O Tannenbaum, or, “Doing That Christmas Hand Jive.”

In keeping with my new Christmas tradition, I’m taking Sunday off. So here’s some inspirational music, in case you are planning to put your tree up today. Or wrap presents to put under it, assuming you can afford any.

Or  if you just wish to spend a little time reflecting on Christmases past, how about these shots of our Christmas trees from past eras? Note how lovely our FLOTUSes are, in various shades of red, white, blue…and purple gowns.

Or, if you need even more help getting into the spirit of the season, you could always “sign” along with Thamsanqa Jantjie. Here he is performing some of the old standards:

“Sign” along with Thamsanqa Jantjie copy

And then there’s this racist selection:

Thamsanqa-Jantjies-interp-009“I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas”

I’m not sure I approve of that last number, butt you can play along too. I’m pretty sure Jantjie signed many other Christmas Carols as well.

Have a great day!
