Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didn´t cut the trunk....the tree...
I would also like to hear "It's spelled Christmas with a capital C" played more than what it is played.
And anything Christmasy by Dean Martin; Anne Murray; of course my favorite Bing; Judy Garland's "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and Celtic Women Christmas songs.
Whilst listening to RJD on MCR (newer version just cut into 2003 Mistletoe Mix), I was thinking about a song I haven't heard that's hard to come by.
I have the soundtrack on vinyl, but no fancy switcheroo gadgets to transfer a song that's been on my mind ... the song is Christmas Chimes Are Calling from the Rankin and Bass animated '74 film 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
That's the song that they play from the town clock to attract Santa to their village after the son (Albert) of Father Mouse writes a nasty disbeliever letter to the editor causing Santa to avoid Junctionville.
The song gets stuck in my head and it's rather cheery. If you happen across it, I'd love to hear it on MCR.
