It's that time again...

...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.

Deb -- Glad you enjoyed it! I've always particularly enjoyed the reindeer singing backup....

my dad sent me one of those things per email yesterday. Yes, quite fun to watch!

Even without a TV, you can always rent a dvd and watch it on your computer. On second thought, your monitor may not be in good shape afterwards... ooops

I hope to see you sometime next month! Remember, I'm flying over on January 1 until the 15th!!

In spite of all your woes, I still hope you manage to find a little joy on Christmas. {hugs}

I have never seen It's A Wonderful Life all the way through. My favorite is "White Christmas"
