This video has absolutely nothing to do with being childfree. Or infertility, miscarriages, lost dreams, Plan B. It just made me smile for two minutes and 49 seconds, and I thought I’d share.
Watch it here.
A bit of background: The song is widely known as the “Cups” song from the movie Pitch Perfect (and if you love all those shows about a cappella singing groups, you’ll love the movie). 1,500 students and staff from a school in Quebec got together to perform this to set a new world record.
As I get ready to say “See ya!” to 2013 and “Welcome!” to 2014, I think we can all use a shot of pure joy, so here’s my contribution to the cause. (Share yours in the Comments.)
Have a safe and happy new year, dear sisters!
It’s not too late to grab your copy of Life Without Baby Holiday Companion, offering inspiration and encouragement for getting through the holidays. The book is available here on our site and on Amazon—and now just $4.95.
That was great!! I think I might have my family try this this year.
I was wondering what traditions others might have to ring in the new year… In my family, one of the things we do is fill a bucket with water and throw it out the front door… The idea is to wash away the old and make way for good things from the New Year.
I love this.
Joy is a great cause. My contribution to the cause has to be a Flight of the Conchords song: Business time. It always makes me smile. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGOohBytKTU
To answer Iris, I don’t really have any New Year traditions. I hate the overblown hype of NY’s Eve I have to say. Makes me feel like a NY Grinch.
I agree about the hype, Mali… growing up I remember always feeling let down because New Year’s Eve was never as spectacular as it looked for the people on tv or films, etc…. Now I just prefer a quiet evening with family and/or some friends… and let it come as it will.
Mali, that was awesome!!! 🙂 I’ll have to think up something to add, and look forward to seeing others!
