    Why do people always have to criticize White Christmas? To me that song, sung by Bong Crosby, epitomizes Christmas. He does not bellow, and the fact that it is popular, should not be a reason to scorn it.

    My Comment that I am posting has nothing to do with Christmas Songs that we will hear like being in the throes of nothing less then a Chinese Water Torture of being Water boarded. But here is an interesting and true fact that I have researched. St. Nicholas (or Santa Claus) is the patron saint of what ? Respond to me when you find the answer and even if you don’t, again, inbox me and I will give you the answer which leads me to number 2. One of Santa’s reindeer is named “VIXEN”. Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t VIXEN also pertain to a buxom, provocatively dressed and leave nothing to the imagination kind of woman ??……………Think about it.

      As far as I can remember he’s the patron of bakers, sailors, children, lawyers, pharmacists, salters, pawn brokers, prostitutes, students, lovers, butchers, thrashers, women in labour, thiefs, prisoners and prison guards. I probably forgot more than half. What did you want to hint?
      My guess on Vixen is that someone needed a rhyme. Probably on Blitzen. Or the other way around.

        Oh yes, I forgot coopers and drivers. Note that St. Christopher is also the patron of drivers, I guess you can have two because it’s a dangerous thing to do.

        To FMH. Thank You for the added information as I find it interesting, but Yes the Patron Saint of PROSTITUTION is St. Nicholas (aka Santa Claus) I heard about it on the radio just recently and got a big laugh out of it. Again, Thank You.

    No All I Want For Christmas Is You or Last Christmas? Everytime I go Christmas shopping I almost go insane because of those two songs

    And as a Classical Music Buff, why is that Tchaikovsky’s”The Nutcracker” is a Christmas tradition as well as Handel’s “Messiah”. Its like why is it that Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” is always performed at very big Independence Day celebrations. For God’s sake, Independence Day is an All-American Holiday and a composition by a Russian is performed. Can someone enlighten me on this matter

    Not exactly a Christmas classic, but this parody by Bob Rivers is a yearly staple in our household.

    I always enjoyed the Christmas Song, “I Believe In Father Christmas” by Emerson, Lake & Palmer. But when I learned that it was “lifted” from the “Lt. Kije Suite” by the Russian Composer Sergei Prokofiev, I became very disillusioned by it. Leave it to E,L & P to “lift” yet another piece of Classical Music to there repetoire. I would say that 1/4 to 1/3 of their music is “lifted” from Classical Music. So sad because I am a very big fan of theirs.
