‘Tis the season when I start thinking about holiday music and inevitably my Pentatonix Christmas CDs come into play. Who am I kidding? My Pentatonix CDs play all year long (Christmas songs included) because they continue to awe me (with Avi, without Avi, it’s all good).

This year, I thought I’d spread a little extra cheer for two different renditions of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”, one by Pentatonix and one by Lindsey Stirling.

Lindsey, who?

Well, I’m hoping you’ve heard of Lindsey Stirling but if you haven’t, now you have.

Allow me to formally introduce you to Lindsey Stirling’s wondrous violin playing talents. I first saw Lindsey in the Pentatonix ‘Radioactive’ music video. There was a certain groove and intensity as she danced and played the violin which gave her a very distinct and captivating presence onscreen. It was only recently that I learned Lindsey Stirling had actually started off as a contestant on the TV show, America’s Got Talent.

I had no idea!

Fast forward to present day and I’m happy to showcase two of my favourite versions of “Dance with the Sugar Plum Fairy”. Lindsey Stirling shows off her artistic violin dance style and well, you can see what Pentatonix does best (with Avi – still miss him but new guy Matt Sallee is great too!).

Do you have a favourite? I can’t decide but I sure am glad that Christmas is around the corner (and so is Winter Solstice, can’t wait for more day time! I seriously do not like it when it gets dark so early. Sigh.)

For the record, I’m not a huge Batman fan. I like Batman and many of the other superheroes but I’m not a huge Batman collector and my home is certainly not covered in Batman memorabilia. However, when things are cool, they’re cool and deserve a little shout out.

Case in point: a Batman projection light!

No way!

Yes, way!

A Batman projection light! Can you imagine how much fun a Batman fan would have with that?! It even comes with the little keychain clasp so you can carry it with you wherever you go for those times when you just need to get that signal out.

I found this little Batman projection light at my local bookstore and decided to pick one up for a pal of mine who fits right into that ‘big fan’ category. When he goes to the coffee shop, he’ll even identify himself as Bruce (I did not make that up). You should have seen his face when he got that little Batman projection light.

I tell you, we should all be so happy with the simpler things in life.

Things to do: keep your eyes open for fun finds, not just for yourself but for others as well and in case you were wondering, those fun finds don’t have to cost a dime either. All it takes it a little bit of thought and a whole lot of heart.
