Besides Christmas carols in church, “Christmas in Dixie” by Alabama is my favorite Christmas song.  I haven’t heard it yet this year, though.  I keep hoping one of the radio stations will play it.  I have a copy of the CD, but it’s packed away somewhere in one of my storage rooms. Next Christmas we’ll be in our new house, and I’ll have all my stuff out of the storage rooms and I can enjoy all my things again.

This afternoon my daughter called and told me about something that had happened earlier on a shopping trip with Sweet  Stuff (age 5).  They had “Christmas in Dixie” playing in the car as they drove home.  Sweet stuff listened for awhile and then starting singing along.  However, she made a slight change in the words.  Instead of “Christmas IN Dixie” she sang “Christmas WINN Dixie.” 

CHRISTMAS IN DIXIE  (by Alabama)

By now in New York City, theres snow on the ground
And out in California, the sunshine’s falling down
And, maybe down in Memphis, Graceland’s all in lights
And in Atlanta, Georgia, there’s peace on earth tonight

Chorus:
Chirstmas in Dixie, its snowin’ in the pines
Merry Christmas from Dixie, to everyone tonight

It’s windy in Chicago. the kids are out of school
There’s magic in Motown. the city’s on the move
In Jackson, Mississippi, to Charlotte, Caroline
And all across the nation, it’s the peaceful Christmas time

Chorus

And from Fort Payne, Alabama
Merry Christmas…Merry Christmas tonight

    Thanks Carol…I have not heard Christmas in Dixie…and I live only a stone’s throw from Fort Payne. I started reading blogs early this morning. Have a great day.

     Carol:  Once I dig out all my CD’s from the storage room next year, I’ll bring that one down and let you listen to it.  It is really a beautiful song.
