Post 1017 - The First Christmas Post

It's a little embarrassing to note that private radio stations in Halifax have begun to play Christmas music, even though it's still November. It's generally understood that radio stations don't get into the holiday mood until after December 1st. So, they're a little early this year.

I guess I'll be a little early, too.

I am enclosing a few Christmas songs for your enjoyment. They're parodies of popular songs, and they're pretty funny, in my opinion.

Frank Kelly's interpretation of the 12 Days of Christmas is an absolute scream. As he receives that day's present he becomes more and more upset, to great comic effect. I don't want to ruin it for you. Just check it out.

Bob Rivers has made a career of parodying songs. I have one of his Christmas albums, called Twisted Christmas. The parody of "The Christmas Song" is one I don't want to ruin for you by discussing it.

And Rivers' "The 12 Pains of Christmas" should resonate with... anybody who celebrates the season! Ironically enough, this version was performed on a Christian tv show. Reg, how much do you know about these folks?

I hope you enjoy the Christmas songs. I'll include some traditional tunes here, soon!
