It's Time for a Carol a Day

In keeping with my one year old tradition, I'll be posting a Carol a Day during the month of December (with all my apologies to all those who can't abide the season). Unfortunately, I am unable to post the inimitable Tom Jones dancing to Winter Wonderland this year due to some sort of copyright infringement. Dang -- it was really sensational. But Glen Campbell might fit the bill to inaugurate this august blog tradition.

My memories of Glen Campbell include dancing to him with my mother when I came home from kindergarten. She would put on Galveston and we'd dance while eating graham crackers with cream cheese and jelly. Here he is singing Pretty Paper.


  1. Really? A carol a day? You're always full of treasures. I got one wee little tear in my eye while listening to this, and I'm not even sure why. It made me want to waltz beside a Christmas tree with my husband.

  2. Oh, I'm so looking forward to this, what a great idea!
    And I love some of these old ones. Yeah you!

  3. I LOVE this!!!! Christmas carols are my absolute favorite songs ever. After all, "it's the most wonderful time of the year."

  4. What a wonderful memory!!! Thanks for sharing. Look forward to more. My family always sung carols at Christmas by the piano growing up and it's a tradition I love.

  5. Damn youtube! I love Tom Jones, though. Good clip, this one is.

    And you're right. Mr Dosto, she missed him, but never mind. Let's hope he was on her mind.

    Greetings from London.

  6. Talking about juxtapositions, here I am at OHSU reading your blog and some inane yakyak is over the speakers system. I will put a note with your name on it suggesting instead a carol a day, or whatever instead. Great idea, I miss playing my guitar and singing carols in December with my friends. I will sing along with yours, but no here ;)

  7. WHAT a great idea! And so is eating graham crackers with your mother while dancing. : )

  8. I adore Christmas music!!

    ANd your compliment on my writing in my last post was out of this world awesome. I plan on quoting you in my novel reviews ;)
