You learn something new everyday, and this one I count amongst my holiday best. Its fun, it’s informative, it’s a journey into the past layered with enough fiction to keep it interesting…even for the youngest amongst you. I’ll bet you find yourself singing along as the lyrics are revealed…and why not? Tis the season. Oh, one more thing, watch for the visual aid Mr. Pierpont employs at the end of the children’s song. It was a brilliant way to bring a white Christmas down South. ( )
