25 Days Of Christmas Music 2022: Day 16

Hello, everyone. Welcome back to the countdown.

Day 16A 2022

A sweet vintage Christmas card image found on Pinterest. (Original source unknown.)

That moment when one of my all time favorite Christmas songs popped up in a new & incredibly charming (not to mention completely hilarious) holiday movie: 2003’s “Elf”. As James Caan was walking down a street in NYC, he saw Will Ferrell’s Buddy The Elf character asleep in a department store window. Too funny. All underscored by The First Lady Of Song, 43 years after she recorded the tune for her 1960 album, “Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas“. That is what we call timeless.

We’re gliding along with a song
Of a wintery fairyland
Our cheeks are nice and rosy
And comfy-cozy are we
“.

Lady Ella herself circa 1950. (Image found online. Original source unknown.)

Ella Fitzgerald: “Sleigh Ride” (1960, written by Leroy Anderson and Mitchell Parish).

What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?

Until next time, happy listening!!!
