Dolly Parton’s birthday wish this year is a heartfelt call for kindness.

Well, another year has rolled around and what a year it has been. Like everyone else, it is now my turn for a COVID covered birthday. So what do you do? What do you want? Should you even celebrate?

I am choosing the quiet path so I can stay close to the ones I love to count my blessings and think hard about what this new year will bring.

However, I do have a birthday wish that I want to share with you. My wish is that everyone does something a little different today. Let’s call it a call for kindness. If you want to donate to your favorite cause, then donate. If you want to give an old friend a call during these lonely times, give them a call. If you can safely volunteer, then raise your hand to do so. If you decide that today is the day you get a dog, then run down to the shelter and find your new buddy. The choices are limitless.

I always encourage people to dream big but I also take great care to follow that up with the message to work hard. We can’t just hope for a brighter day, we have to work for a brighter day. Love too often gets buried in a world of hurt and fear. We have to work to dig it out so we can share it with our family, our friends and our neighbors. So today, January 19th, let’s get to unearthing love. Love is more contagious than a virus so let your best self shine in a glorious light and others will be inspired by you.

This is my birthday wish and may your birthday wishes also come true.

Dolly’s Christmas Traditions And A Note To Jolene

Published December 22, 2020 / Last Updated December 22, 2020

Dolly shares some special Christmas stories and sends a holiday message to Jolene.

It’s Christmas and Dolly is sharing a few of her favorite childhood memories. She recalls the excitement in their home when it came time to get and decorate a tree. This tender memory comes to life within the lyrics of “Comin’ Home For Christmas.” The handmade ornaments and tinfoil star were some of the most treasured in those days, mainly because of the special care and love her mother put into the preparations. Dolly said,

“In those early days, we didn’t even have electricity so we didn’t have electric lights for it. Mama was always great with making things out of colored paper or different rags that she would tie. We could make bows out of colored rags…Mama always made everything special.”

Dolly shares this memory and more in her Christmas message. She also adds a last-minute holiday message for Jolene.

There’s a new exclusive line of holiday cards and a custom e-card spotlighting a song from Dolly’s #1 Album A Holly Dolly Christmas

Dolly Parton and American Greetings announce their latest collaboration, A Holly Dolly Christmas Collection, just in time for the holidays. Spurred by the success of Dolly’s initial Everyday Card collection and her SmashUp “Birthday Time” e-card, these holiday cards in collaboration with the global superstar will bring more joy, hope, love and laughter to families around the world. Dolly said,

“Knowing that I can be a small part of making someone’s day a little brighter is such a great feeling, and this holiday season, especially, it helps to know someone you love is thinking about you.”

Earlier this year American Greetings announced a multi-year partnership with Dolly that includes digital and physical products integrating the legendary singer-songwriter’s music in unique ways. “Birthday Time,” Parton’s SmashUp initial digital ecard offering, has been sent more than 500,000 times since its launch six months ago.

“Dolly’s message of joy, hope and humor has really resonated with our customers, as evidenced by the resounding success of her SmashUp and the initial launch of her Everyday Card line,” says Rob Matousek, Executive Director/GM – Direct to Consumer Business at American Greetings. Rob went on to say,

“As we approached the holidays, we wanted to bring an additional offering of digital products to market. We believe Dolly’s curated collection of holiday cards and a musical e-card featuring her rendition of ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’ are the perfect pairing for the season.”
