Merry Christmas all my Blogger Buddies!!

Like most of you, I won't be paying too much attention to the Internettubes over the next few days. But I wanted to leave you with something special, something that is from my childhood that speaks to me about the true meaning of Christmas.

Color me all nostalgic, but there is something magical about Christmas. Peace on Earth, presents exchanged, family together, it all just rocks.

There are many Christmas carols out there that try and capture what all this means, and some are good, while others are not so great. But to really feel the spirit of Christmas, you have to go back to the days of childhood innocence, and bugging mom and dad for yet another quarter to put into the jukebox at the local cafe and playing this song 3 more times in a row... For the 5th consecutive time...

Yes, true Christmas has only been successfully captured in song by




Wait for it...



The Royal Guardsmen!!

Yeah, I said it. The former "super group", the Royal Guardsmen!!!

Drink it all in people, perhaps it will sound better after that 5th eggnog/Bourbon tomorrow morning.

  1. You sure that it was a whole quarter for the jukebox back then? Seems a bit pricey for ancient times.

    It was worth it - I'm sure...

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas Skydad!!
