After this November’s election results, it might seem a bit greedy to expect anything else from Santa but he is a generous ol’ soul. With that in mind, the thought arose that it might grease the wheels with Santa if a parody song was offered as a gift to our wonderful PlanetPOV members and readers.

So, with all apologies to Nat King Cole, here is an update of The Christmas Song.


Wingnuts roasting on a Boehner fire

Tax cuts slipping in the polls.

Old time peril being sung by a choir

And Kochs dressed up like corporate ‘ho’s.

Everybody knows a turkey ran ‘gainst Pres’dent O

Helped to sink the Repub Right

Tiny minds with foil hats all aglow

Have found it hard to sleep with spite.

They know Obama’s on his way

He’s loaded lots of toil and good deeds on his plate

And every Murdoch rag’s gonna spy

To see if most folks really know how they lie.

And so we wish the best of holidays

To those around The Planet too

Although it’s been blogged many times

Many ways, Merry Christmas to you!

Kalima, KQuark, Bito and I send our sincere and heartfelt wishes for the happiest of holidays and a wonderful New Year to all of our Planeteers who make this site Christmas for us every day of the year!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays to all!

I’m sure there are PlanetPOV people who remember Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol.


I always thought this version, in its own way, was one of the most poignant. Thanks for the memory!


Before it gets too late, (it’s already Boxing Day here) wanted to add my thanks to all our members for making The Planet what it is today. AdLib, KQ and I had many dreams when we started this site, but they were nothing compared to the wonderful membership who have stayed with us and continue to contribute endless treasures for us to share on good days and bad days, through doubts and fears, and through thick and thin no matter what life throws our way. I add my thanks to both members and readers, hoping you will be with us to see, discuss and explore what the New Year brings. A special thank you to my fellow Admins, AdLib, KQ, and bito, for making it such a delight to keep our Planet spinning together every day. 😀

Happy Holidays to one and all. Peace, hope, joy and love from across the miles.

Lovely song with very catchy lyrics. 😆


LOL! Well done Ad. Somehow I don’t think ole Nat would mind so much, considering the times.

Merry Christmas and a big Ho Ho Ho to all Planeteers.


Okay, now I will have that song stuck in my head all day. But, I’ll take it because it will remind me of all of you! Thank you for all the work you do on the site so all of us can say what is on our minds, keep in touch, and let us all know we are not alone in a crazy world at times!


AdLib, Kalima, KQuark, and bito – and Khirad, Sally, and Sue with their wonderful features – you all have given us a wonderful place to come to think, reflect, speak, and, best of all, often laugh as I am doing at this rewrite of the classic song!

Happiest of holidays to you all wherever you are. Life on the Planet is better because of all of you and what you give to all of us. Thank you!


Thank You C’Lady and thanks for all your knowledge on and from the socially progressive front! The Planet is a great place to gather and share thoughts and most importantly the opinions of all our members! It is a true treasure.


You know I love you, CL, but if you forgot, I DO! Happy Holidays to you and Happy Days ahead!
