The Little Books - WALTZ live house show
I’m in this little group called The Little Books. We played our second show last week at my friends house.
Every year around the beginning of December I go dust off the box in my garage that has the word “christmas” written on it and bring it inside. In it is a collection of ornaments and christmas decor that my family has been accumulating since before I was born. Going through this box is like some weird time machine, memories pour in like a flood and I feel the glow of nostalgia bubbling in my chest. I remember all types of shit, funny, sad, weird, boring, their all there, dressed in christmas sweaters and sitting next to a fireplace with candy canes in their mouthes.
My family and I go to the same tree lot every year and pick out a christmas tree. We usually pick the slightly deformed one or the one with a weird shape. We strap the tree to the roof of the car and head home. When we get home we wrestle the tree inside and fit it into the stand. Once its standing on its own we begin the annual tradition of decorating the tree with ornaments from the nostalgic treasure box, but before we start I turn on the stereo and put in the soundtrack to Charlie Browns Christmas by Vince Guaraldi. This record gets played every day until the day after christmas then it goes back in the case and on the shelf until next year.
This is one of my traditions, its cliche and most of it was subconsciously lifted from Clark Griswold, but I still love it. So I covered a song from the Charlie Brown soundtrack this year to share with you folks. Hope you enjoy it! Cheers
