December 2

Maybe This Christmas
performed by Canadian Ron Sexsmith

This is another one of my favourite new Christmas tunes, which was made popular by the hugely entertaining British film, "Nativity!" last year. If you haven't seen it, be sure to pick it up over the holiday season... It's the best thing since "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever"! Trust me.

And speaking of all things wonderful, not to mention Canadian... here is a suggestion for any child's Christmas book collection: a quintessential "Canuck" rendition of another carol altogether, "A Porcupine in a Pine Tree". Those of you who have followed this blog in years past will know and remember my general loathing of "The Twelve Days of Christmas", not only for it's nauseating repetitive nature, but for the serious over-play we are forced to endure, usually performed by some of the very worst, "up-and-coming entertainers" of the new millennium.

This lovely little book has given me pause for thought, however, and a whole new way for me to chime in at holiday sing-a-longs... and drat the funny looks I may receive!!

This IS The Great White North, after all.

Hehe we have a 'down under' version entitled - 'A Pukeko in a Ponga Tree'.
A Pukeko is a native swamp hen and a ponga is not strictly a tree, its a tree fern.
