A Five Minute Festive


Merry Christmas Dear Readers!


Mom and I have cooked up something short and sweet for you today. Well, actually we cooked this up last year. But who’s counting? Besides. Ya see, one of us is being a lazy slug today (Hi, Mom).  Come to think of it, I, Kimber, am a bit tuckered, too.

Mom says solitude can be hard to come by in our rush-rush, hurry up, instant everything society. Grabbing a few quiet moments to refresh and recharge can be a challenge any time. But it’s particularly tough during the holidays, huh?

This One’s For You

So if holiday merry-making has you ready to tear your hair out or your festive feathers are a bit ruffled, this is for you.

Slow down.  Grab a hot cuppa. Plop in a peppermint stick. Sit down. Put your feet up. Give Manheim Steamroller’s Stille Nacht (Silent Night) a listen.  Five quiet minutes. You’ll be glad you did.

Know someone who could use a yuletide boost? Don’t forget to share!

  1. I remember when my son and I went to see Trans-Siberian orchestra the first time. They said they were inspired by Manheim Steamroller. Have you ever watched TSO’s Christmas Eve show?

  2. Can’t believe I forgot to say Merry Christmas! So, Merry Christmas!

  3. I’m scrolling through book blogs for my 5-minute rest from doughnut making. It’s EXHAUSTING! Merry Christmas to you and yours!


  4. I love Manheim Steamroller but haven’t heard their songs for a while. Merry Christmas!
