I thought that December 13th's Carol of the Bells was wonderful, but was blown away by today's Oh Tannenbaum wrapped around the Christmas tree! Brilliant!

hohoho hohoho


Me too and me too. I thought I had posted already how much I liked the Carol of the Bells bravo! one. I guess I forgot to do the final Submit after the final Preview.

* hohoho *! hohoho la la la hohoho *

I am also rather pleased with Carol of the Bells. I sort of wish I'd taken more time (ha! as if it weren't already late as it is!) to get the echos of the bells ringing at slightly different angles. But again, I'm glad it is a somewhat of a success.


Oh, no, not just somewhat. stomp stomp

Many thanks MrsBrown. I'm glad you like it. It's one of my favourite carols as well.

Another favourite piece of music for me is "Amahl and the Night Visitors" At some point I was going to do "Have you seen a child" but I just yesterday was contacted by the library that the piano score I put on hold had finally arrived at our branch. So I don't think I will be able to manage to include Amahl this year. I think there might be copyright issues as well - so I guess I'm off the hook. Besides, how could I possibly have illustrated that one!!?

This is not a song with which I'm terribly familiar, but this picture is quite lovely. Although, does a fire in a fire place qualify as an "open fire" ?
I also feel slightly sorry for Santa, don't people think of him before they light their fires on christmas eve Question Maybe Santa has a special gadget for putting out fires on his way down the chimney. What a shame it would be to squeeze through a dirty chimney only to discover that he's going to burn his feet. boo! boo! BUT, those boots are excellent, and not at all like the big black boots with big buckles one sees so often. Idea Are they fire proof? stomp stomp stomp

Both the music and the image are excellent, like the rest. hohoho hohoho

I agree with Goldilocks that the boots are excellent. Actually, the whole illustration is excellent bravo! - I especially like the fire. And the stocking. And the bricks. And the fur on the pants. Whoo hoo! whoo hoo!

"Chestnuts" is indeed one of my least favourite boo! Christmas hohoho songs; I carefully averted my eyes while reading the lyrics on the Dec 21 entry, to avoid infection.

hohoho

I agree. The illustration is excellent as always but the song...well, the song boo! is ... "icky" is a word that springs to mind. I tried to avert my eyes but alas, audio virus!! Luckily, I was able to reintroduce the audio virus of Do You See What I See? A star, a star, shining in the night, .... hohoho At least it wasn't that awful song F-l-z N-v-d-d sung by the man with the nasal voice. hohoho hohoho hohoho hohoho hohoho hohoho hohoho

This reminded me of something a friend sent me today in which he said "Seasons Greetings" and told the following story:

The national chess club held its annual convention shortly before Christmas at the same hotel each year. For three days they would meet to hear and discuss papers on such things as chess strategies, mathematical theories and computer programs. Each night long into the wee hours, they would congregate in the lobby and hallways, eagerly bragging of their recent victories. Finally, after a particularly boisterous convention, the manager asked the club's secretary to please book its convention elsewhere next year and thereafter.

Spoiler (highlight to read):
He just could not stand one more session of chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.

Aha! I finally found this other way (by accident).

I've had "said the night wind to the little lamb" hohoho running through my head all night. What a relief to have an excellent bravo! tune instead of something more rebarbative like
