So what do you need to do to win?  Leave me a comment answering this question:

What's your favorite Christmas song?

My favorite Christmas song?  Hmmmmmm.  I'm going with Elvis's version of Here Comes Santa Claus.

Are you and I the only ones still awake this late Sunday night ?~!

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus... my mom sings well and i can remember this song while she baked tray after tray of cookies-dozens of cookies whose flavors still linger in my memory banks and whose aromas can slam me back fifty years in an instant.

Angei said...

My favorite Christmas song is one that I doubt many have ever heard.
It is "Santa's Coming in a WhirlyBird" by Gene Autry. My dad used to sing that to me when I was a very small child. He's been dead some 46 years and every Christmas I
think of him singing that to me. A couple years ago my DH went on a mission and found a CD for me with that song on it.

I enjoy reading your quilting and cat blogs.

Rhonda said...

Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see
A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
A song, a song
High above the tree
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepard boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know
In your palace wall mighty king
Do you know what I know
A child, a child
Shivers in the cold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace people everywhere
Listen to what I say
The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
