Oui Oui Wednesday

It’s that Christmas time of year, and in the midst of baking sweet and spicy concoctions, decking the halls, and going about my Auntie B’s Wax-ness I like to listen to things via that awesome thing called the internet, mostly YouTube and Pandora.  I just plug myself in and go to town.

The other day I had a song in my head from a Christmas special from my past.  It goes something like this…

We’re going home for the holidays
By train, by bus, by car
We’re going home for the holidays
We’re traveling oh so far…

The song is part of the soundtrack to Madeline’s Christmas.  I searched YouTube and found it without difficulty and couldn’t have been more thrilled.  I listened to it while pouring candles, then watched it on video for fun.  The songs of the video are now embedded in my head, and I couldn’t be more delighted.

Madeline is a seven-year-old girl living in a Catholic boarding school in France.  She has many adventures via books, film and television, but the Christmas special is one that captures my heart.

The sweet voices of little French girls, the colorful illustrations…it’s a simple story of Christmas cheer that fills my heart with joy.

Madam Marie sings a sweet song we should all remember…

Never give up on wishes
When you are sad or blue
Wish a wish right from your heart
And it just might come true

Never give up on wishes
Wish for the moon or sky
A wish is a dream that’s wide awake
Come now! Give it a try

Give this video of Madeline a try.  I’m so happy I found it, and it fills me with the Christmas spirit.

We’re staying in for the holidays
And those we love are near
We’re staying in for the holidays
We wished and now they’re here

We’re staying in for the holidays
We’re happy as can be
‘Cause there’s no other time like the holidays
To be with family
