What is your favorite  Christmas song?

(For years, I favored the Christmas Song song by Nat King Cole. "Christmas, Baby Please come Home", by Darlene  Love, is the now  favorite. She sang it for years on David Letterman.)

Here  it is, over the years.

Merry Christmas to each of you and your families!!!!

Walking In a Winter Wonderland, any version is fine but I especially like Dean Martin's kinda boozy, easy lilting drawl.

How about movies? My longtime fav is A Child's Christmas in Wales with Denholm Elliot. I loved it when they ran it every year on PBS and have it on DVD. I watch of every year. Both Karen and I loved Wales when we visited and we can picture it in our mind's eye when we see the movie settings.

It is available on Amazon and I highly recommend it.

I am writing this with a hefty slice of fruit cake and a hot mug of ginger spice tea, Christmas tree lights aglow and some decorations lit. No other lights on, it is a Christmas built for a card.

I do love Hippopotamus as well. I used to sing that to Karen, much to her chagrin. She was not a fan of my vocal talents.

Our 3 year old granddaughter loves the hippopotamus song. We play a version of it for her from YouTube.

That’s cute! I love to sing and sang in Acapella choir at 

MPHS. My husband can’t carry a tune and sometimes 

our granddaughter asks Grandpa to stop. 😄😄😄 We 

are introducing her to all the oldies readily found on 

YouTube. She likes the unicorn song too- not associated 

with holidays.

Well, I was reading this and thought, I wonder what out 3 year old would do, she is in one of those moods you know. Well I was finding it and getting it all set and it started playing and she came straight over and sat on my lap and watched the whole thing.

THANKS, we needed that. Merry Christmas one and all.

Do you hear what I hear?

The history of this Christmas carol is that it was written during the Cuban Missile crisis as a plea for peace.

YouTube Song

Hardrock, Coco and Joe - YouTube

Hardrock, Coco and Joe is a 1951 short stop motion animated cartoon based on a song written by Stuart Hamblen. It is about three of Santa Claus' helpers who ride on Santa's sleigh each Christmas. The short has become an annual "Christmas Classic" on Chicago's WGN-TV and Johnstown, PA WJAC-TV since its introduction in the mid-1950s. The film is entirely in black-and-white.

Its full title is Hardrock, Coco and Joe - The Three Little Dwarfs. It was originally created by a company called Centaur Productions utilizing the stop-motion talents of artist Wah Ming Chang. Its running time is about 2 minutes and 45 seconds. (The Santa figure's facial features resemble Wah Chang.) This cartoon is traditionally broadcast with their two other short Christmas cartoons, "Suzy Snowflake" and "Frosty the Snowman".

According to the narrative song, Hardrock drives Santa's sleigh, and Coco navigates with maps. Santa "has no need for Joe/ but takes him 'cause he loves him so". (However, in the Bozo the Clown special "A Bozo Christmas," Coco states that Joe, who was unable to go with them that year due to illness, was in charge of crisis management.) Part of the charm of this primitively-made cartoon is that Joe, the smallest of the three, and very boyish-looking, has a deep bass voice.

It's that time of year again. You can watch the classic Christmas cartoons on our website by clicking here ...

The Boz, Garfield, Ray show was on last week. I always DVR it and watch during the season. This year they added a new format and cut the little girl walking up to each bucket to just a few seconds. The Hardrock, Coco and Joe is another musical exercise Karen didn't think was befitting my vocal talents, which she felt were best suited to imitations of Marcel Marceau.

On another note, the funding brouhaha has not shut down NORAD's Santa Watch. As a firm believer in the jolly old elf, fairy kind, Mary Poppins and magical beings of every ilk, I think this best embodies the enchantment that enwreathes this great time of year.

Another candidate for fav song is Nat King Cole's God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
