I have to confess that this is a fairly recent addition to my long list of Christmas traditions and Christmassy favourite songs. I hadn’t heard it until about three or four years ago, and since then I have made it my ‘official start to feeling Christmassy’ song, especially this version by the fabulous Mary Margaret. Of course, I have absolutely no idea who Mary Margaret is, it’s just a video I found on you tube, but you’ve got to agree, the girl has talent!!
Anyway, just had to share it with you (the whole world should see it!!). I’d love to hear what song brings the most Christmassy feeling to you.
p.s. this is closely followed in my list by ‘The Little Boy who Santa Claus Forgot’ but I didn’t want you getting all depressed 😉
That was flipping cute (and I usually find “cute” kids annoying)! She can carry a tune much better than I can. Thanks for sharing!
I think one song is probsbly enough though 😉
Man, this makes me remember all my kids’ talent shows and dance recitals and on and on…! Hammy kids, yup. I had a couple. They wear me out. 😉
Oh yes, the hippopotamus song. My dad always teased Kris about this song and one year he gave him a small hippo toy for Christmas.
It’s a hard call to say what song does it for me. I have so many favorites! The last few years I have grown attached to Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy by Bing Crosby and David Bowie.
Oh yes, thats a good ‘un. Though weve always though Bing looks very puzzled in the video, as though he has no idea who the young upstart is!! 😉
lol You’re probably right! 🙂
