An Unconventional Christmas Card

Happy Holidays to my readers! Thank you for following me through the ups and downs of 2021.

Each year we send our friends a “Leap Second” instead of a traditional Christmas card. I find that our family packs way too much living into our lives for just one family picture to capture. So, we have taken a 1 second video of ourselves each day over the last year. Together these videos capture Team Thompson doing what we do best… instigating happy chaos.

I picked a song that I feel best represents our year. It should be noted that not all of Team Thompson is in agreement about my song choice. “One of the family members” thinks we should have chosen “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba. Of course Clara wanted “Happy Dance” by Mercy Me. I decided on “Its Okay” by Nightbirde after realizing that although fitting, “Mad World” by Tears for Fears is a bit off-color for a Christmas card. I think I am supposed to say that I do not own the rights to any of these songs.


Whether a happy song or a dark song represents your 2021, please know that you are seen, appreciated, valuable, and worthy of love. May we all have a 2022 that embodies OneRepublics’s song ”I Lived”.
