Hi S.P.,

Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

MIXEY, Your holiday lights look great.
 
Jeff,  You know I love your tree each year and that great great room you guys put it in.  Your daughter is very pretty.
 
Geno, love your posts as usual esp. the snow ones. Smile
 
Hey toad, I trust all is well in the Motor City.

Here's my holiday musical gift to everybody ... an a-cappella version
of "Snowfall" that will knock your socks off if you've never heard this
one before... run and grab a good set of headphones or turn up your
monitors... the vocal harmonies in this number will slay you.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here's the YouTube URL if it didn't load above...
 
 
This, IMHO, is the best arrangement and performance ever conceived
of Claude Thornhill's most famous recording, "Snowfall," which was
released in 1941 as Columbia 36268. m-pact recorded this version
some years ago and it appears on their CD: "The Carol Commission -
A Christmas Collection", which is still available at their website:
 
This album is also available as a digital download at iTunes.

Hi Everybody.

For any of you who celebrate Epiphany, I hope you had a nice day on Friday. January 6th has always been an important holiday in our family.

In Italy, where my grandparents were from, the 6th was the day when people exchanged gifts... not on December 25th, although Christmas was still celebrated as the birthdate of Jesus.

January 6th is to commemorate the arrival of the Magi (3 wise men), who brought gifts to the baby Jesus. In some cultures it's also a date to commemorate baptisms, and it's also the name day for those with the name John or Joan in remembrance of John The Baptist.

In addition to a Christian ceremony... January 6th in Italy especially where my family is from, is also marked by a pagan ceremony which is similar to the idea of Santa Clause. It's called La Beffona. La Befana is an old woman who visits children on January 6th and brings them gifts.

The Romans way back when, didn't like the La Befana story, because they had little control over the merriment... so they started an alternative story to try and control the festivities and turn the day into a Christian focus. They said that La Befana was visited by the 3 wise men, who were looking for the baby Jesus. They invited her to join them, but she refused, because she was too busy cleaning her house. When she found out who the baby Jesus was, she became frantic and began a search of her own, visiting children everywhere in hopes of finding him. How's that for a spin!

We essentially have all of our lights and decorations down now. The people didn't come today to take down the lights around the roof line, however. No, Soul Sister... I don't put those up myself. lol Everything else I do, but climbing around the roof tiles isn't something I like to do, and these guys do such a nice job and they do it well and all in a few hours.

Anyway... even though the holidays are over now in my family, the holidays still are going on in many parts of the world. Happy continuing holidays.

Toad... We have a neighbor who's house looked just like the one in your video. LoooooL!

Jeff... fantastic vocal arrangements and performance in that youtube you posted. WOW! I enjoyed that!

Happy Christmas Eve 2012 Soulful Planet!

We're finally putting this thread in the events announcement for all areas.

It's been an admittedly trying year; but we appreciate all of you who have either stayed active in our village, are taking a break, or just enjoying reading.

We hope that 2013 will bring greater cheer, now that the Mayan Calendar meteors have disintegrated and we're into a new life phase.


Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!


From,
Mixey, Bruce & Char

Merry Christmas 2012
with
Happy 2013
on the way.



Well, here it is Chistmas Eve,
and guess what?
It is snowing out on the D'Street Deck!
It started late this afternoon,
and it is coming down now,
as if on cue
for Christmas Eve.

It's a soft, dusty, peaceful snow,
coming straight down,
covering everything,
with very little wind.

Mixey, S.P.A.T. & Everybody on SoulfulPlanet
Merry Christmas with MuchLove!

~Geno


Also, Here's one that Vincent Montana and I did together
a few years back...
very appropriate
for this kind of
Christmas Eve Snowfall,
~Enjoy, Gene

Also, I've been thinking about Toad tonight.

Toad was always so much fun here at SoulfulPlanet around the Holidays... Any Holiday!
Even when it wasn't a freakin' Holiday *lol*

Damn... really miss him. RIP Toad.

Anyway, here is one of Toad's Christmas Posts
that he put up last year here on SoulfulPlanet...

Awwwww Geno! That's so sweet! I've been thinking about Toad too. He'll be gone a year in January. I came across an envelope yesterday from Toad. In it he had shared some cool pictures. I'm going to post them in his memorial thread in January.

Thanks for mentioning 2013. I changed Merry Christmas 2013 to 2012 above. I don't know what I was thinking. Maybe just looking forward to getting past 2012 in a big way.

BEAUTIFUL feeling to read your words about the quiet snow and listening to the piece you did with Vince.

Thank you. xo Much Love to you. Have a wonderful Christmas Day tomorrow.

Nice youtube selection Geno. Thank you.

Weirdest Christmas ever this year. I probably should just leave it at that.

I'm looking forward to 2013. How about you?

Well


"The December 2012 Mayan Christmas Apocalypse, possibly from Hell",
...might be too kind of a description.








So... moving on now, how about those Phillies for 2013?



2012 is almost over...
Thank goodness,
Overall, it was just not
very much of a fun year,
that's for sure.

Hoping 2013 in this crazy world
has the chance to be
better.

OMG!!!!!!!!! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!!!!!!!!!

That about said it all!!   

Christmas was banned numerous times through the ages because it got out of hand and was just one big drunken brawl. It feels like we're going back in that direction. Neighbors compete more and more over who can have the most outrageous lights. Kids scream Christmas carols. Absolutely crazy holiday movies are on TV.

I love Christmas, and everyone can do what they want with their holiday, but for me, I'm going to celebrate mine in a more quietly personal way in 2013; and if that means doing it in a way that's disagreeable to whomever... whatever.

So...
Flat out at the end of 2013.  
Christmas is around the corner and our Soulful Planet is as occupied as an intergalactic death star. 
 
Take heed you sparkly unicorn posting Facebook aficionados... We will be welcoming in a fresh new organic crop soon to help nourish this place.

To our loving friends who have remained true to this little village, and to those who have faded or have left in a huff, we wish you all a very happy holiday season.

With love from under the covers,

Mixey & Your Soulful Planet Administration Team

I'm Still Here and Still Loving SoulfulPlanet, 
I am just needing a faster freekin' computer to keep up with 
the new web software upgrade 
(the upgrade put this old MacMini PowerPC Motorola Chip into the slow lane)
so I can get back to my usual posting craziness and jpg insanity. *lol*
My Mac computer upgrade has to wait for now, but
It'll happen eventually, I'm sure!
 
In the mean time, Mixey & Everybody...
Merry Christmas from Text Only Land 
where the snow just keeps falling out on the D'Street Deck!
(((as in. like 6 snowstorms in 11 days!))) and Christmas isn't even here yet!  *lol*

... and Geno... I know you're here, my friend; and I'm sorry the "update" has thrown off your posting.  It was supposed to make things better, but instead some tools are now missing in amidst of having more ability in other areas.  I'm going to get it right some day... promise.  
Thank you for being here.
Stay warm.
Love you,
Mixey

There is so much Music History, Life History and Flat Out Fun carved into these SoulfulPlanet Walls,
through thick and thin,  bad times and good times... it's always here... 
Every day, every season, every holiday... year after year. :)

Think about the awesomeness of that... wow.

Ring the bells, smile and spread some love, some good vibes, and much appreciation whereever we can, 
and Happy Holidays to Everybody!
