December 3rd – Version Three

Standard

In case you are new here, I am on day three of 25 days and 25 different performances of the Christmas song, “O Holy Night”. For those that are not new here, please pardon my repetitive opening throughout the course of these 25 days.

Two of my sisters and I love the song “O Holy Night”. After a series of emails with one of my sisters, I came up with the idea of sharing different versions/performances of the song “O Holy Night”.

Welcome to version number three.

Today’s version comes from a snowman, rather the man behind the snowman.

Raise your hand if you have seen the children’s Christmas classic, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. Raise your hand, GG – I know you’ve seen it.

If you happen to catch “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” during this holiday season, I hope you’ll think about Sam the Snowman singing ‘O Holy Night’. Now, without further ado … I present Burl Ives’ performance of ‘O Holy Night’.

    • Now that you mention it, Byronic – I am glad Burl died before the age of Twitter, Facebook and the growing span of internet. Ignorance is bliss. Like you, I always thought of Burl Ives as being a great neighbor. I even thought he’d be an awesome Grandpa.
      Thanks for visiting my neighborhood. I hope you’ll return to hear other performers sing/play.

    • These songs are bringing back memories of when I was a kid. My Mom played Christmas music all night on Christmas eve and all day on Christmas day. Album, after album, after album. I am glad you liked this one.

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
