Best ever hub for Christmas
Alvin and the Chipmunks Xmas Song
Sing along to Alvin & the Chipmunks
Christmas, Christmas time is near
Time for toys and time for cheer
We've been good, but we can't last
Hurry Christmas, hurry fast
Want a plane that loops the loop
Me, I want a hula hoop
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don't be late.
Welcome to my little tribute page to Christmas. Most of my inspiration came from childhood, that I'm sure are familiar with many of you. I attempted to recreate the sight, sound, and feel of Christmas at my parents' house, if that's possible. At the very least, it's what I remember growing up in Southern California.
In browsing around, I'm using Youtube videos for sound and music that you can play as you visit the page. Alvin and the Chipmunks "Christmas Song" is immediately to your right. We also have somewhere in the page, "Frosty the Snowman", "Little Drummer Boy" duet by David Bowie and Bing Crosby, and "Santa Claus is coming to town."
So you might want to right-click the links so that it opens another tab or window while the video plays and you listen to some timeless Christmas classics.
Desserts from fellow hubbers
Santa Claus, Rudolph, Frosty, et al.
Growing up Catholic, Santa Claus was a big part of our Christmas. As a kid back then, late 70's to early 80's, we looked forward to the Christmas TV specials, where we got to see Rudolph, Frosty, and the Peanuts gang.
In no particular order, these are my favorite Christmas shows
- A Charilie Brown Christmas (1965)
- Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer (1964)
Remember Hermey, the elf who wanted to be a dentist?
- Frosty the Snowman (1969)
- Santa Claus is coming to town (1970)
- It's a Wonderful Life (1946)
- Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales (1979)
- Christmas Vacation (1989)
I wasn't a kid anymore by this time, but it's a funny holiday movie and I still enjoy it.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause Lyrics
I Saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus,
Underneath that mistletoe last night
She didn't see me creep, down stairs to have a peek!
She thought that i was tucked up in my bedroom fast asleep.
Then I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus,
Underneath his beard so snowy white!
Oh, what a laugh it would have been, If Daddy had only seen,
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night!
Winter Wonderland Lyrics with midi
written by Felix Bernard and Richard B Smith
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening♦♦In the lane, snow is glistening♦♦A beautiful sight,♦♦We're happy tonight,♦♦Walking in a winter wonderland.
Gone away is the bluebird,♦♦Here to stay is a new bird♦♦He sings a love song,♦♦As we go along,♦♦Walking in a winter wonderland.
In the meadow we can build a snowman,♦♦Then pretend that he is Parson Brown♦♦He'll say: Are you married?♦♦We'll say: No man,♦♦But you can do the job♦♦When you're in town.
Later on, we'll conspire,♦♦As we dream by the fire♦♦To face unafraid,♦♦The plans that we've made,♦♦Walking in a winter wonderland.
In the meadow we can build a snowman,♦♦And pretend that he's a circus clown♦♦We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman,♦♦Until the other kids knock him down.
When it snows, ain't it thrilling,♦♦Though your nose gets a chilling♦♦We'll frolic and play, ♦♦the Eskimo way,♦♦Walking in a winter wonderland.
Walking in a winter wonderland,♦♦Walking in a winter wonderland.
David Bowie and Bing Crosby

Come they told me ♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum ♦♦A new born King to see, ♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum ♦♦Our finest gifts we bring ♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum ♦♦To lay before the King ♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum ♦♦Rum pum pum pum ♦♦Rum pum pum pum ♦♦So to honor Him ♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum, ♦♦When we come.
Little Baby♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum♦♦I am a poor boy too,♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum♦♦I have no gift to bring♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum♦♦That's fit to give our King♦♦Pa rum pum pum pum♦♦Rum pum pum pum♦♦Rum pum pum pum♦♦Shall I play for you!♦♦Pa rum pum pum
Mary nodded♦♦ Pa rum pum pum pum♦♦ The ox and lamb kept time♦♦ Pa rum pum pum pum♦♦ I played my drum for Him♦♦ Pa rum pum pum♦♦ I played my best for Him♦♦ Pa rum pum pum pum♦♦ Rum pum pum pum♦♦ Rum pum pum pum♦♦ Then He smiled at me♦♦ Pa rum pum pum pum♦♦ Me and my drum.On my drum.
