...when I link to my favorite music-and-animation tribute to the season...
The performance is by the Drifters, with the great Clyde McPhatter singing lead, and the cartoon is by Joshua Held...
Every year, I watch this, over and over. It always makes me feel good.
I'm not really feelin' the emotion this year. I don't have a TV, so I can't watch "It's a Wonderful Life" (which would either make me want to look for a bridge over an icy river or push my fist through the TV screen I don't have) or any of those "classic" holiday movies (Bing Crosby was not a member of my damn family, and I have never lugged a tree home through the snow). But seeing this warms me, every time.
There are certain people I wish I could share the watching experience with in person, particularly...no, let's not go there. This is second-best, anyway.
I hope you enjoy it.
