Happy Holidays!

Hoping you and yours enjoy the holidays! And for those who celebrate Christmas: Merry Christmas! πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ½πŸŽπŸ™‚

Here’s one of my favorite Xmas songs. ❀️🎀🎡


Christmas Music Countdown, Part VII

This song was first released in 1994. Well, 23 years later, it finally made it to Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10.

This video rarely receives air play, but I believe this version is paying homage to the 1960’s. I’m certain this song will continue playing around Christmas time for two or more decades. πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ€πŸŽ΅πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ½




Christmas Music Countdown, Part V

I became familiar with this song as a child, when I first watched a rerun of the Christmas episode of The MonkeesΒ TV comedy series. The Christmas carol is a Spanish villancico (according to the Oxford Dictionary: a form of Spanish and Portuguese song with short stanzas and a refrain, originally a folk song, later used in sacred music) and I enjoy listening to it every Christmas. πŸŽ΅πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ½πŸ˜€
