Happy, Happy Christmas, Everyone!

Graphic by mrgraphicsguy @ deviantart.com

Today I’m celebrating the birth of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Christmas always holds a special meaning for me, but today is extra special as I’m also celebrating my beloved mother in-law’s 60th birthday! My sister in-law also flew in coast to coast from Seattle. I feel so blessed to be able to spend this joyous season with family.

Oh, and what else is special? My friend and frequent FC contributor Vince ‘Rockerdad’ Caro has kindly let me share his awesome Happy, Happy Christmas song with you today. I find myself humming the tune for days after hearing it for the first time and it’s one I can listen over and over again. With a catchy song like this one, I wish he’d recorded an entire holiday album! 😉

Note from the rock star himself:

This was written in about 20 minutes 10 Christmases ago on a 4-Track. It was meant to be a ‘cheap’ present for my folks (they were unimpressed). It was part of a cassette (remember those?) mix of songs my wife and I wrote together to give to friends for Christmas. I sent it to our label in 2002 and they liked it so much they decided to record it in a nice studio (with  the intent of using it for some advert agenda unbeknownst to me at the time). Apparently they were onto something… It was included in the holiday episode of the second season of Tru Calling. And most recently, this year’s Grey’s Anatomy (check out the episode online, the song came on towards the beginning in the surgery scene). My folks REALLY LIKE IT now. Happy Holidays!

Here’s wishing you all a holiday season filled with laughter, love and meaningful memories to cherish throughout the year!

    Merry Christmas!!! Just wanted to let you know I’ve finally been able to watch Hawaii 5-0. Being a HUGE fan of the original, I didn’t know what to expect. You’re right, it’s really good! Love the cast. They did a super job with the update – keeping the best parts. I’m hooked!!

    Again, our taste is pretty much in the same ballpark!

    1. Hey Mike! Didn’t think you’d be reading my blog on your time off, but thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed Five-O! It’s really well-done, isn’t it? Full of action and lots of fun, and the cast have a great rapport together, always a good sign.

    1. Thank you Castor!! I miss reading AM, sorry that I barely have time to check my blog, let alone checking my friends blogs. Looking forward to being back in the blogosphere.

    Hey Vince, LOVE your Christmas song, it’s shades of The Beach Boys and the Kinks!

    Hope you’re not stranded back east, rtm. Get home safely!

      1. Hi Becky & Vince, I’m back but am a bit tired from vacation. Yeah, we made it just in the nick of time before the blizzard hit. Thanks to you both for your contributions whilst I was away!

  3. Love the song, Vince!!!! I sounds like it needs to be played on the store and in retail stores and in homes every Christmas season! Nice work.

    Ruth, thank you for posting the Reason for the season on your page! I hope you all had a good Christmas and that your mother-in-law had a good birthday!
