Barn Weddings and Peony Season! A few of our Favorite Things.

Updated: Jan 23, 2020

Does anyone know how “My Favorite Things” became a Christmas song?

Don’t get us wrong, we are here for anything even tangentially related to the incomparable Julie Andrews, but this fairly recent development in Christmas playlists is puzzling. The rest of The Sound of Music is about love, music, Nazi occupation, and climbing every mountain, and the song in question never really mentions Christmas at all. It does mention, “snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes” and “silver-white winters that melt into springs,” but do those lyrics a Christmas song make?
