Here We Come A-wassailing
Christmas in Kuwait is officially kicking off! I’m really excited to get started with the first day of our little advent calendar. One of my favorite things about Christmas is the music. From Uncle Rick’s arrangements on the organ at St. Thomas to Tuba Christmas. Finding funky versions of classic carols or just the non-stop tunes around the house. It is all awesome! Anita starts to twitch a little after a week or so but deep down she likes it too.
Starting things off the right way I thought it would be fun to include a carol on today’s post. Performing today’s song are The Puppini Sisters and it is an arrangement of Elton John’s “Step Into Christmas”. Elton and his writing partner on this one, Bernie Taupin, discussed their intent with this song. They produced it as an homage to Phil Spectre’s style of 1960’s Christmas albums. Today’s version is decidedly different from that particular style. You can click below to play the Puppini Sisters’ version or download it here.
