I hope you all have been enjoying your holiday preparations with your loved ones as much as we have, this week. It’s been fun, but something’s gotta give, so we haven’t been right on top of things as much as usual, but all in the name of fete-ing with our family as you guys have, so it’s all good!
And so I pull myself away from watching this long enough to blog a little sendoff before we take a few good days of pure holidaying, here’s a little “Sibling Revelry Christmas Special” (ice skating free!) of Jonas interview vignettes from Popstar and a bit of non-Jonas caroling favorites thrown in, to cover what we’ve missed and what we’re anticipating in the New Year – and some Jonas tidbits too, but of course! Use your imagination and come along, after jump!!
Nick: We’ve been listening to Christmas music for about 2 months now.
Kevin: It all started…
Joe: Being in Kevins car…
Nick: The minute I put another layer on, like other than a t-shirt, when it was cold enough to put like, a long sleeve shirt on, I was like alright! Yeah!
Kevin: I pulled out the turtleneck the other day! I’m like, it’s on! [laughs]
Joe: A scarf, it’s all over. [laughs]
Nick: “Are you turtlenecking?”
Kevin: Yeah, he goes, “Are you turtlenecking right now?” You know it! [laughs]
Joe: It was such a classic “Ron Burgundy” turtleneck.
Kevin: It was like the beige..
Joe: It was like faded beige!
Nick: Faded beige, I like that color.
Kevin: You mean white? [laughs]
Nick: Kind of. [laughs]
OK, Revelers,cue up the music, it’s time for a song…
Fast away the old year passes,
Fa la la la la la, la la la la.
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Here’s the new thing in the Jonasphere, further revealed this week, that I’m looking forward to the most:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
In the meantime, we know the Jonases are coming to rest for a nice family holiday in Texas this year, but that their work has had them running back and forth around a number of warm places…
Kevin: Absolutely, no it’s really funny. We were driving in and this is very new to us being able to be in a warm climate.
Joe: We were in California and like, it’s super hot out but, you know, we’re listening to Christmas music and it’s something we’ve always done every year, listen to Christmas music, and get in the spirit. But it’s much easier when its freezing cold and there’s snow on the ground!
So how about a Christmas carol tailor-made for the warmer climes they’ve been finding themselves in this December?
But we can’t forget elsewhere back home…where we’re hearing…
And, Revelers, pat yourselves on the back for helping Sibling Revelry to send over $250 towards the cause.
Hopefully we all feel we’ve been able to do what we can to contribute this year, and now we can think about the little rewards for ourselves and our families…
Kevin: Stockings are fun for us, it’s all our necessities, like our razors, things that you know you need.
Kevin: Giving gifts is just so exciting.
Nick: The best thing was when I could pay for things with my own money, when I turned like 13 and I could finally have something that I could pay for as opposed to someone else paying for it and that was such a great feeling and then I fell in love with giving gifts as opposed to, you kinda become that age and oh, it’s so much more fun to give them.
Joe: It’s so nice seeing their face when it’s like, “wow, I would totally use this” or “I really like this.”
Kevin: You purchased it like a month ago already, and you’re like, I want to give! You keep going to your closet and ohh, that persons gonna love this, you know, you just get excited! Half our gifts are already in Texas waiting, so.
Nick: I’m not done shopping. I have a couple more people to get…
Kevin: I have not shopped for you boys, I’m gonna be honest with you.
Nick: Me either!
Nick: I say we just don’t give gifts to each other, that’d be good.
Joe: Well I already got your gift.
Nick: Alright, that was me trying to get out of it. [laughs]
Kevin: The gifts that matter are the things you paid attention to someone saying like 8 months ago. That they still don’t have or things like that.
Well, we know what the boys wanted for Christmas years ago…
A fan gave them THEIR wish, so who can blame these girls for trying?
Now, don’t forget to bring the Guys into your own holiday festivities…
You won’t want to miss the Boys in the Disney Christmas Parade which is airing on ABC-TV starting at 10am! (Or rockin’ New Year’s Eve with Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest, live from Times Square on the big night…don’t forget!) Watching that will mean that we’ll all…
But for now, let’s just take the Boys’ well wishes, both new…
And have ourselves a Merry Little Christmas, and Hanukkah, and all the joy your traditions bring you.
Have wonderful continued holidays and we’ll see you in the comments!!
OK. One more flashback!
After that, yes…yes it is!!
And hey – what are some of your favorite non-Jonas holiday songs at this time of the year?
