Sleigh Ride (1993)

Saturday 9:

1) Have you ever ridden in a sleigh?

No, not on a fancy one like Santa's.
But we call a little sleigh for one person a sleigh too. And then it's a large "Yes".

2) This recording is from Harry Connick Jr's best-selling CD, When My Heart Finds Christmas. This year, did you add any new holiday songs to your personal collection?

No, not at all.
But we didn't feel a lot like christmas, because we had a very warm december. Broke all records. No frost, nothing wintery at all.

3) Harry was born and raised in New Orleans, a city that seldom sees snow. Have you had enough snow to shovel so far this winter?

Not this winter.
And I missed it a lot.
maybe we'll get some in 2016.

4) Speaking of weather, Harry hosted a mini-series on The Weather Channel called 100 Biggest Weather Moments. Do you frequently check The Weather Channel?

It's a national illness to do so each day. :)

5) Harry's mother was a very impressive woman -- a lawyer, judge and Louisiana Supreme Court justice. Tell us about someone in your family of whom you're very proud.

My dad. he worked in the R.A.F. during the war.
And he was very loved at his work later.
He was a good dad.

6) Happy New Year! Now that Christmas is over, are you done with holiday music and decorations? Or are you sad to see the holidays end?

I'm just getting started. Bought quite some nice christmas decorations for just a few pennies after christmas, and as the season lasts until january 6th, three kings day, or at february 12th, the traditional end of the season... I'm OK.

7) The New Year's Eve fireworks celebration in Sydney, Australia is famous for coordinating pyrotechnics and music. Have you ever welcomed the New Year in another country?

No. I planned to go to London this year....will be next year?

8) Do you have any New Year's Resolutions for 2016?

Blogging again, and perhaps moving to a place of my own, with or without the girls.

9) Looking back on 2015, what surprised you?

I don't feel surprised by life as much as I used to.
What surprised me the most is how awful people behave towards people who fled from war.
