Santa Klaus
Good ole Uncle Nick--Hic

Beyond the noise and confusion and elevator holiday music,  there are some that must be your favorites.  The ones that bring memories of joy, reverence, laughter and that crazy uncle getting heavily into the   eggnog–again!

Who didn’t learn this as a child?
Frosty The Snowman – Jimmy Durante Christmas

A little NOLA ?
Zat you, Santa Claus?

Ramones – Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)

Christmas with cousins form the old country (I didn’t sound this good, believe me)

Oh Tannenbaum

Christmas – Santa Lucia Sweden

Oh, so many to choose…. Happy Holidays!!

You know, I always liked Christmas but thought it could be more evil.

Leave it to the Germans.

Krampus is an Alpine Christmas demon which accompanies St. Nicholas to punish bad children.

Here is a song for him and my final video creation of the night.

He used to come to my grandparents house with St Nikolaus on the 6th of Dec, St Nikolaus day, and ask if I had been good. Scared me half to death. I either hid in the bathroom, under the table, or under my grandmother’s apron. Broken toys and dolls were taken away in Nik’s sack, and then returned repaired before Christmas Eve when we handed out the presents which were hidden under a special lace tablecloth.

The evil guy was dressed in black robes from head to toe, his face covered with a huge hood, his name was Hanes Muff, and he was a grumpy old thing.

Sort of. I just wrote a comment in OT about the evil of the repubs.

A 16th century villancico, Ríu Ríu Chíu, by Mirabilis.

I didn’t spend much time on making this video.

The Spanish pronunciation could be better, but it gives it some of its charm.

The following are not mine, but follow along a similar vein.

El Duende – Gaudete, Gaudete

Considering the original music for this came from the 15th century, possibly much earlier, this interpretation has always moved me more than popular versions.

Or, in the original Latin.

Step away from that, and the bong. 😉

Seriously though, would love to see that vid again after a few tokes.

As long as your stash is mellow. Otherwise, it could be really freaky!

They’re a bit “python-esque” at times, Cher. But great singers!

Sailing into Bethlehem is one of the biggest Christmas miracles, no? 😉

For those who like the more somber carols (Cher, Khirad, me, et al), this is a lovely one:
