Merry Christmas from Sunny Arizona

Pamela Tracy here, and yes we do get cold in Sunny Arizona, but it's a calm kind of cold. hehehe. Anyhoo, this past Friday I went to a Christmas party and we sang all the old songs. It was great fun. There was one song that was meant just for us. It was called Winter Wonderland - Arizona style. I'm thinking that you non-zonies have been deprived of this tune and I need to make amends. So, here it goes.

Feel free to sing while you read.

Palm trees wave, are you listening'?
In the pool, water's glistenin',
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight
Livin' in a Phoenix Wonderland.

Gone away is the blizzard,
Here to stay is the lizard,
A warm sunny day; we like it that way,
Livin' in a Phoenix wonderland.

In the desert we will have a picnic,
Cactus, sand, rattlesnakes, and sun.
Christmas dinner is an old tradition,
It's pinto beans and tacos by the ton.

Later on we'll perspire,
Temperatures will rise even higher,
A warm sunny day, we like it that way,
Livin' in a Phoenix Wonderland.


Keep humming those Christmas tunes and Merry Christmas!

Personally, I think everyone should make up their own version and have it fit their state. I could do one for Nebraska which is my home state. I'm a zonie transplant.

Lol..."zonie transplant"....!!

That's a very cool idea!!

Okay, I'll tell you...I had a cavity filled at the dentist today. It was during commenting on YOUR post that I've just realized I'm almost all un-numbed! LOL! Seriously though, it's been 3 1/2 hours and still somewhat numb!
