Saturday 9: Please Come Home for Christmas


Please Come Home for Christmas

Saturday 9: Please Come Home for Christmas (1992)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) In this video, Jon Bon Jovi recalls decorating the tree with Cindy Crawford. They took turns wearing a Santa hat. Will anyone in your household be donning a Santa hat this season?  That will be me.  We are having a wear  Santa Hat day at school the same day as Santa visits, so I will be wearing my Santa hat that day.  
2) He sings of the salutations he's received from friends and relatives. Have you received many holiday cards this year?  no, how sad is that?  It gets worse every year.  I did send out cards.
3) Will you wrap many presents? Or do you prefer to use gift bags?  I wrapped 17 gifts for my pre-k kids and I always wrap Josh's.  Everyone else's are in gift bags.
4) Jon Bon Jovi says he and Frank Sinatra are distant relatives. Do you believe that musicality is a genetic gift, or that it can be taught?  I definitely think it is genetic, but it can be learned too.

5) Jon is such a big Star Wars fan that he wrote a carol called "R2-D2: We Wish You a Merry Christmas." There a dozen Star Wars movies. How many have you seen?  a few...Karl has seen all of them.  They are ok, just not my thing.

6) Jon once guest-starred as Carrie's love interest in an episode of Sex and the City, the popular HBO sitcom set in New York. The new reboot, And Just Like That, also centers around NYC life. Where does your favorite TV show take place?  Yellowstone, it takes place in Montana.

7) Jon met his wife, Dorothea, when they were still in high school. Do you remember who you wanted to marry when you were in high school?  Probably David, my high school boyfriend.  It wasn't a teenage tv star or anything.

8) At Christmastime 1992, when this song was released, toys that tied into Disney's Little Mermaid were very popular. Have you purchased toys for anyone on your gift list this year?  no, I usually get the dogs toys for Christmas, but I am leaning more toward some treats.

9) Jon recorded "Please Come Home for Christmas" to benefit The Special Olympics. Here's your chance to plug a cause or organization that's near and dear to you.  Convoy of Hope.  They recently helped get supplies to the tornado victims.


  1. That's nice that you get each of your kids a gift! Have fun at the party!

  2. I bet those gift bags are going to be a hit at school.

  3. #4 I agree, you have to have the gift before you can train it.

  4. Thank you for the many smiles. Have a beautiful day friend.

  5. I've heard about Convoy of Hope--they came through Albuquerque last year, I believe.

  6. I was thinking of getting my homeroom students a little treat this year. High school students are sometimes so jaded, I don't know if they would appreciate it.

  7. I have not been able to get into Yellowstone. It's awfully violent. I like your organization. Those tornadoes were awful.

  8. Convoy of Hope sounds wonderful. The destruction from the tornadoes was horrific.

  9. I enjoyed your answers, Lori! These are always fun! Your Santa hat day at school sounds like so much fun!

  10. The Christmas card sending is getting to be a rarity. But you sent some out so it's not the usual excuse. The "Wear Santa Hat Day" sounds like a lot of fun for staff and students.
    Love your cute blog Christmas decor. Very sweet. Enjoy the Holidays, Lori!
