Once in a Year, It Is Not Thought Amiss, To Pester Our Neighbors and Sing Out Like This

On the subject of figgy pudding, doesn’t this song have a certain Occupy Christmas ring to it?  “We won’t go until we get some, so bring it right here!”

How many different versions of Little Drummer Boy are there?  And why?

For all the thousands of Christmas recordings, White Christmas by Bing Crosby still hangs in there at the top.  (Although Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer is in hot pursuit).

Why was Pogo’s Deck Us All with Boston Charlie never recorded?

How old were you when you got the real meaning behind I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus?

How old were you when you got the real meaning behind Little Drummer Boy?

    Brother D., thanks for the gift of Pogo’s rewrite “Deck Us All With Boston Charlie.” I sing it at least once each decade when I escape the staid life of being an uptight denizen of SLC. The last occasion was when Ig Dunford and I were polishing off a bottle of wine on the edge of the Madison River. I’ve pulled the copy of Walt Kelly’s original cartoon and will apply it to my computer’s desktop
    as a fond remembrance of A.C.Smith and Co.’s rework containing rhyme too distasteful to sing in the neighborhood. Fear not, I will only sing this only at Christmas time in remembrance of our teen years and only if I can get my banjo restrung. Happy Holidays. R.D.(Tricky) Wallin, MD, BFD.

      Ah yes, those days of distasteful singing, although it was always suggested that I just mouth the words.
