Posts Tagged ‘Ninth Day of Christmas’

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me……..nine ladies dancing!

I’m going with the traditional line from the song on this one, because it’s something I can relate to! I would have had a hard time connecting any relevance to eight maids a milking and seven swans a swimming, but nine ladies dancing I can write about!

Since it’s Christmas, the first thought that comes to mind is the Rockettes from The Christmas Show. I think there’s way more than nine, but to me, the idea of ladies dancing is closely tied to the formation of perfectly choreographed dancers executing near perfect sequences of high kicks and movements that make my head spin!

But dancing ladies also bring to mind some very fun events where women enjoy dancing together. In the past year or so, two of my favorite memories of dancing are at my daughter’s college graduation party, dancing with old friends and new, and my best friend’s daughter’s wedding, dancing like we were college roommates again! There are a few Madonna songs that capture the joy of dancing and expressing yourself, but just having a good ‘ole time with my girlfriends is a good enough reason for me!

So ladies, keep dancing, have fun and “express yourself” on the dance floor the next time you have the chance. Dance right through your day, maybe humming a tune that you like to dance to, and I hope it brings a smile to your face and others today!

Happy Friday! Cynthia
