The Christmas Song - Lettermen

We normally have no open fire in our side of the globe, but I love what this song is about anyway. To me it captures the spirit of christmas so beautifully. It also brings back happy memories of the holidays at home. The uploader commented, "listen to the acapella beginning and ending. Absolutely sublime! The backing throughout the track is deliberately minimal and the overall effect is just stunning!"

I love the way christian culture is pictured in these lines:


"Yuletide carols being sung by a choir ... Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow... And so I'm offering this simple phrase, To kids from one to ninety-two, Although its been said many times, many ways, A very Merry Christmas to you"

Lisa, I think it's the reason why I love this version very much - they blend so perfectly it's a beauty to listen to

Myrna, so I heard. I was about my kid's age when the adults around me were raving about them.

Peggy, I'm glad you enjoyed it and even found some more. Thanks for your thoughts. I appreciate them.

Linda, I love this description of their harmony from you - tight :)

Thom, my eyes moved to David Lettermam too quickly and I was ready for a funny one too, LOL!

This is beautiful, Hazel...I remember listening to the Lettermen sing Christmas songs in the 70's, when my children were little...those were wonderful times, and bring back fond memories, thinking about us all singing along in the car...thanks so much for sharing!
