Self-care open thread: When David met Bing
Full disclosure: This is my favorite time of year. I love the festive season. I love buying gifts. I love getting together with friends and family. I love Christmas music and lights and eggnog. I love all of it.
I know in these dark times it's easy to not enjoy the simple pleasures. But it's in enjoying these simple joys that we tell those who wish to oppress us that they won't win.
I'm of the MTV Generation. And if you're old enough, you'll remember that every Christmas season MTV would become Christmas central. There were Christmas specials, the VJs made a Christmas video. It was wonderful. (How sad what MTV has become.)
I heard this song for the first time on MTV. And ever since, it's remained one of my favorite Christmas songs. It is just a beautiful plea for peace. Almost two years on from David Bowie's sudden death, I'm opening TPV's festive season with it.
As always, take care of yourselves.
