Monday videos - Christmas

Back to our videos on Monday, let’s go with Christmas songs to match this time of year. I try to pick out old historical videos to enlighten you youngsters and show you what things were like back in the old days.

One of the most widely recorded is The Christmas Song, written by Mel Torme and first recorded by Nat King Cole in 1946.

An old cartoon classic is the Christmas Song as sung by Alvin and the Chipmunks. This used to be one of the ‘classic’ cartoon shows played during the holiday season, but I haven’t seen it on TV in a while.

Finally for the politically incorrect, there’s ‘Holy Sh*t it’s Christmas’ by Red Peters and his hamsters. Probably best not to play when the kids are around or you’ll have the little ones dancing around the house singing it.
