Chris' Corner: Combining Two "Loves"

Combining Two "Loves"

Those who know me, know that I love Christmas Music, and that my favorite Christmas Carol is O Holy Night.  I found some great versions of this Christmas Classic as well as my all-time favorite version, Mahalia Jackson's and have the videos on my previous post.

A very few people may know that I also love Zydeco... It is such a "fun" and "happy" music...

Guess what I found today on the "Interweb"?
 
...Zydeco Christmas Music!!!

Louisiana Christmas Day


Party Down (not really a Christmas song, but...)


Party this Christmas



*** Interweb is a term I have borrowed from Brent Butt, who wrote and starred in Corner Gas, a Canadian Sitcom that you can probably find on re-runs

I could listen to Christmas music all year.  I find the music always puts me in the right frame of mind.  My all time favourite song is Irving Berlin's Sleigh Ride.

I guess it started in grade 9 being force to learn the Tuba in music and this song was the first Christmas song I learned.

Seems like yesterday.

Wishing you all the best Chris.

We also love Christmas music. We always enjoy Zydeco when we visit Louisiana, its very popular over that way. It's nice to hear all the Christmas music being played on the radio. I listen most afternoons on my home from my home inspections.

Enjoy the Season's Celebrations!

Hi Chris - Wikipedia says that Corner Gas ran at one time in 26 countries including the USA.  I am sure it is reruns somewhere.  I think I see it periodically on Comedy.  Of course, you can see several of the actors in at least two newer series.

Debbie, I am glad you like it.

Marc, Both Corner Gas and Little Mosque on the Prairee seem to have been well received.  Guess the world likes Canadian Humour =)
