The best rendition of White Christmas was by "Der Bingle" (aka Bing Crosby). Note he first time did the song on the screen was in the 1942 movie Holiday Inn and reprised it in 1954 in the movie titled White Christmas.



And of course The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire) by Nat King Cole:


To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Quando Omni Flunkus Moritati

Illegitimi non carborundum.

Never try to teach a pig to sing - it wastes your time and annoys the pig.

If I had my way this Christmas
And if the two others came true
My third wish would be
For now and forever
To share all my wishes with you.....

I'm pretty sure everyone in that picture is dead

Some day someone will look at a picture with you in it and say the same thing.

These people piss me off.

The poem, attributed to Clement C Moore, includes the line “The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth / And the smoke, it encircled his head like a wreath”. It is often accompanied by a picture of Santa Claus smoking a pipe.
Pamela McColl, a publisher and anti-smoking campaigner, has published a new version of the poem which omitted the lines and is illustrated with images of a smoke-free Santa.
“I just really don’t think Santa should be smoking in the 21st century,” she said.
Ms McColl, who campaigns against the use of smoking in the film industry, came up with the project after seeing images of Santa smoking in children’s books. She said that the images were exposing children to smoking and added: “Santa is the most powerful character in the world…I thought this was a great project.
“The omission of these few words do not change the material intent of the author nor do they infringe on the reader’s understanding or enjoyment of this historically-rich story, but by removing these words we may save lives and avoid influencing new smokers.”

I'm sure the neighbours love those guys.

For Christmas, I pretty much only listen to older classic songs. Any Christmas song Bing Crosby sings is awesome. Most newer Christmas song are cheesy and annoying as hell. Except this one:

Not gonna lie I hate this time of year, people have lost their minds and their patience, scrambling to loose thousands on useless gifts for a holiday that is completely blown out of proportion. Family, friends and a feast and of course the obvious link to Christianity(even though they have his birthday wrong and God never actually says celebrate his sons birthday) that is all this holiday should be about.

For anyone who has the Songza app, make sure you check out their Christmas playlists. They have some good ones. Justin Bieber's rendition of Little Drummer Boy comes with a rap (ft Busta Rhymes) lol...although, it's about giving to charity so I guess that's a good thing!

The first snowfall of the season is making it feel a lot more Christmasey!
