You see, I grew up thinking it was supposed to be jolly. And, oh my, was that shot down this year -- by nothing other than, of course, a viral video.
As someone who has a background in music and voice, Christmas is one of my favorites. The family and friends, the incessant quoting of Elf, and of course, the carols are just a few things to make this time of year one of the best!
And with these carols, come many arrangements and variations from artists around the world, belting their hearts out in holiday joy!
If you have Internet access, I’m sure you’ve seen it.
If there is something I’ve learned from social media, it’s that people love to bitch.
I will see people update a Facebook status to an unnecessary rant related to gas prices. I’ll witness photos on Instagram of people hunting with their dads and dogs. I’ve seen tweets about an individual, angrily, spending too much time in the doctor’s office waiting room.
And it has gone beyond my comprehension, how people seemingly take everyday problems, and blame them on the government.
“To die would be a grand adventure.”
This line was, ironically, quoted by, none other than, the late Robin Williams.
It’s always an odd feeling when a celebrity dies. Most often, it’s a person you don’t actually know, you've probably never met, and someone you've only seen on television. But, there is this lingering feeling, like you've known this person, as watching them live on the big screen can feel as intimate as a friendly conversation.
