An Advent Christmas Blog, Calendar, Thing

So with with the holiday season upon us, I think a nice way to celebrate the spirit of the season is to share. For me, music is a big inspiration and an absolute necessity as I write. It’s true, we’re all being inundated everywhere we go with Christmas tunes, but I want to share some you might not hear at the mall. So stop in everyday for a new song. Maybe you’ll find something you like and add it to your holiday playlist, or maybe you’ll smile at a memory one of the songs brings up. Either way, I hope you enjoy them.

Today’s selection, “Mr. Heatmiser”, is from The Year Without a Santa Claus, an old Rankin Bass stop motion TV special from my childhood. This version is done, quite well I think, by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

And for the traditionalists, here’s the original.
