Getting Us In The Spirit Of The Season



For me, it is definitely NOT about the presents but about His presence this time of year.

This clip is a memory I have of one of my favorite singers when I was little - no not David Bowie. I loved Bing Crosby (Andy Williams too). Their voices evoke such sweet memories for me.

I remember watching Bing's show when he did this duet with David Bowie and I was moved by it and still am.

Boy, that brought back memories for me Dot!

I used to take care of an elderly lady during the evenings while I was in high school. Many times I would spend the night at her house as well. She LOVED Bing with all her heart and listened to him constantly. The instant I hear his voice, I immediately think of her.

Isn't it amazing what music can do - literally transports, at least it does me.

Glad you enjoyed it Angie! Glad it brought back fond memories for you.

This duet of "little Drummer Boy" is getting a lot of radio air play here this year.
Very nice to hear again this season.
Dot, I also remember seeing this on TV when I was a kid. I do not think I let on how much I liked the Christmas specials but my Mom LOVED them and we saw everyone that aired I think!
