Christmas Music: 3 Hour Medley

As my last Chirstmas music post, here is three hours of Christmas music to help you celebrate the day. Happy Birthday, Jesus, and Merry Christmas to us all!


Christmas Music: Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer

I’ve heard it every year. I’ve sung along with it every year. DS was even kind enough to point out that this year is the first year this song is about me too (thanks, son). So now I share with you the very catchy classic Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.

Do me a favor. If I get run over by a reindeer this year, put that sucker in the freezer and think fondly of me as you eat him throughout the rest of the year. Comments are open below. Merry Christmas!


Christmas Jazz: O Christmas Tree

Sometimes iHeart Radio just knows what my heart needs to listen to more than what my brain wants to listen to. Today was one of those days when I hit on their Christmas Jazz Radio station. It’s been forever since I’ve kicked back with some jazz and relaxed, and I still haven’t kicked back and relaxed, but the jazz is helping a lot as I try to finish getting things ready for the fat man in the red suit to make his yearly appearance. And very little in the world of jazz makes me happier than hearing a good sax player. Thankfully, I heard The Brian Fields Quartet playing O Christmas Tree. This one is a keeper, and I’ll be looking for more music from this group to play the rest of the year too.


Christmas Music: 12 Redneck Days of Christmas

I think the first time I heard the 12 Redneck Days of Christmas by Jeff Foxworthy, I was hanging out with my friends back in the 90s. Some of them watch over us from heaven now. I really miss them at this time of year, but songs like this remind me of the fun we had when they were here. Merry Christmas, Randy!


Christmas Music Video: Santa In A Four Wheel Drive

One of my favorite parts of Christmas are the redneck Christmas songs. In Fatopia a song doesn’t have to mention rednecks or be about rednecks to be a redneck Christmas song. All a song has to do to qualify is make me think of rednecks and BANG! it’s a redneck Christmas song.

DS introduced me to The Lacs and Santa In A Four Wheel Drive last night. This is one of the coolest Christmas songs I’ve heard in a long time. You can’t help but smile when you hear it. See for yourself.

I wonder if he car pools with Leroy the Redneck Reindeer to save on gas. What do you think? Tell me in the comments below.


A Soldier’s Silent Night With Christmas Lights

I’d never heard the poem A Soldier’s Silent Night until I found this video while searching YouTube for videos of Christmas lights set to music. I am so glad that I found this. It touched my heart in a way few things have in a long time.

Although we have no family members actively serving our country now, we’ve had plenty in the past. Thank you to all men and women who give of themselves and to their families who make it possible for them to serve our country to protect us and our freedom wherever they may be called to go. Merry Christmas!


Continuing With Christmas Things That Make Me Happy – Heat Miser and Cold Miser Songs

Last week I posted a video of Christmas light displays every day just because they make me happy during this time of year. Tonight I hit YouTube again looking for Chirstmas videos that make me smile and bring back memories and found the Heat Miser and Cold Miser songs from the 1976 movie The Year Without A Santa Clause.

When I was a kid (back when we only had four television channels), we only got to see this movie one night, once a year. If you missed it that night, you had to wait till next year. So it was an extra special thing my parents would plan for us with popcorn and hot chocolate. Finding this video on YouTube tonight has brought back a lot of warm fuzzy memories and put a huge smile on my face. I hope seeing it here does the same for you.


Traditional Christmas Lights

This Christmas light display is more traditional than the others I’ve posted. It’s not set to music and covers the family’s yard instead of focusing mainly on the front of the house. They’ve built a nice walking path through it, and encourage people to take the tour.

The video is short, but I love the more traditional feel to the display. It reminds me more of the kinds of lights I’d see around here if I could get out and about more.


Porta Potty Christmas Lights

These Christmas lights could only be found on YouTube (and probably your local television station during the news). This is one of the greatest light shows I’ve ever seen. I’d have totally missed it if I’d been puttering around in the car. Now I don’t feel so bad after all. You have to see this … porta potty lights!


Christmas Lights On Crack

I do not suggest watching this video if you have seizures or are not supposed to watch quickly flashing lights for any reason. You have been warned.

The rest of us, however, can kick back and let our jaws drop in awe at the Christmas lights on crack set to a remix of more traditional Christmas music. They jump, they flash, they do it all. I guarantee a smile from this one 🙂
