Christmas Confession

I need to make a confession to Mike's side of the family. One that may come as a bit of a shock to my mother-in-law. So I'm going to apologize in advance.

MiMi, I apologize.

For years, Mike's mom has pulled out some old Christmas song sheets and has asked that we sing some carols together after our Christmas dinner with that side of the family. And we've teased her a little bit and sung a couple of carols and attempted some of the more obscure ones on the song sheet.  And then we give her a hard time again.

So that's the practice on the in-law's side.

But there has been a strange phenomenon that has occurred the last couple of Christmases on my side of the family.

Spontaneous outbreaks of singing.

Now, MiMi, you do need to know that some of the singing is covers of Kenny Rogers songs. But, I have to tell you, there is some caroling.

Contagious Caroling. That's what I'm thinking.

So that's my confession. My side of the family is now sitting around at Christmas, singing, caroling and guitar picking. We don't have those song sheets, MiMi.

But we may ask to borrow them...
