To be jolly

Now if you just so happen to watch the video, and you don’t catch yourself smiling, then I’ll come see you to massage that hardened heart of yours. It is, after all, the season to be jolly. So be it! Stop it with the political moaning, employment groaning, life-is-not-fair bellyaching, and the unsociable Facebooking for but a few minutes…and sing a Christmas song, for crying out loud, that might make others smile for all the right Godly reasons.

And today at the office, we did our own jolly work. Granted, a flash mob we were not, but why the suggestion to dance-a-jig while singing-a-tune was met with such considerable resistance from the group I might never know. But do know this: we still sort of held our own in song (and sometimes 4-part harmony). I’m still trying to figure out why the tenor part was higher than the altos…that’s just wasn’t right (nor was it good).

12 of us, gave 20 of them, 30 minutes of toe-tapper Christmas carols that stuck with their hummers the rest of the afternoon. Folks were gifted with our best version of the season’s spirit – so what if we hit a few sour notes along the way.

Oh yeah, need I mention the Ebenezers amongst us? Nah I don’t need to do that – bah hum bug to yuze guys one and all and bring your own goodies to snitch next time – we have us some holly decking, mistletoe hanging, snow dashing, holy nighting, jingle belling, and Merry Christmasing to do instead!
