, there's only one. See if you can guess:

      "Can I refill your eggnog for you? Get you something to eat? Drive you out to the middle of nowhere and leave you for dead?"

      Yup, Cousin Eddie and Clark W. Griswold himself. Happy Holidays to all!

      1. I was concerned there for a minute (LOL). I like that movie but would never have remembered that quote. Happy Holidays my friend!

      2. @yolandabrunson-sarrabo Now you HAVE to watch it again. Everyone should! HappyHol to you as well, you ever-upbeat friend of mine!

        I hope everyone has a safe, small, and pain-free holiday!

    2. So funny, as it came on last night (LOL). The same sentiments for a pain-free holiday. Cheers and Best!
